Active Directory Disaster Recovery
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, July 12, 2018 TIME: 5:00pm CEST, 11:00am EDT, 8:00am PDT
Active Directory has grown both in importance and complexity in recent years, with businesses have become increasingly dependent on AD for authentication and authorization of mobile workforce and cloud-based applications. The new AD usage landscape has introduced greater complexity to the enterprise IT environment, raising the risk of AD disasters tied to human error and cyberattack. More and more frequently, attackers are using AD as an attack vector to compromise enterprises and, in some severe cases, wiping out the entire IT environment.
Challenges include the rise in ransomware attacks targeting Active Directory the increased dependency on AD for cloud-based and mobile workforce authentication, and the fact that homegrown Disaster Recovery solutions and manual processes are long, complex and prone to errors.
The vast majority of enterprises today use AD as a core identity service, and continue to use it even as they migrate other services into the cloud. While AD brings many benefits, it can become a single point of catastrophic failure if not well-guarded.
Join this Kuppinger Cole Webinar to learn more about:
- Understanding the threats to AD
- How to secure your AD
- Recovering from different disaster scenarios
In the first part of this webinar Dan Blum, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the recent escalation in threats to AD, such as ransomware.
In the second part of the webinar Darren Mar-Elia, Head of Product at Semperis, will discuss possible disasters that could harm your AD and how you could recover your AD forest seamlessly.

There is no debate about the fact that ransomware is the fastest-growing kind of cybercrime. Due to their wide range of access rights and thus potential ransom leverage, privileged accounts are at the top of the target list for cybercriminals. Therefore, organizations need to pay special attention to securing these kinds of accounts.
