Protect and Recover From Unwanted AD Changes

Save Time and Minimize Downtime with Immediate Recovery

Accidental deletions and attribute changes from human error or scripting mistakes can cause costly outages and downtime. Native tools and recycle bins can only recover so much, and recreating a hard-deleted object requires navigating clutter logs and backup file comparisons. Even when you can find the problem, restoring users access can require multiple steps, costing valuable IT resources.

Key Capabilities

Detect and recover from unwanted changes across Active Directory, Azure AD, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, and Exchange Online settings in a single, unified platform. Break away from managing multiple legacy auditing and recovery tools, fumbling with backups, and deciphering cluttered logs.

Minimize Outages and Downtime
Deploy immediate rollback anywhere in your hybrid Active Directory environment without wasting time mounting and searching backup files.  Quickly understand and remedy lockouts to minimize user downtime and avoid broader outages.
Quickly Identify Issues

Cayosoft Guardian provides a comprehensive search interface that enables you to see changes that may not be immediately obvious without understanding other objects which may have changed as well. Cayosoft Guardian empowers admins to:

  • Identify possible issues or misconfiguration and alerts
  • Identify suspicious changes and alerts
  • Identify any change including those to policies and application assignments
  • Automatically rollback changes
  • Execute change approval
Immediately Recover Unwanted Changes

Go beyond native tools to instantly restore group settings and memberships, object attribute data, Office 365 license settings, conditional access policies, hard-deleted objects, and more. Recover multiple changes at once to immediately reverse even far-reaching damage.

Leverage a Continuous Backup

Traditional backups miss data between intervals and require a full restoration of your environment, even when dealing with granular adjustments. Continuously backup your environment and selectively restore only the necessary changes.
