Endpoint security has been a hot topic in the technology and corporate sectors for a few years. Especially with the emergence of bring-your-own-device practices, it has become even more critical to put safeguards in place to ensure the security of sensitive information.
Active Directory is a staple of enterprise IT and it nominally ensures secure, authenticated access to a company's core business applications.
