Directory Services Integration

iboss offers streamlined directory services integration that assures secure, transparent authentication and accurate policy enforcement across your organization. This reduces the burden on IT resources and lowers your total cost of ownership (TCO).

Active Directory/LDAP/Domain Controller Integration
iboss Web Security permits organizations to set policies based on users and groups defined in Microsoft Windows Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, OpenDirectory, or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

NTLM Single Sign-on
With iboss Web Security, the user authentication is done automatically and transparently using NTLM Single Sign-on technology. This ensures a better user experience with no unnecessary prompts to access the Internet. It also provides accurate, dynamic policy enforcement based on the currently logged-in user.

Multiple Active Directory Domains
iboss can authenticate users from multiple Active Directory servers, even if the servers are part of completely separate domains and forests. You can easily add multiple servers within the iboss appliance to authenticate against different Active Directory domains automatically.

Active Directory Groups
iboss Web Security allows seamless integration with existing Active Directory groups. The iboss filtering groups match the Active Directory groups in a one-to-one fashion for easy filtering configuration. If a user is added to a group on your Active Directory server, there is no need to add the user within the iboss as it will automatically be filtered under the Active Directory Group.


eDirectory/Netware Directory Services (NDS)/Domain Controller Integration

iboss allows organizations to set policies based on users and groups defined in Novell eDirectory and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

eDirectory Real-Time Login Event Processing
iboss integrates with native eDirectory libraries to provide automatic and transparent eDirectory authentication. As soon as a user logs into their workstation, eDirectory communicates directly with iboss, notifying the appliance that the user login has occurred. iboss then applies the appropriate filtering policies based on the user's eDirectory group membership. iboss integration with eDirectory reduces load on the directory server and provides real-time integration even for multi-thousand node networks.

Multiple Simultaneous eDirectory Server Monitoring
iboss allows you to register multiple eDirectory servers and will monitor logon events from each of the servers simultaneously. This allows iboss to integrate into even the most complex Novell eDirectory environments.
