By default, an on-premise implementation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 leverages Active Directory (Integrated Windows) Authentication to accommodate access by internal users. However, many businesses also require the ability to provide external users with access to the highly sensitive information that is stored in the CRM system and to accommodate this access without having to create Active Directory trusts. Because providing external access to internal CRM resources can also introduce potential security risks from both external and internal sources, in these scenarios, the CRM implementation must be protected by a gateway, such as Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007, which is sensitive to application logic and data and can ensure that internal and external users perform their routine tasks in a secure manner.
