Whats New Cayosoft Administrator 3.1

What’s New in Administrator 3.1.x


█ What’s New

Administrative Units

AdministrativeUnitsAdministrative Units are sets of queries that can be used to represent administrative boundaries and simplify day-to-day tasks within the Cayosoft Administrator Web Portal. Administrative Portal users must first be delegated the correct Role membership to see any of the built-in Administrative Units.

The out-of-the-box Administrative Units include, Active Directory, My Organization, Microsoft Office 365 and Self-Service. Additional Administrative Units can be constructed to mirror existing Active Directory Organizational Units (OUs) or to create new types of management boundaries that cut across multiple OUs.

Expanded Hybrid Capabilities

New capabilities in both the Automation Console and the Web Administration Portal, make Cayosoft Administrator the most complete solution for Active Directory, Exchange, Hybrid and Office 365 Management and the #1 solution for Microsoft hybrid deployments.

Self-Services Password Management

Self-Service Password Management empowers users to change existing passwords, reset forgotten passwords and unlock their accounts themselves so that issues are resolved without costly delays or expensive calls to the help desk.

Self-Service Group Management

Self-Service Group Management allows end-users or application owners to quickly update important groups. In addition to being more efficient, self-service group management improves compliance and security by allowing the data owner to make important access decisions while simultaneously eliminating expensive and time consuming calls to admins or to the help desk.

Self-Service Expiring Account Management

When contractor or other subordinate accounts are no longer used, these accounts become a security threat as seen in both the Target Inc. and US OPM Breaches. With Contractor & User Account Over site, Cayosoft empowers the person responsible for those accounts to be notified and required to renew the account according to policy or permanently deactivate the account.
