The Importance of Active Directories

As operating systems are updated, it’s important to assess the Active Directory (AD) to manage and control access to critical network resources. As system administrators come and go, Active Directories can easily become polluted. Reviewing the AD every few years can locate vulnerabilities and realign the environment. Mergers and acquisitions are another key time to assess, plan, and consolidate directories so that they operate as one cohesive organization. In either scenario, having a solid governance plan in place that is followed and reviewed periodically can keep your directories healthy.
