Attivo Networks®, the expert in identity security and lateral movement attack prevention, and a Multi-Award Winner in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program, has expanded its identity infrastructure assessment technology for Azure Active Directory (AD).
These new capabilities add hybrid environment support for continuous exposure visibility and provide remediation guidance for on-premises, in the cloud, and managed AD environments.
Nearly 80 percent of attacks are caused by threat actors leveraging identity security gaps to gain privileged access and move laterally throughout the network to execute their attack plans.
This new enhancement adds to the Attivo Networks’s existing identity security portfolio, which provides over 200 checks for exposures that adversaries use to gain privileges, install backdoors, and proliferate malware.
Attivo has also added 15 additional automated Azure AD risk health checks and remediation guidance.
“The Attivo ADAssessor solution continues to provide essential identity exposure visibility across on-premises and cloud deployments, now including Azure AD,” explains Srikant Vissamsetti, SVP of engineering at Attivo Networks.
“Enterprises can now reduce risk by finding, fixing, and remediating exposures within AD.”
“Our technology limits the attacker’s ability to identify sensitive targets, compromise misconfigurations, move laterally, and gain persistence across hybrid environments.”
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading industry analyst and consulting firm dedicated to the IT and data management market, recently analyzed the rapid increase of Active Directory exploits and identity-based attacks, as well as the industry’s response to this growing threat.
Over 70% of organizations reported that they had accepted AD exposures due to operational concerns, and only 33% stated they believed they could defend against AD attacks in real-time. Over half of organizations surveyed plan to prioritize securing Active Directory further to defend themselves against identity-based attacks.
With this enhanced new offering, organizations can easily boost their protection of Active Directory in Azure and on-premises, to gain continuous visibility with actionable insight into exposures, and misconfiguration for domains, users, and devices.
ADAssessor is the gold standard for easy, scalable use, deploying without elevated privileges to a single standard workstation within the AD forest.
The solution includes a management console for analysis and management.

Attivo Networks®, which has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by SentinelOne, are the experts in Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR), protecting against identity compromise, privilege escalation, and lateral movement attacks.
Through cyber visibility programs, deception, and conditional access tactics, the Attivo ThreatDefend® Platform offers a customer-proven, scalable solution for denying, detecting, and derailing attackers and reducing attack surfaces without relying on signatures.
The portfolio provides patented innovative defenses at critical points of attack, including at endpoints, in Active Directory, in the cloud, and across the entire network by preventing and misdirecting attack activity.
Forensics, automated attack analysis, and third-party integrations streamline incident response.
Deception as a defense strategy continues to grow and is an integral part of NIST Special Publications and MITRE® Shield, and its capabilities tightly align to the MITRE Engage™ Framework.
Attivo has won over 180 awards for its technology innovation and leadership.
In addition to the Platinum Award, Attivo Networks also won a much-coveted 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Extraordinary Leadership & Innovation Award, in recognition of their best-in-class cybersecurity and identity security platform in the global marketplace.

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now entering it’s Seventh Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Attivo Networks (First of Three)
Best Identity Detection & Response Solution
Attivo Networks®, a leader in identity detection and response, has expanded its portfolio to include cloud identity security.
Organizations provision human and non-human identities (applications, virtual machines, serverless functions, and such) on the network and in the cloud, which attackers target early in the attack cycle to progress their attacks.
By stealing these identities, they can impersonate authorized users, access resources, move laterally throughout the network and cloud environments, conduct reconnaissance, elevate privileges, identify targets, and compromise data.
While many tools intend to keep networks secure, Identity Detection and Response (IDR) gives organizations a critical new weapon in their arsenal to find and fix credential and entitlement weaknesses and detect live attacks on a real-time basis.
As modern cybercriminals attempt to exploit vulnerable credentials and entitlements to move through networks undetected, IDR solutions play a meaningful role in stopping them, whereas other tools simply cannot.
Attivo Networks IDR Suite of Products can seamlessly extend to the cloud and deliver detailed entitlement visibility for identities – including users, applications, containers, serverless functions, and other assets.
Attivo Networks (Second of Three)
Best Intrusion Detection & Prevention Solution
Attack surfaces have expanded dramatically with the shift toward remote work putting identity at the forefront of security, a major shift from traditional perimeter-based strategies.
Organizations must now defend identities across the entire enterprise with identity-based, least-privilege access programs and defenses capable of detecting attack escalation and lateral movement on-premises and in the cloud.
Attivo Networks has leveraged its deep experience in privilege escalation and lateral movement detection to become a significant player in the Identity Detection and Response space.
In the last year, the company has secured its leadership position based on its broad portfolio of capabilities that focus on unprecedented visibility to exposures and misconfigurations of identities and entitlements and early detection of credential theft, misuse, and privileged escalation activities.
(The Attivo ThreatDefend® Platform delivers unparalleled attack prevention, detection, and adversary intelligence collection based on cyber deception and data concealment technologies for an informed defense. The platform efficiently derails attacker discovery, lateral movement, privilege escalation, and collection activities early in the attack cycle across endpoints, Active Directory, and network devices on-premises, in clouds, and on specialized attack surfaces.

Attivo Networks (Third of Three)
Best Cloud Security Solution
IDEntitleX is Attivo Networks’ Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement (CIEM) solution, which provides unprecedented visibility for cloud permissions management.
Customers gain actionable visibility to cloud identity risks and entitlement exposures so they can address risky entitlements and drift from security policies.
This solution makes it easy to identify and reduce risk by providing intuitive and interactive graphical visualizations for cloud identities, roles/permissions, and resources.
Defenders now gain the visibility needed to see misconfigurations and excess permissions attackers can leverage to create attack paths and persistence within the cloud environment.
*Attivo Networks is also a Returning Premier Sponsor of the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program for the Fourth Year, and a Multi-Platinum Award Winner in the 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Programs.
