Enterprise directory services are valuable and common tools for
mapping individual people as users and groups in a network for identification
purposes. Today's Enterprise 2.0 is organizations' that leverage
internet technologies, applications and tools to liberate the workforce
from the constraints of legacy communication and productivity tools.
Enterprise 2.0 makes accessible the collective intelligence of many,
translating to a huge competitive advantage in the form of increased
innovation, productivity and agility. However, managing the users
of an enterprise 2.0 environment is extremely difficult without enterprise
directory service such as Active Directory or eDirectory. For
Web security, it is often difficult to implement global usage, security
policies and bandwidth management rules without the ability to identity
users and groups within the Secure Web Gateway. In many instances,
certain groups of users or departments need priority on bandwidth, or
access to certain content and applications that are otherwise blocked
for the organization as a whole.
DeepNines ID Manager provides seamless integration with directory
services to identify and manage the users within the network.
ID Manager maps user identities to DeepNines Secure Web Gateway
to provide visibility, reporting and management by user and group.
This granular control optimizes network bandwidth by ensuring that policies
are created and applied only to applicable users and user groups.
ID Manager integrates with enterprise 2.0 environments of enterprise
directory services of eDirectory, Active Directory and Open Directory,
for the identification and management of users within the DeepNines
Secure Web Gateway.

DeepNines products that utilize ID Manager are the Secure Web Gateway, iTrust Agent via the Secure Web Gateway, and the technology's protection and findings are logged for reporting by the Network Security Manager.
- Directory Services Integration.
DeepNines ID Manager integrates with directory services
eDirectory, Active Directory and Open Directory. A
lightweight agent is installed on the directory services
sever, and constantly polls the sever for information on
the users that are logged on, immediately syncing the information
with DeepNines Secure Web Gateway. Once parameters
are set in the system for a user either as individually,
as part of a group or both, those controls are applied to
that user whenever he/she is logged on to the network.
- Enforce Custom Policies. DeepNines
Secure Web Gateway uses ID Manager to enforce AppControl,
Bandwidth Manager and Content Filter policies
by user or user group. Any of the customized controls
for bandwidth, applications and content available in
Secure Web Gateway can be applied to users and/or user
groups through ID Manager.
- Detailed Reporting on Users and Groups.
With ID Manager enabled, detailed reports on individuals
and groups are available through DeepNines Network Security
Manager. Reports on security risks, bandwidth
usage and policy violations are available by user and group
identity and can be used to understand how resources are
or should be allocated.
