What is Active Directory Security?
Active Directory security preserves Microsoft Active Directory security. It includes a variety of processes to prevent unauthorized access. The security procedures mainly revolve around protecting access to the administrative accounts and applying best practices to maintain access to sensitive data. It also includes patch applications if needed.
Microsoft Active Directory is a popular way for many organizations to manage logins across an organization. Unfortunately, this is a primary target for hackers and other malicious users. A number of best practices have been developed to make Active Directory more secure.
These best practices typically focus on protecting important accounts, such as B. Administrator accounts and accounts for executives who may have sensitive information about a company. The first line of defense is updating all major software including the operating system. Another way to restrict access is to implement the principle of least privilege and only then allow access to specific files depending on who needs them. Effective use of Group Policy can limit the ability of outsiders to gain access to confidential information if an account is compromised.
