The State Of Microsoft Active Directory 2018

For Today's Digital Businesses, AD Is The Identity Backbone Of The Entire Ecosystem

March 20, 2018

Why Read This Report

Microsoft's Active Directory (AD) has become the most widely used enterprise repository for digital identities. Its centralized collection of user account information also makes it a tempting target for hackers in search of credentials they can use to elevate privileges and pilfer data. As enterprises adopt more cloud services, the momentum for shifting to AD in the cloud rises in tandem. This report uses Forrester survey data, client inquiries, advisory, and ongoing research to review the most important AD trends and provide insights that security pros can use to shape their AD strategy.
