I’m featuring on Paramount Defenses’ list of Notable Names in the AD and AD Security Space

Last week I received a message from Sanjay Tandon from Paramount Defenses. In his message, he notified me of my name being added to the list of notable names in the Active Directory (AD) / AD security space:

Hi Sander, Sanjay here.


I just stopped by to say that I really appreciate all the effort you’ve put in over the years to help the community. Whether it be sharing knowledge on your blogs or staffing a booth at Ignite, your efforts are clearly evident and appreciated.


In fact, to express my appreciation of a few folks, last week I penned a little post titled A Few Notable Folks in the Active Directory Space, and you’re on the list!


Thank you again for all your efforts over the years, and all the best for the future.

Best wishes,
