ADDRESSING A PARAMOUNT GLOBAL CYBER SECURITY NEED
Today, from almost the entire U.S. Government to almost every publicly-held company worldwide, and from the world’s biggest social-media companies to almost all cyber-security companies, 85% of all business and government organizations worldwide operate on Microsoft Active Directory (on-premises).
Within these organizations, at the very heart and foundation of IT, cyber security and privileged access (i.e. the “Keys to the Kingdom”) lie their mission-critical Active Directory (on-premises) deployments.
Paramount Defenses’ unrivaled Microsoft-endorsed Gold Finger and Gold Finger Mini privileged access audit tools uniquely empower organizations to be able to accurately and instantly find out exactly who has what privileged access in their foundational Active Directory deployments.
These tools can uniquely and instantly determine exactly who possesses the “Keys to the Kingdom” i.e. the most powerful privileged access in foundational Active Directory deployments.
ACTIVE DIRECTORY PRIVILEGED ACCESS – AT THE HEART OF THE SOLARWINDS HACK
It remains a less known fact that almost all major cyber security breaches in the last decade cardinally involved the compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged user account.
It has now also been established that instrumental in and cardinal to the success of the SolarWinds Hack worldwide was the compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged user account.
Specifically, perpetrators of the SolarWinds hack only targeted Active Directory environments, and once inside corporate networks, they engaged in privilege escalation to compromise an Active Directory Privileged User account, which they then used to gain access to the servers that gated access to everything in the Cloud.
The compromise of a single Active Directory privileged user account is tantamount to the compromise of the “Keys to the Kingdom.” It instantly jeopardizes the security of the entirety of an organization’s IT assets, both on-premises and in the Cloud, and can quickly result in a massive cyber security breach.
“The need to be able to accurately identify, minimize and regularly audit the number of privileged users in every Active Directory deployment is paramount to organizational cyber security,” said Sanjay Tandon, CEO of Paramount Defenses, and former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security.
ENABLING INSTANT, ACCURATE, PRIVILEGED ACCESS INSIGHT, WORLDWIDE
The company’s unique Gold Finger and Gold Finger Mini Active Directory Privileged Access Audit Solutions embody a decade of innovative research and development, and remain unrivaled in their ability to accurately determine privileged access in Active Directory.
The accurate determination of who has what privileged access in Active Directory is a very difficult challenge, and the company’s tools can uniquely help organizations worldwide accomplish in minutes what could otherwise take months, thereby delivering extremely valuable insights at a button’s touch.
Specifically, its unique solutions are the world’s only solutions that can accurately determine privileged access in Active Directory based on “who has what effective permissions in Active Directory.”
Unfortunately, even today, thousands of organizations continue to rely on identifying “who has what permissions in Active Directory,” which only delivers substantially inaccurate insights, reliance upon which leaves them substantially exposed and dangerously vulnerable to compromise.
“Over the past few months, we’ve had so many organizations from around the world request the ability to be able to easily and instantly buy short-term and long-term licenses online, and today we’re happy to make this possible for millions of professionals and thousands of organizations across the world, so that they can easily acquire our solutions to accurately and instantly identify and lock-down privileged access in their foundational Active Directory environments,” added Mr. Tandon.
The company’s online store is now open and can serve thousands of customers worldwide, every day.
