Tenable teams with IBM Security X-Force Red to prevent Active Directory attacks

Mark Thurmond chief operating officer TenableTenable, the Cyber Exposure company, announced an expansion of its strategic relationship with IBM Security X-Force Red

They will deliver Active Directory security services that continuously detect and prevent attacks against the active directory and connected environment in real-time. By combining the power of Tenable.ad with X-Force Red’s team of veteran hackers, organisations can identify and disrupt attack opportunities before bad actors can leverage them.

Active Directory is a target-rich environment that can, if left vulnerable, offer attackers a route to privilege and control of the entire domain. Most organisations struggle with Active Directory security due to misconfigurations piling up as domains increase in complexity, leaving security teams unable to find and fix flaws before they become business-impacting issues. 

“Vulnerable and misconfigured Active Directories are behind nearly every major cyberattack today. By leveraging known flaws and misconfigurations, bad actors can elevate privileges and move laterally through networks,” said Mark Thurmond, chief operating officer, Tenable. “We’re excited to partner with X-Force Red to find and fix Active Directory weaknesses before they become tomorrow’s attack path.” 

Leveraging Tenable.ad, the X-Force Red team provides deployment, configuration, support and tool management to identify Active Directory misconfigurations and other weaknesses. From there, the team prioritises the highest-risk flaws based on weaponisation, and manages the complete remediation process from end-to-end. The result is a hardened Active Directory environment, disrupted attack paths, and no next steps for bad actors.
