Forrester just released The State of Microsoft Active Directory 2018 report by Merritt Maxim, and it’s definitely something that anyone interested in current state of Active Directory (AD) usage and where it’s going should read.

The report goes on to detail these findings with nine top trends that Forrester predicts will be shaping AD deployments in 2018. You’ll probably recognize your companies in these!
At STEALTHbits we’ve seen these trends in our customers and have helped them deal with the security implications. We help customers understand what’s in their AD, where the complexity contributes to vulnerability, and how it should be simplified and configured to align with organizational needs. AD is secure when it’s clean, understood, configured properly, monitored closely, and controlled tightly – something we can help with.
