Security hardening begins with a clean Active Directory

About this webinar

Active Directory (AD) resolves the complications faced by IT administrators managing their organization’s network by providing a one-stop solution for enterprise-level administration. However, over time, you may find that your AD becomes cluttered with obsolete or misconfigured data, such as users or objects that no longer exist, unnecessary permissions assigned to security objects and folders, incorrect attribute values for objects, and more.

This can cause your AD to sprawl out of control, inviting insider attacks, affecting database growth, and making daily AD administration tasks difficult. Unfortunately, cleaning up Active Directory using native tools such as PowerShell can introduce unexpected problems, and the limited insights gained about the infrastructure can hinder the cleanup process. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Fix errors and discover problematic instances like unwanted group memberships, invalid permissions on security objects, and files and folders by gaining insights into AD.
  • Perform error-free cleanup, and streamline management activities to avoid future mishaps.  
  • Roll back attribute-level backup and restore to a safe point in the event of a process mistake or a data corruption.
