Group Membership Updates can be triggered by events like user provisioning or user de-provisioning or executed on a schedule. This eliminates manual time-consuming and error prone processes that put security, efficiency and compliance efforts in doubt. As users join, change roles, or depart, groups are automatically and dynamically updated. When a critical membership change is overlooked or made in error – the results can be Security Breaches, Compliance Fines and loss of IT credibility.
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 allow the administrator to easily and accurately define a group’s membership. When rules are enforced they automatically keep the group accurate so that only authorized people are given access to the correct resources.
Cayosoft Dynamics Groups offers easy to create and flexible membership rules that dynamically and accurately update group memberships as needed, reducing complexity and enabling administrators to concentrate on what is most important. Unlike other group update tools, Cayosoft does not require that you understand LDAP Query Language to accomplish create complex rules. And because Cayosoft Dynamic Groups accurately keeps group memberships up to date – security, efficiency and compliance goals are sustained 24x7x365.
Accurate group memberships enforcement is critical for maintaining security and for sustaining legal or regulatory compliance goals. Built-in group membership queries can be added to group membership rules to dynamically update any Microsoft Group Type from Active Directory, Exchange, Azure AD through and including Office 365 Groups. Cayosoft provides the single tool you will need to keep all of your groups accurate and up-to-date. As your needs grow from AD or Exchange on-premises today, to hybrid and then later to cloud only – you will be able to continue without expensive swap-outs or upgrades.
Easy to use Self-Service Group Management allows distribution list, application, and data owners to manage who has access to their resource. Group Owners can also publish their groups, allowing others to request access and they can require approval before users are added to their group through a request or by help desk admins. By allowing group owners to manage their own groups, expensive and time consuming help desk requests are eliminated. Also by allowing group owners to manage their own groups, the compliance and security burden is moved to the person who understands the business reasons as to why a member should or should not be added.
Certification reviews, with “Attestation” periodically ask group owner to verify the need and accuracy of group membership to satisfy key compliance control & audit requirements. Security and Compliance Certification Reviews with “Attestation” satisfies many legal, regulatory, 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 un-used 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.
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. Unfortunately, groups are no longer in one place. In the Modern Microsoft Enterprise, groups may be on-premises or in the cloud. Because groups control access to sensitive resources and data, it is critical they be kept up-to-date so that security and compliance goals are not jeopardized.
