Active Directory (AD) is a crucial part of an organization’s network.
AD is the lifeblood of modern networks, and without it, the whole organization can grind to a halt.
Attackers target the system to access and obtain new credentials to help them move laterally in the network.
Its progressive nature and the complex security framework gives an unfair advantage to attackers.
Based on observations made during incident response assignments and penetration test assignments, we can confirm that the IT criminals put significant effort towards attacking Active Directory.
