“Because of the issues, we adopted a ZERO-Quest Policy”
Sr. Directory Owner

“When we purchased ARS we licensed it per user.
Now they want us to pay per object.”
IT Director

“We didn’t see the value in connecting ARS to Azure/Office 365,
so we tried scripting stuff ourselves.”
Sr. IT Manager

“I have been using ActiveRoles for about a decade now. Nothing has really changed with it other than some branding and the addition of Powershell. The interface is out dated. The technology is out dated. We found you guys and everything looks sleek and well thought out. I can’t wait to see everything it can do and compare the costs. I am ready to move on from Quest.” – Sr. Directory Owner

Why Cayosoft, why now?

Assigning correct On-premises, Hybrid or Cloud tasks  to admins is simple with Cayosoft’s Unified Role-Based delegation model that increases security and reduces risk. Unlike Quest’s legacy management products, Cayosoft Roles don’t use AD Only Access Control Lists (ACLs). Cayosoft unified roles deliver a least privilege delegation model that grants users only the tasks they need to complete on-premises, hybrid or in cloud, without explicit native permissions assignments.


Access control has evolved beyond tedious management Access Control Lists (ACLs)  to Role-Based-Access-Control. Office 365 and Exchange a great examples of two modern systems that user Roles to assign administrative permissions. Unlike Access Template based on ACLs, Cayosoft uses Roles to assign administrative permissions to users without ACLs or native permissions. Cayosoft Roles form the basis of a powerful least-privileged delegation model that will secure both on-premises and online Microsoft platforms.




The Quest replacement program simplifies the replacement process by reducing the costs associated with implementing Cayosoft Administrator as a new and innovative solution. With the lack of Hybrid capabilities, the closing of many of Quest's development labs, the departure of key experts & executives, and questions about the future of the "New" Quest Software - customers are looking at Cayosoft as a reliable & viable alternative.

The industry looks to Cayosoft for Innovation. In 2014, years before the competitors, Cayosoft founders realized that Microsoft's move to cloud would require a new management architecture - and Cayosoft was born. The Cayosoft founders realized early-on that tools they had built-in the past to manage Active Directory could not be adopted to Hybrid, Public Cloud, Private Cloud or a SaaS offering - a new architecture was required. Cayosoft accepted the challenge and built the next generation of administration from scratch. Cayosoft's new architecture acts more like a "Service Bus" allowing direct management of supported platforms on-premises, across hybrid boundaries or in the cloud - without requiring add-ons, complex workflows, extra databases or sync-engines. The Cayosoft Architecture is so innovative, that even competitors who claim to be innovative are downloading Cayosoft Administrator to see how it works and use it as a basis for their own on-premises or SaaS offerings.
