Active Directory Change Auditing

As the authentication and authorization hub of your IT infrastructure, the ability to audit, record, and prevent changes and access in Active Directory is essential to the security, compliance, and operational integrity of your network.

Audit Active Directory object and attribute changes.

AD Objects & Attributes

Audit and prevent any or all changes to Active Directory objects and attributes, including creations, deletions, and modifications.

Audit GPO changes in Active Directory

Group Policy Objects (GPOs)

Audit and prevent any or all changes to Group Policy Objects with all the details, including the specific values changed.

Monitor Active Directory authentication for attacks and account abuse.


Monitor and prevent any Kerberos or NTLM authentication and detect authentication-based attacks against Active Directory.

Audit Active Directory LDAP queries to determine application usage and reconnaissance.

Active Directory LDAP

Analyze LDAP traffic to identify operational issues or security-related activities like reconnaissance.

Over 90% of enterprises worldwide rely on Active Directory to secure access to their networks and critical assets. STEALTHbits’ suite of Active Directory auditing, reporting, and threat detection solutions enables organizations to secure Active Directory above and beyond native controls, automate adherence to compliance regulations, and streamline operations for expedited issue resolution.

STEALTHbits addresses a challenge with native log data that I’ve struggled with for 8 years. STEALTHbits does the analytical work for me, specifically detecting modern attack vectors like horizontal account movement, the kind of technique that enables attackers to acquire privileged credentials and do the most damage.

Detect privileged account abuse and attacks against Active Directory

Built-in AD authentication-based attack analytics detect patterns of activity associated with common Active Directory attacks like Lateral Movement, Concurrent and Impersonation Logins, and Golden Ticket. Additionally, surgical authentication and LDAP monitoring helps to detect violations of account usage and attacker reconnaissance activities.

Detect attacks against AD with real-time authentication attack analytics and reconnaissance detection.

Prevent unauthorized changes and authentications

Lock down critical groups, user attributes, and group policy objects to prevent unauthorized changes, and block users from authenticating from or to any resource to prevent abuses of privileges that violate security or operational policies. With additional security controls that extend native capabilities, organizations can finally secure Active Directory at every level.

Proactively prevent changes to active directory objects, group policy objects, and authentication.
