You can configure Symantec Web Gateway to integrate with Microsoft Active Directory through LDAP. Active Directory is a Microsoft product that stores user account information and provides authentication on Windows networks.
The integration with Active Directory provides the following benefits:
User names are displayed in reports.
You can create policies based on Active Directory user names, workgroups, and group categories.
You can use a Central Intelligence Unit to configure the Active Directory Integration on managed appliances. You can also configure each Symantec Web Gateway directly. You can configure Symantec Web Gateway to obtain user login information through NTLM authentication or by installing Symantec's Domain Controller Interface software (DCInterface) on an Active Directory server.
