Hybrid Change Monitoring, Instant Rollback, and Threat Detection for Microsoft Platforms
Hybrid Active Directory Recovery and Monitoring Software
Avoid Costly Outages from Cyber Threats or Mistakes
Your Active Directory (AD) or Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) contain vital user identities that are crucial to ensuring your business operates without interruption. Whether from malicious actions, like cyberattacks and malware, or mistakes, like accidental deletions and misconfigurations, corruption of your Active Directory can stop your business in its tracks and cause costly outages that can last hours, days, or even weeks.
Cayosoft Guardian was designed to reduce the complexity of hybrid Active Directory security, by combining threat detection, monitoring, and recovery into one comprehensive solution. Cayosoft Guardian continuously monitors directories and services, allowing you to isolate suspect changes and instantly recover unwanted changes made to both objects and settings. This is done across on-premises AD, hybrid AD, Azure AD, Office 365, Microsoft Teams, and Exchange Online, all from Cayosoft Guardian’s single, unified console.
In order to view changes across hybrid Microsoft environments, at least six native logs need to be checked.
The average global cost of insider threats is now over $11.5 million.
Azure AD Recycle Bin only keeps deleted users and groups for 30 days before they’re permanently erased.
How Cayosoft Guardian Excels — The Key Features
Instant Object and Attribute Recovery
Instant object and attribute recovery allows administrators to quickly recover from mistakes or malicious changes, like when a user experiences an outage from an unwanted change to their account or their access. With Cayosoft Guardian, the change can be easily identified and instantly reversed from granular change history without wasting time with lengthy operations that a legacy file-based AD recovery tool requires. Cayosoft Guardian’s instant Active Directory recovery software resolves outages fast, vastly reducing the costs associated with the most common types of outages. Costly user downtime, caused by mistakes or malicious changes to group memberships, group policy objects (GPOs), account settings, Microsoft licensing, Microsoft Teams memberships, and accidental AD object deletions, are common, typically hard to identify, and cost millions in lost productivity every year. With Cayosoft Guardian, resolve outages quickly and get users back to work faster.
Continuous Change Monitoring and Alerting
Continuous change monitoring and real-time alerting across Active Directory, Azure AD, Office 365, and other key Microsoft systems, allows administrators to quickly identify malicious changes or mistakes and instantly recover from them. Understanding the complex changes taking place across Active Directory, Azure AD, Office 365 and other key Microsoft systems is critical to securing your Microsoft environment. Cayosoft Guardian’s Active Directory (AD) auditing and monitoring software enables you to stop security breaches, malicious changes, and mistakes, like when an admin accidentally deletes an important object, that will ultimately cause expensive outages, compliance fines, and possible loss of business reputation. By alerting administrators about important changes before they escalate into problems, Cayosoft Guardian ensures security, compliance, and business continuity goals are met, and costly outages are avoided.

Traditional Backup and Restore Solution Enhancement
Traditional backup solutions are not able to cope with instant recovery of user accounts and groups that provide access. Cayosoft Guardian improves traditional backup solutions by adding instant Active Directory recovery for objects and attributes, like user identities and group access, that are the first step to recovery. Cayosoft Guardian is the perfect complement to your current backup and recovery strategy. Working alongside your traditional backup solution, Cayosoft Guardian allows you to bring back user identities and their access instantly, greatly reducing the recovery process and recovery times compared to other recovery tools and native methods. Cayosoft Guardian also ensures a clean restoration, without the reintroduction of the compromised server(s) that originally caused the outage.

Others Who Trust Cayosoft
95 million Active Directory accounts are attacked each day.
Azure Active Directory saw more than 25.6 billion brute force attacks last year.
Cayosoft Guardian provides monitoring, backup, and recovery for a number of AD objects, attributes, and settings critical to maintaining AD security and operational integrity, including:
On-Premises Active Directory (AD):
- Contact, group, user, and computer objects and attributes
- Group memberships, group policy objects (GPOs) and GPO settings, privileged groups, organizational units (OUs), and Conditional Access policies (CAPs)
- On-premises Exchange settings and policies
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD):

Yes, Cayosoft Guardian will restore hard-deleted or permanently deleted AD objects. Since the objects are no longer present in Active Directory or Azure AD, Cayosoft Guardian will recreate the object using the details stored in its database.
Note: While Guardian recreates deleted objects, some links to those objects are not restored and may need to be manually assigned. For additional information or questions about how Cayosoft Guardian recovers deleted AD objects, reach out to us.
Cayosoft Guardian does not recover on-premises domain controllers, but Cayosoft Guardian Forest Recovery does. Learn more about Cayosoft Guardian Forest Recovery, including all the features of Cayosoft Guardian plus domain controller recovery and forest recovery.
