Microsoft acquired Aorato, creators of Directory Services Application Firewall (DAF), in November 2014 to be included in their broader portfolio. Aorato gives our customers powerful identity and access solutions that span on-premises and the cloud, which is central to our overall hybrid cloud strategy.

It understands what normal behavior is and then identifies anomalies, so a company can quickly see suspicious behavior and take appropriate measures to help protect itself. Key to Aoratos approach is the Organizational Security Graph, a living, continuously-updated view of all of the people and machines accessing an organizations Windows Server Active Directory (AD).
