Key features

Role-Based Granular Delegation​

Role-based delegation provides complete control of what day-to-day administrators and help desk staff can see and do. One unified set of easy-to-configure Roles enforce a granular, least-privileged administrative model over all of the systems being managed, even in complex hybrid environments. Roles do not require the user to hold native permissions, dramatically reducing the number of individuals requiring Domain, Enterprise, or Global Admin access.

Rule-Based Administrative Control

Administrator delivers a consistent way of performing administrative tasks across on-premises, cloud, or hybrid systems.  Roles determine who can perform a specific task, Rules determine how that task must be completed.  Generation of unique usernames, displaying drop-down lists with pre-populated values and controlling number formats are just a few examples of the control rules provide. 

Runbook Automation of Common IT Tasks

Removing the human factor by automating the execution of complex IT tasks eliminates errors that can place security and compliance goals in jeopardy. Runbooks automate task execution without intervention, which means better efficiency as well as the ability to dynamically keep data accurate, helping to keep IT operating smoothly. 

Agentless

Unlike legacy management tools, Cayosoft Administrator was purpose built to directly manage on-premises, hybrid and cloud platforms. The software is able to work directly against any supported platform be it on-premises or in cloud. The software does this without agents, dangerous changes to your firewall or the need to work against a local and probably out-of-date cache.

Legacy solutions that sustained these goals in the past cannot adapt easily to hybrid and cloud, and often become barriers to adopting these new platforms.
