  • Last updated on

Beyond its powerful network firewall and VPN technologies, the CloudGen Firewall provides seamless integration with all authentication methods (e.g., Active Directory, RADIUS, LDAP/s, etc.) to facilitate policy configuration based on the actual user and group information and not just IP addresses. User visibility and control is a significant factor for handling network traffic and creating policies. If you do not have an external authentication server available, you can create and maintain a list of local users and groups on the firewall.
