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 immediately 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.

How Cayosoft Guardian Excels — The Key Features
Instant Object and Attribute Recovery
Instant object and attribute recovery allows administrators to immediately 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 immediately identified and quickly reversed from granular change history without wasting time with lengthy operations that a legacy file-based AD recovery tool requires. Cayosoft Guardian’s immediate 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, 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.

Traditional Backup and Restore Solution Enhancement
Traditional backup solutions are not able to cope with immediate recovery of user accounts and groups that provide access. Cayosoft Guardian improves traditional backup solutions by adding immediate 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 in minutes, 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
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

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.
