Options for LDAP authentication
When implementing Mimecast services for the first time, connecting your organization's infrastructure to Mimecast through LDAP authentication will enable you to securely automate the management of Mimecast users and groups using your company directory.
Mimecast Directory Sync provides LDAP authentication for email clients such as Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Outlook, and enables you to eliminate the administrative overhead of managing Mimecast users and groups manually. LDAP integration also offers additional benefits, including future enablement and minimizing the administrative burden of configuring and maintaining Mimecast services.
With the Directory Sync tool in Mimecast, you have a number of options for LDAP authentication with your on-premises email environment.
Before beginning LDAP authentication, there are several steps you may need to consider.
Mimecast is designed for self-service troubleshooting to give IT teams more control and to speed resolution of issues.
