LDAP Monitoring for Security
LDAP Security Monitoring detects suspicious LDAP queries used to perform reconnaissance on Active Directory.
Reconnaissance is the first phase of every targeted attack. AD objects and their attributes are ready targets as they can be viewed by all authenticated users. LDAP queries are commonly used to explore Active Directory to discover users, groups, and computers.
Microsoft provides no easy way to monitor LDAP queries to see the query that was issued and where it came from. Even turning on diagnostic level LDAP monitoring provides little value and is not advised by Microsoft, as it will generate a tremendous amount of noise in the event logs.
StealthINTERCEPT enables organizations to easily detect and respond to the reconnaissance activities of attackers looking to leverage information gathered from AD objects and entities. Security teams can readily notice early signs of compromise to safeguard systems and the sensitive data they contain.
Monitor LDAP queries in real-time to see the query issued and where it came from.
Detect bad actors’ attack techniques and behaviors without the need for native logs.
LDAP Events Enrich SIEM
Feed real-time LDAP events into SIEM so analysts can make informed decisions about threats.
Kill Chain Reconnaissance
Stop an attack early in the kill chain with insight from LDAP enrichment of security events.
That’s the beauty of StealthINTERCEPT. We can not only detect the attack as its happening, but we can pinpoint the affected machines right away, accelerating remediation and recovery efforts.
