Deleting and disabling Active Directory user and group objects is simply not-enough. Permanent or temporary SUSPENSION retains these objects for critical Audit, Compliance and Security purposes. Suspension can also be used for accounts that will be re-activated when an employee or contractor arrives to work.
Cayo l Suspend(tm) empowers administrators to efficiently and accurately suspend users and groups avoiding error prone manual processes and preventing costly security and compliance problems.
Compliance and Security
It is natural for people to join and leave an organization. Sometimes people leave the organization temporarily for medical reasons or military deployments. Permanent departures are typically due to retirements or terminations. In both cases native Active Directory tools do not provide functionality to properly secure the user's accounts. To properly suspend and secure AD users and groups, a complex and potentially error prone manual process must be followed. Because native tools lack a 'suspend' process, security and compliance requirements such as SOX 404, HIPPA, and PCI are put at risk. Improperly suspending a user or group can also subject the organization to security breaches, audit failures and potential fines.
