What are the benefits of connecting the DLP to an LDAP Server?

Resolution

By configuring a LDAP server on the DLP appliance (Manage System-->Servers) you can target policies to users, groups and or computers that are found in your directory. 

If you have already configured CI Agents, connecting to a LDAP server allows you to view workstation names and user log in credentials.

DLP appliance supports the following LDAP servers:

• Microsoft Active Directory 2000, 2003, 2008
• openLDAP
• Apple Directory Services
