    Overview

    A full 80% of all breaches use compromised identities. CrowdStrike Falcon® Identity Protection stops breaches faster by protecting workforce identities everywhere leveraging advanced AI in the world’s largest unified, threat-centric data fabric.

    Active Directory stores information about objects on the network and makes this information easy for administrators and users to find and use. Active Directory uses a structured data store as the basis for a logical, hierarchical organization of directory information.

    This data store, also known as the directory, contains information about Active Directory objects. These objects typically include shared resources such as servers, volumes, printers, and the network user and computer accounts.

    Security is integrated with Active Directory through logon authentication and access control to objects in the directory. With a single network logon, administrators can manage directory data and organization throughout their network, and authorized network users can access resources anywhere on the network. Policy-based administration eases the management of even the most complex network.
