Identify unresolved SIDs

Background / Value

SIDs (Security Identifiers) are character strings that are used to identify user and group accounts in Active Directory. SIDs become unresolved when users or groups with direct access rights are deleted in AD. By using unresolved SIDs insider threats can gain access to sensitive resources.

8MAN clearly identifies unresolved SIDs in your system.
