The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States standardized on an effectively future-proof framework to help model your own Active Directory cybersecurity risk management plan. New threats come up, and attackers keep trying, but the NIST Framework is structured to ensure all your bases are covered if – or rather when – an attack happens.

At Quest, we offer a complete and continuous AD and Office 365 cyber resilience lifecycle that provides defense in depth across many layers that map to the NIST Cyber Security Framework:
The days of a strong perimeter being enough are over. Attackers are getting more sophisticated, and their tools are getting more powerful. You need a partner every step of the way. See for yourself how Quest can help with complete cybersecurity risk management across your entire Active Directory environment.
Identify indicators of exposure (IOEs) and prioritize the attack paths an
attacker could use to own your environment. With Quest and SpecterOps
BloodHound Enterprise, you can quickly assess the potential risks in your
environment and make a plan to eliminate the most vulnerable paths based on
the calculated percentage of your organization that could utilize each attack
path. Pinpoint critical choke points to eliminate any lower path.
Protect your environment to ensure attackers can’t make changes to
critical groups or GPO settings. Also prevent them from linking or
exfiltrating your AD database to steal credentials — regardless of the
privileges they’ve hijacked. Quest makes it easier than ever to
eliminate manual GPO management and governance tasks to reduce potential
Detect indicators of compromise (IOCs) with real-time auditing, anomaly
detection and alerting. Only Quest makes it easier than ever to detect
suspicious activity so the actions and affected accounts can be automatically
locked down and rolled back to previously safe versions if necessary.
Respond quickly and accelerate investigations with automated information
gathering on indicators of compromise (IOCs), as well as additional indicators
of exposure (IOEs). Quest helps you make the most of the cybersecurity risk
management information you’ve gathered to automatically respond to
potential threats. Don’t wait until it’s too late; we can help.
Recover AD from a scorched earth scenario and restore business operations,
data integrity and customer trust in minutes or hours instead of days, weeks
or months. Only Quest helps you slash recovery times while bolstering recovery
fidelity to ensure user and customer trust. Get peace of mind that any AD
disaster will not become a business failure.

The GDPR requires tight response times, which are pivotal and compulsory, and Change Auditor enables us to achieve compliance.Micro Destro CIO and IT Manager, AFV Beltrame Group
Change Auditor object protection is a lifesaver. I have set it up to prevent changes to ACLs on certain directories on our files servers, as well as to protect all administrative accounts. We’ve had pen testers come in and be very surprised they couldn’t get past Change Auditor object protection.Enterprise Administrator Large Retail Chain
