Forms based authentication at its best

If your user base is not in Active Directory, and you need them to have access to SharePoint, this is the best utility on the market. It is very flexible and the team at Optimal are always adding improvements.

Product Reviews

Allows you to take user accounts from multiple backends such as multiple backend driectories, such as AD, LDAP, and SQL and merge them together to appear as one directory. Now your users can have a single sign on point in SharePoint. No need to maintain multiple URLs for different user bases, and no need for complicated setups such as ADFS.
Every con has been worked out by the support group at Optimal. They are extremely helpful.
