Today 85% of organizations worldwide operate on Microsoft Active Directory, and at these organizations, IT departments extensively make use of one of Active Directory's most valuable and powerful capabilities, Administrative Delegation.

Unfortunately, while precisely delegating administrative access in Active Directory is easy, once delegated, trying to precisely identify and lockdown exactly who is delegated what administrative access in Active Directory is very difficult.

As a result, today, at most organizations, there is a substantial amount of delegated administrative access provisioned in their Active Directory, yet organizations do not know exactly who is delegated what administrative access, where and how within their Active Directory, and this lack of precise (accurate) insight leaves organization substantially vulnerable.
