Importing Active Directory Users

PolicyServer maintains a user directory separate from the Active Directory database. This allows PolicyServer absolute security over access to all Endpoint Encryption devices, user rights, and authentication methods.

For information about configuring Active Directory integration, see the Endpoint Encryption Installation and Migration Guide.
