Complete identity threat detection and response

Identity-based cybersecurity threats are everywhere, and when the vast majority of businesses depend on Active Directory and Entra ID for identity services, complete Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) protocols are essential. At Quest, we can help you make sure your organization is properly secured with ITDR solutions that help you establish a lifecycle of cyber resilience for identity-based platforms: Active Directory Threat Detection & Response (AD TDR).

Why Quest for Identity Threat and Detection Response

In an era where cybersecurity threats are more sophisticated than ever, traditional identity and access management (IAM) systems, such as Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Microsoft Entra ID, are facing challenges in adequately safeguarding digital infrastructure. Identity is complex, and fraught with misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. To truly be secure, identity platforms need their own security discipline. Gartner recognized this, and after labeling identity as one of the primary vectors through which attacks on organizations occur, Gartner provided a definition to the process and tooling required to defend it: Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR).

At Quest, we recognize the dynamic and increasingly complex nature of IAM roles within today's intricate security landscape. The Quest portfolio of ITDR solutions empowers organizations to instill this protocol in their security infrastructure by allowing them to simplify security, detect vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, and respond to threats quickly.

Simultaneously, at Quest, we understand that true identity security requires multiple layers and contribution from all infrastructure security teams. Our ITDR solutions are made to build on one another to establish a full in-depth lifecycle of cyber resilience, with both ITDR and AD TDR capabilities. Furthermore, by aligning to proven security frameworks, like the six pillars of NIST (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover and Govern), our ITDR solutions will ensure that your organization is prepared to mitigate threats before, during and after an attack.

Aligning to NIST: Identify Indicators of Exposure and Protect Hybrid AD from Critical Changes

Quest Identity Threat Detection and Response solutions allow you to:

  • Benchmark your current AD configurations against pre-defined industry best practices. Surface indicators of exposure (IOEs) and attack paths that exist within your environment.
  • Secure your environment's crucial objects from compromise and misconfiguration proactively, including sensitive Group Policy Objects (GPOs). Get focused reports on object status and effortlessly revert any unwanted changes to a previous, trusted state.
  • Lock down objects and GPOs swiftly, enforcing strict controls to thwart any unauthorized alterations.


Aligning to NIST: Detect unwanted changes in Hybrid AD

Quest Identity Threat Detection and Response solutions allow you to:

  • Stay one step ahead of potential threats by continuously monitoring for indicators of compromise (IOCs) and configuration drifts, ensuring that you're well-prepared to respond promptly to potential incidents.
  • Detect attack attempts, lateral movement through your network, and post-attack damage done to your critical workloads like Exchange and file systems
  • Remove auditing limitations and capture change information without the need for system-provided audit logs, eliminating blind spots, and resulting in increased visibility of suspicious user activity.

Aligning to NIST: Respond to Threats by Locking Down and Securing AD. Recover from Accidents and Disasters Quickly

Quest Identity Threat Detection and Response solutions allow you to:

  • Grasp the who, what, where, and when of suspicious activities effortlessly by weaving together threats and anomalies, highlighting indicators of exposure (IOEs) and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that demand your attention, all with intelligent and contextual notifications that will help reduce alert fatigue.
  • Seamlessly forward IOEs and IOCs to your SIEM tools, such as Microsoft Sentinel and Splunk, for seamless integration and centralized visibility.
  • Equip your team with practical remediation guidance and unmatched capabilities to swiftly correct any misconfigurations and recover from broad disasters. With precision and speed, restore your AD environment, down to the object level, ensuring business continuity even in the face of total disaster.
