Active Directory/LDAP authentication/integration (SSO)

    I recommend the following:Customer installs an service on any windows member server. It makes an outbound connection to your data center on so it can get out firewalls (using common port like 443 which is allowed). Your servers use this persistent connection to request authentication in real time. It would use a user account with read-only permissions. You can also use this to read other info in active directory like department, office location, etc.
    What problem will this feature solve?:
