How Cayosoft Complements Azure AD Connect

This article describes how Cayosoft Administrator complements Azure AD Connect. Azure AD Connect and Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) are synchronization tools designed to copy (synchronize) users and groups between two Active Directory and Azure AD/Office 365. MIM goes beyond Azure AD Connect because it  copy objects to on-premises systems like mainframes and other on-premises non-Microsoft Systems. Where Azure AD Connect is specifically limited to copying between AD and Azure/Office 365 it is configured with a point-and-click interface making it easy for almost any administrator to get configured.

Cayosoft Administrator and Azure AD Connect is the best way to manage the Hybrid Office 365 Enterprise

Conclusion – Most customers running Hybrid Active Directory, Hybrid Exchange or Office 365 Stand-alone will find Cayosoft Administrator plus Azure AD Connect to be the most flexible, cost effective, complete solution.

CAYOSOFT + AZURE AD BENEFITS

Features that show how Cayosoft Administrator complements Azure AD Connect

While Cayosoft Administrator can create and fully configure users and groups in both on-premises and cloud systems it relies on Azure AD Connect synchronization in several important scenarios.

  • Eliminates complex and hard to maintain PowerShell Scripts
  • No C#, Java or PowerShell needed to make required scenarios work
  • When the Cayosoft web portal is used to change a user’s on-premises Active Directory password and those changes needs to be synced to cloud
  • When the Cayosoft web portal is used to change a user’s on-premises Active Directory password and those changes needs to be synced to cloud
  • When the Cayosoft web portal is used to change a user’s on-premises Active Directory group memberships and those changes need to be synced to cloud

How Cayosoft Dynamic Groups compliments Azure AD Connect

Cayosoft Dynamic Groups provides a set of granular rules that will dynamically and accurately populate any type of Active Directory or Exchange Group both on-premises and in the cloud. When used in combination with Azure AD Connect, Cayosoft Dynamic Groups will automatically populate on-premises groups whose membership may then be synchronized to Azure AD and/or Office 365.

How Cayosoft Suspend compliments with Azure AD Connect

Cayosoft Suspend integrates directly into the Administrators’s console (ADUC) and allows admins to Suspend Users and Groups while at the same time setting attributes to match Azure AD Connect filters or to trigger deprovision actions in Office 365 . Cayosoft Suspend does not require a heavy infrastructure, scripting or programming so it can easily be quickly and easily be deployed alongside Azure AD Connect.
