ID Manager
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' 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.
