Who made Dwight a Domain Admin?

Get real-time alerts on privilege escalations, changes made outside your change management window, abnormal login activity and more. DatAdvantage performs User Behavior Analytics to baseline user activity and detect anomalous behavior to stop breaches before they happen.


Before DatAdvantage, we could never be sure that a file wasn’t accessed when a password was compromised. Now I can confirm to management that we’re in the clear and no breach has occurred.

Give Auditors the Active Directory visibility they require

Give auditors quick and accurate answers to questions like:

  • Who added Allen Carey to Domain Admins?
  • When did Allen Carey gain access to a particular resource?
  • What did Allen do with that access?
  • Have any changes occurred outside our change control window?
  • Who modified this group policy?
  • What Active Directory resources can Allen Carey modify?

Efficiently clean-up Active Directory

Active Directory can be complex and complexity breeds mistakes. Artifacts in your AD can also greatly impact performance. DatAdvantage helps you clean-up things like:

  • Disabled users and groups
  • Looped-nested groups
  • Empty security groups
  • Groups with disabled users
  • Individual users on ACEs
  • Orphaned SIDs

The reports DatAdvantage produces allow us to identify files that are no longer accessed and, working with the data owners, these are archived, reducing the need to continuously increase server capacity.
