How fast could you recover your critical Azure AD resources—user, group, and role objects—after a cyber incident that compromised your Azure service? Even after Azure comes back online, you might discover that you no longer have those critical Azure AD objects that enable authentication and access control to cloud-hosted apps and services. The security implications of implementing a hybrid AD environment can be easily overlooked:
- Azure AD is home to certain objects that exist only in the cloud and can’t be replicated in your on-premises AD environment.
- If a ransomware attack strikes, the Azure AD Recycle Bin is of no use if, for example, user accounts are compromised.
- Without the ability to quickly recover Azure AD resources—user, group, and role objects—your business operations will stall, even if Azure AD is back online
