What is LDAP?
 
Related topics:
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a networking protocol for querying and modifying directory services. An LDAP directory contains data with similar attributes and organizes data in a directory tree structure. It is considered "lightweight" because it is a reduced version of the X.500 directory standard.
Active Directory (AD) is Microsoft's LDAP-compliant directory service, and is an integral part of the Windows Server architecture. Active Directory is a hierarchical framework of resources (such as printers), services (such as email), and users (user accounts and groups). It allows administrators to assign enterprise-wide policies, deploy programs to many computers, and apply critical updates to an entire organization.
The cloud service integrates with LDAP directories and has been certified to work with Microsoft Active Directory. If you have enterprise information stored in AD, you do not have to enter it into the cloud portal manually.
