SmartProfiler for Active Directory - First tool to capture risks identified in MITRE and ANSSI
SmartProfiler for AD is the first tool to perform comprehensive health checks, misconfiguration assessments, and security and risk evaluations for multiple Active Directory forests. It offers a wide range of 168 tests, covering both MITRE and ANSSI.
To ensure transparency and provide you with valuable insights, DynamicPacks Technologies SmartProfiler for Active Directory have compiled a list of links associated with each test implemented by SmartProfiler. These links serve as references, explaining why Microsoft and other reputable vendors recommend executing these tests within an Active Directory Forest. The SmartProfiler for Active Directory includes 53 Configuration tests, 23 Health tests, and 73 Security tests, all of which are recommended by esteemed organizations such as MITRE and ANSSI.
Active Directory being a critical component provides unified management features for user accounts, resources and access rights or permissions. Gaining high privileges on Active Directory instantly grants full control over all resources that are managed through the Active Directory infrastructure.
Recent observations by ANSSI have highlighted a renewed interest among adversaries in targeting Active Directory infrastructures, recognizing their crucial role in most information systems. Malicious actors with elevated privileges can deploy malware on a large scale throughout the entire network, utilizing methods such as Group Policy Objects (GPOs) or direct connections like "psexec" and "wmiexec." Inadequate security controls in such environments pose a significant systemic threat to the overall IT systems within organizations.
ANSSI consistently encounters a critical deficiency in cybersecurity maturity when it comes to Active Directory environments. The observed security level progressively weakens over time due to lax day-to-day operations and management practices.
To mitigate this growing risk, ANSSI has developed and released an assessment checklist along with corrective measures. This resource is specifically aimed at Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), enabling them to assess the actual security level of their Active Directory infrastructures. The checklist will be regularly updated, incorporating ongoing research, practical insights gained from audits, as well as threat intelligence, to ensure its effectiveness.
SmartProfiler for Active Directory is a multi-forest tool that enables customers perform tests highlighted by ANSSI and MITRE organizations.
