January 27

Watch Now

In today’s hybrid cyber infrastructures, an organization’s Active Directory is a cornerstone. Virtually all access to on-premises and cloud-based resources are tied to Active Directory accounts. So when a disaster such as a cyberattack or ransomware strikes, Active Directory recovery has to be a No. 1 priority: Nothing else can be recovered until Active Directory is up and running again.

Data protection solutions are not enough, because AD recovery must be coordinated across every domain in the IT environment. And cloud-based recycle bin tools are fraught with holes. Organizations need a comprehensive recovery tool for both platforms, or else they will face a long road before they’re able to return to business as usual.

Join us January 27 at 11am PST/2pm EST for a valuable 30-minute webcast on AD recovery and the role it plays in broader cyber resilience. Our panel of industry experts will cover topics such as:

· How to develop an AD recovery plan that will better prepare you to weather the next storm
· Best practices and tools for synching directory data in the event of a crisis
· Smart solutions to automate the recovery process and prevent corruption of data as it’s brought back online
