Active Directory (or AD) is a Microsoft solution that consolidates different network objects—computers, servers, printers, etc.—into a single system. Many companies use AD as their primary tool for seamless authentication and authorization. This is the core function of any identity management system, which makes AD one of the main targets of cybercriminals who want to gain access to sensitive data.
The Softline team developed a comprehensive report on all problems, ranging them by impact, and prepared a plan to improve infrastructure and remediate all vulnerabilities.
Softline's team was comprised of professionals having rich experience with Microsoft software. The engineers from Softline have unique competencies in the market and in-house software for technical audit. As a result, they can examine the selected Microsoft system in a week and identify its vulnerabilities and weak spots.
"I cannot but praise the high competencies of the engineering staff who directly performed the work. Cooperation with Softline team opened our eyes to many hidden subtleties. We are glad that we were able to identify problems now, as we plan to scale the infrastructure further. At the scaling stage, eliminating these vulnerabilities would be much more expensive. Their prompt detection saved the time and resources of our specialists. Now we can bring the infrastructure to the proper state in advance and scale it without any hassle and friction,"—said Irina Seregina, CEO of the Dobroflot Group.
"Dobroflot's IT staff are true professionals. However, ensuring enterprise information security is a never-ending battle, and any infrastructure can have some gaps. This is especially true for the case when the infrastructure had been created 10+ years ago and contained some legacy segments that failed to meet state-of-the-art standards. The in-depth expertise of Softline engineers in Microsoft products allowed the customer to reveal these gaps and start eliminating them. Moreover, the enterprise received not only high-quality service but also access to the installment payment model with the Softline Finance tool,"—said Ilya Eremeyev, large account manager, Softline.
