Securing & Protecting Active Directory Your Active Directory (AD) is the database in which all of your organization’s sensitive identity data like user passwords, social security numbers, financial information, etc. is stored. Given the sensitive nature of the information contained in an Active Directory, it is imperative that the directory is protected at all times. The security of the directory data is essential not only to protect against data leakage and identity left, but also to help meet audit and compliance regulations. Any number of systems and applications need access to the information in the AD for authentication, authorization and access reasons on a daily basis, but not every application needs access to ALL of the information inside the AD. This is where the need for an LDAP Proxy Firewall comes in. For more information, check out Optimal IdM’s solution, LDAP Proxy Firewall. How does it work? An LDAP Proxy serves as a firewall for sensitive data stored in the directory. When systems need access to the identity data inside the active directory, that request is routed through the proxy. The proxy then accesses only the specific data that is needed, leaving the other sensitive data protected and unseen behind the firewall. What are the benefits for my organization?
