A LDAP connection for the user management would be fine. To manage an AD security group is much easier as to manage seperat accounts with different passwords. Our Barracuda appliances are not in the Barracuda cloud (Firmware 6.0.05) and it is a pain to manage the user accounts for each appliance. Also from the security aspect it would be much better to use LDAP, because of password changes etc.

 

Single-Sign-On could be also interesting in the framework of LDAP.

This answer referrers to the cloud system. As written before - we do not cloud. Exposing company internal ldap sytems to the public is anyway a less recommended option (why it become more and more popular - ignoring security best preactices). Please referrer your answer to the local controlled systems too.

Thanks.
