In network environments with Microsoft Active Directory it is possible to synchronize users and groups with the protection offered by FlashStart so as to activate granular policies.
For example, you can activate social networks for the group “Marketing users” and block them for the group “Front Office”. At the same time, report management will also grant granularity of service and each department director will be able to evaluate the use of the Internet within his department.
In this way, the network administrator can assign security and navigation policies based on the department and role within the company, as it is by now required everywhere in Enterprise environments.
of native integration
Several companies exploit a centralized server system like MS Active Directory to enable the monitoring of all the objects in the domain, hence users, resources (e.g. printers) and services (e.g. emails), to organize them, control accesses and cyber security settings.
The integration of FlashStart with MS-Active Directory is simple and fast thanks to the installation of a native Windows plug-in, which can synchronize AD objects (passwords and personal data are not synchronized, in full conformity with Privacy regulations).
A local DNS proxy is also available (relay), and can be installed on a virtual machine (it uses very little resources) so as to manage inside and outside DNS traffic and keep a local cache with immediate latency.
