Tenable to highlight Active Directory security capabilities at GISEC 2021


Tenable, the Cyber Exposure company, will be exhibiting at the Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC), taking place at the Dubai World Trade Center from May 31 – June 2, 2021.

Successful cyber breaches typically start by exploiting a known vulnerability followed by attacks on Active Directory to escalate privileges, move laterally, install malware and exfiltrate data affecting IT systems and operational technology. Unfortunately, most organizations struggle with Active Directory security due to misconfigurations piling up as domains increase in complexity, leaving security teams unable to find and fix flaws before they become business-impacting issues.

Following its acquisition of Alsid in April, Tenable added Tenable.ad™ to its suite of Cyber Exposure solutions. With Tenable.ad, organisations can see, predict, and act to address risk in Active Directory to disrupt attack paths before bad actors exploit them.

Tenable’s powerful combination of risk-based vulnerability management and Active Directory security solutions help prevent threat actors from getting a toe-hold in the corporate environment, stopping attacks before they can begin.

“The acceleration of digital transformation and remote work models over the past year has resulted in a surge of cybercrime. Active Directory is a prominent and valuable target for threat actors who can use to gain access into a network and  conduct further attacks,” said Maher Jadallah, regional director – Middle East, Tenable. “At GISEC 2021, we look forward to having impactful conversations and discussing the most effective ways for customers to see, predict and reduce cyber risk in the digital era.”

Tenable’s senior leaders and cybersecurity experts will be available to meet and discuss the current cyber threat landscape, including the common Active Directory misconfigurations organizations need to address to reduce their risk, with demonstrations of Tenable’s security solutions.

From its booth SS3-D1, Tenable will offer demonstrations of its Cyber Exposure platform, including Tenable.io, Tenable.sc, Tenable.ot and Tenable.ad.
