Automated Group Management for the Microsoft Enterprise

Keep Groups Accurate and Up-to-Date Automatically

Group management with native tools is not only tedious and time-consuming, but inevitable mistakes can cause groups and memberships to become dangerously inaccurate.  It’s no surprise that security groups that control user access have become a favorite target of attackers, compliance officers and auditors.

Key Capabilities

Cayosoft Administrator automatically and dynamically keeps groups accurate across Active Directory, Azure AD, Office 365 and hybrid environments, helping you sustain key security, compliance and efficiency goals.

Automate Group Membership

Flexible and granular membership rules automatically adds or removes members without human involvement, reducing complexity and enabling administrators to concentrate on what is most important. Trigger dynamic group membership updates by events, like user provisioning and deprovisioning, or execute updates on a schedule. As users join, change roles, or depart, groups are automatically and dynamically updated, keeping groups accurate and maintaining critical IT system security and  compliance.

Granular Rules Eliminate Errors and Scripting
Easy-to-create granular membership rules allow your organization’s data to be used to include or exclude members of a particular group. Inclusion Rules define the list of users that must be in the group while Exclusion Rules define the list of users who should never be in the group. Granular membership rules keep group accurate so that only authorized people are given access to the resources associated with that group.

Unlike other group update tools, Cayosoft Administrator does not require that you understand LDAP Query Language to create complex rules. And because Cayosoft Administrator accurately keeps group memberships up to date, you can feel confident that your security, efficiency and compliance goals related to group management are sustained 24x7x365.

When a critical membership change is overlooked or made in error – the results can be Security Breaches, Compliance Fines and loss of IT credibility.

Secure Privileged Access

Monitor unwanted group membership across your environment, both in Active Directory and Office 365, to ensure only authorized employees are granted access to sensitive information.

Improve identity and access management

As users are hired, change roles, change locations, leave the organization, start or stop projects – provisioning of access means that groups need to be updated. Purpose-built for the hybrid enterprise, Cayosoft automates group management for Microsoft, regardless of where the access is granted.

Simplify Compliance​

Verify the accuracy of group memberships and easily eliminate unnecessary groups to fulfill security and compliance regulations. Cayosoft Administrator automates the process of periodically asking group owners to verify group memberships in order to satisfy key compliance control and audit requirements. 

Security and Compliance Certification Reviews with “Attestation” satisfies many legal, compliance and security requirements found in HIPPA, SOX and PCI and other regulations. In addition to verifying the membership, these controls will identify and optionally suspend/disable unused or unwanted groups, reducing your overall management burden.

Supports Segregation of Duty Enforcement

For security and compliance reasons, an “Auditors Only Group” that may allow the clearing of security logs, should not contain members that are actually being audited. If a user that is being audited is accidentally added to the “Auditors Only Group”, Cayosoft Dynamic Group Rules will automatically remove the user from the group, sustaining the security or compliance requirement.
