Free Active Directory Management Tools Consolidate your existing separate tools into one console!
Unlike other companies that provide Free Active Directory tools we embed our Free Active Directory tools directly into our full product. By embedding our Free Active Directory tools you benefit (rather than our marketing department) from our core expertise that is focused on solving real world directory and identity challenges. Another benefit of embedding our Free AD tools is that they are maintained and updated frequently so they won’t be posted and forgotten by us. Differences between Free Trial and Freeware Tools Mode When you install any of our products they automatically begin a 25 day Free Trial period; this is a fully functional trial. At the end of the 25-day free trial you will be asked to purchase a license or continue in Free Active Directory Tools mode (called Free Mode).
Role-Based Delegation of Tasks
Role Based Security makes delegating what users see and do within Cayosoft Administrator simple. One unified set of easy to configure roles enforce a granular least privileged administrative model over all of the systems being managed. Roles do not require the user to hold native permissions, so the number of Domain, Enterprise or Global Admins can be reduced to a secure number of people.
Rule Based Controls ensure delegated administrative tasks are completed in the correct and consistent way. For example, if all Exchange Distribution Lists should begin with the letters DG- a rule can be created to enforce this requirement. Rules enforce on-going IT Policies which are critical for maintaining security and for sustaining legal or regulatory compliance goals. Rules impose restrictions in the way admins or help desk staff can update or change directory or other critical systems data.

Password Expiration Notification proactively notifies your users before their password expires, eliminating help desk costs and avoiding expensive user downtime. Admin Assistant continuously monitors user accounts then automatically sends the users an email with instructions on resetting his or her password.
User Self-Service Password Change allows users to easily change their own passwords through an easy to use self-service web portal. Combined with free password change notifications, users are notified by email that it is time to change their AD password. The current password policy is clearly displayed so that users are successful in creating a new password according to the organizations password policy requirements and complexities.
Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) for AD computer objects is available within the Cayosoft Administrator Web Portal. Now delegated administrators can now be empowered to access LAPS passwords without the need to distribute the LAPS EXE or granting overly powerful native permissions and without running dangerous scripts.
Bitlocker full disk encryption recovery details for AD computer objects is now available within the Cayosoft Administrator Web Portal. By providing delegation over Bitlocker details, trusted administrators can now be empowered to recovery data through granular delegation without granting overly powerful native permissions and without running dangerous scripts.
Account Lockout Notification proactively sends Account Lockout Notification Alerts to your Administrator and Help Desk Staff when a user account lockout occurs so IT can proactively work to resolve the lockout. With Admin Assistant a lockout becomes an opportunity to demonstrate Help Desk responsiveness while reducing costs and reducing expensive user downtime.
