About our session

Raymond Comvalius and I will present a 45-minute session:

Increasing the security of on-premises Active Directory with Entra and Defender technologies

10:15 AM – 11AM

Would you believe a networking infrastructure can become more secure by adding cloud to it? This session gives you real-world examples and thorough guidance on how Entra and Defender technologies make on-premises environments more secure. Air-gapping and the accompanying immense challenges for updating, activating and monitoring for admins are truly referred back to the 80s in this session.

A lot of old-fashioned CISOs truly believe air-gapping their environment and requiring multi-multi-multi-factor authentication for access off-premises is the way to go. It is not. In this session, Sander Berkouwer and Raymond Comvalius show how organizations can:

  • Require multi-factor authentication only when needed because of risk
  • Get notified and can automatically remediate leaked credentials
  • Ban bad passwords
  • Manage fragile Domain Controllers better

This session features a couple of exciting demos to showcase the strengths of Azure AD, Azure AD Connect Health and Microsoft Sentinel. This is a session no Active Directory admin should miss!

Join us!
