Install the Data Enricher on a Windows Server that is connected to the Active Directory and DNS servers within your corporate intranet.
The Data Enricher gets the following information from your servers:
- User: Distinguished Name, Name, Full name, Department, and Job title from Active Directory.
- Destination: FQDN from reverse DNS lookup.
These data are similar to the data retrieved by the Engine in an on-premises setup.
