As Active Directory’s role in the enterprise has drastically increased, so has the need to secure the data it stores and to which it enables access. Unfortunately native Active Directory administration tools provide little control over user and administrative permissions and access. The lack of native control makes the secure administration of Active Directory a challenging task at best for administrators. In addition to limited control over what users and administrators can do in Active Directory, there is a limited ability to report on activities performed in Active Directory which makes it very difficult to meet audit requirements and secure Active Directory. As a result, organizations need assistance in creating repeatable, enforceable processes that will ultimately reduce their administrative overhead, while simultaneously helping increase availability and security of their systems.
This whitepaper outlines seven common challenges associated with securely administering Active Directory, and provides helpful insight into what NetIQ can do to assist you with these difficulties.Featured White Papers, Inside the Briefcase, SECURITY
