Active Directory Testing

Active Directory Testing

Assessing whether your Active Directory instance has been setup and managed to defend against attackers.


Active Directory (AD) is a technology used on Microsoft Windows-based servers and computers, allowing administrators to create and manage domains, users and objects within a network.
It is a core service in many organizations, providing identity and access management, controlling and configuring systems and assigning security policies.

Over the years of performing red team tests we’ve documented that, in the majority of these engagements, Active Directory configuration is one of the main weaknesses in an organization’s defenses.

Our Active Directory Attack Resistance Service is targeted directly at testing AD installations for common problems and covers the 3 top areas that we commonly find weaknesses in when performing red team engagements: password quality, credential harvesting and enterprise configuration.
