You can configure Symantec Web Gateway to integrate with Active Directory. Active Directory is a Microsoft product that stores user account information and provides authentication on Windows networks. Active Directory is Microsoft's implementation of LDAP. Integration with Active Directory provides the following benefits on Symantec Web Gateway:
Users are displayed in reports
User names are displayed in reports.
You can create policies based on Active Directory user names and group categories.
You can use a Central Intelligence Unit to configure Active Directory integration on managed appliances. With a Central Intelligence Unit, the communication with Active Directory occurs with the managed appliances, not with the Central Intelligence Unit.
