Unauthorized Domain Admin Access


An important part of network security is the task of managing the users who have been given authorization for administrative access to your active directory. Occasionally, unauthorized individuals with malicious intent will attempt to gain access to your domain, which could potentially cause a breach in the security of your network. Furthermore, in some cases, an authorized user might inadvertently cause a problem without any ill intent. For these reasons, your IT department must carefully manage this access.

How Automation Can Help

How Automation Can Help

The talented individuals running your IT department already have a full schedule of important tasks and duties to take care of. What if there was an automated tool that could offload the process of managing domain access while also making it faster, easier and more effective? The right automation playbook can provide actionable instructions for orchestrating and automating responses around unauthorized creation of new domain admin users.

The playbook responds to the task of creating a new admin user while verifying the legitimacy of the request. Additionally, the playbook can build indicators of compromise and implement them on the network infrastructure for an added level of security control. This allows for automatic blocking of future such requests that are unauthorized.
