Microsoft will Deny Plain LDAP Connections to AD Beginning March 2020

Starting in March 2020, Microsoft will release an update which includes hardening measures for LDAP binding. Read the full advisory here: https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/security-guidance/advisory/ADV190023 .

This affects all of us who still use plain LDAP to perform queries in Active Directory. Starting in March we will be forced to use secure LDAP binding, because AD will deny plain LDAP connections. This may have a significant impact on those NetEye and EriZone Systems that use LDAP as an authentication or sync source.

As a definitive solution, you need to switch to LDAPS, which is supported by all versions of NetEye and by EriZone.

Please consult your product’s user guide, or contact our support service to obtain more specific help about this matter.
