Tenable highlights Active Directory security capabilities at GISEC 2021

Intelligent CIO

Cyber exposure company Tenable, is exhibiting at the Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC), taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from May 31y to June 2, 2021 to highlight Active Directory security capabilities.

According to Tenable, cyberbreaches typically start by exploiting a known vulnerability followed by attacks on Active Directory to escalate privileges, move laterally, install malware and exfiltrate data affecting IT systems and operational technology. Unfortunately, most organisations struggle with Active Directory security due to misconfigurations piling up as domains increase in complexity, leaving security teams unable to find and fix flaws before they become business-impacting issues.

Following the acquisition of Alsid in April, Tenable added Tenable.ad to its suite of cyber exposure solutions. With Tenable.ad, organisations can see, predict and act to address risk in Active Directory to disrupt attack paths before bad actors exploit them.

Tenable’s powerful combination of risk-based vulnerability management and Active Directory security solutions help prevent threat actors from getting a toe-hold in the corporate environment, stopping attacks before they can begin.

“The acceleration of Digital Transformation and remote work models over the past year has resulted in a surge of cybercrime. Active Directory is a prominent and valuable target for threat actors who can use to gain access into a network and conduct further attacks,” said Maher Jadallah, Regional Director – Middle East, Tenable. “At GISEC 2021, we look forward to having impactful conversations and discussing the most effective ways for customers to see, predict and reduce cyber-risk in the digital era.”

Tenable’s senior leaders and cybersecurity experts will be available to meet and discuss the current cyberthreat landscape, including the common Active Directory misconfigurations organisations need to address to reduce their risk, with demonstrations of Tenable’s security solutions.
