Hybrid Azure Active Directory Change Monitoring

Easily identify issues and threats before they become security problems

Detect changes and threats faster for sustained security and minimized risk

The Challenges of Change Monitoring Across Multiple Microsoft Platforms

As the risk of cyberattacks, insider threats, mistakes and ransomware increases, it is becoming critical to have a unified and complete understanding of changes being made across hybrid Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).  The days of collecting security logs, event logs, and security settings to audit Active Directory Changes effectively is gone forever because logs leave blind spots and are a favorite target of attackers.  Unfortunately, the limitations of Microsoft’s native event log based auditing and legacy directory change auditing tools widely used today, make it complex and time-consuming to uncover unwanted active directory changes. And changes made on-premises that replicate to the cloud go un-noticed. This causes critical changes to go undetected, leaving organizations vulnerable to attack both on-premises and in Azure AD.

Cayosoft’s continuous hybrid change auditing and threat detection goes beyond logs and SIEM tools to deliver unified and real-time ongoing directory change monitoring across AD,  Azure AD, and Office 365. Cayosoft’s unified hybrid change monitoring also provides real-time alerts and comes with the option to manually or automatically rollback unwanted changes. Using Cayosoft may mean the difference between preventing a security incident or having to face the results from a security breach. 

Hybrid Change Visibility

Traditional auditing tools were not built with hybrid or cloud in mind so they lack the ability to easily view changes made in or between on-premises and cloud directories.

Streamlined Threat Detection

Operating across hybrid environments is complex, often involving disparate systems and separate tools, making it difficult to identify and instantly resolve threats.

Instant Change Rollback

Legacy auditing tools lack integrated rollback and often require additional products for change recovery. Separating change auditing from recovery creates delays opening the door to attackers.


The average cost to recover from a ransomware attack is $1.85 million.

24 Days

The length of time it takes to detect an attacker in a network is 24 days.


More than 25.6 billion cyberattacks are attempted on Azure AD each year.
