The Cayosoft Vision


Prior to the release of Microsoft Active Directory (AD), IT systems were not integrated at the security layer and they operated as disconnected islands, each with their own model for granting user access to their resources. Essentially, each system re-created the definition of a user and how that user was granted access through groups or roles.

As more and more organizations accepted and then deployed AD, many system vendors added support for AD’s access model, but not all. To connect these remaining systems, organizations would often setup complex and expensive Identity Management systems. Unfortunately, the cost, complexity and risk associated with these systems put them out of the reach of all but the largest organizations. As legal or regulatory compliance requirements increased in the 2000s, even mid-sized organizations raced to implement identity management so they could demonstrate the ability to grant and deny user access centrally.

Even then it was clear that AD and its infrastructure had become the authoritative source for identity information for a vast number of organizations. It was then that AD began to be seen as an alternative to a monolithic Identity Management platform strategy and the AD-centric Identity Management approach was born.

Cayosoft was founded by experts that defined the Active Directory-Centric Identity Management model and market.

Enter the cloud…

The cloud provides an appealing alternative to maintaining on-premises systems, but the cloud further disconnects administrators and organizations from their data and IT systems. Cloud systems like their on-premises predecessors still represent islands of identity that are managed separately. Many organizations however, continue to keep AD on-premises because it represents the proverbial “Keys to the Kingdom” and remains under the complete control of the organization.

Caught in the middle of this move to the cloud are the IT administrators and help desk personnel who are forced to manage these islands of identity. Updating users, groups and roles across multiple systems from multiple interfaces is as common as the errors and the inefficiencies that come with this approach. Cloud also introduces new requirements, such as monitoring the cloud vendor’s performance and pressure to conserve on costly cloud licenses by eliminating unnecessary accounts.
