The Active Directory / LDAP authentication with VMware Enterprise Systems Connector provides the same functionality as traditional AD/LDAP authentication. This model functions across the cloud for Software as a Service (SaaS) deployments.
- End users authenticate with existing corporate credentials.
- Requires no firewall changes, as communication is initiated from the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector within your network.
- Transmission of credentials is encrypted and secure.
- Offers secure configuration to other infrastructure such as BES, Microsoft ADCS, SCEP, and SMTP servers.
- Requires VMware Enterprise Systems Connector to be installed behind the firewall or in a DMZ.
- Requires extra configuration.
