Hybrid identity systems embracing both Active Directory and Azure Active Directory are increasingly common as organizations deploy the optimal mix of on-premises assets and cloud services. But with that flexibility comes complexity. With a hybrid scenario, the potential attack surface expands for adversaries. It’s now common for cyberattacks to start on-premises and move to the cloud—or move from cloud to on-premises.

Directory Services Protector for Azure AD is the only security solution that provides a unified view of AD and Azure AD through a single tool that addresses the complete cyberattack lifecycle—before, during, and after an attack. DSP easily integrates into the existing enterprise security stack and generates a risk profile for the entire hybrid AD environment. DSP constantly scans AD and Azure AD, looking for the unique indicators of exposure (IOEs) and compromise (IOCs) within each environment and across them.

If a breach does occur in AD or Azure AD, DSP automatically and completely remediates it to stop attackers in their tracks. Organizations gain a complete and accurate picture of threats across the entire hybrid AD environment—and a complete solution to defend against them.

How we are different

DSP differs from competitors because it:
- Is the only Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) solution to offer automated remediation of malicious changes in both on-prem AD and Azure AD;
- Delivers tamperproof tracking to catch changes that evade traditional log-based or event-based systems such as SIEM solutions; and
- Provides 24/7 incident response services.
