For various reasons you might want to create a local user in SEP MC (Management Console). For example, an external user that you do not want to add to your AD and this user should be able to consume and create Secured information for an extended period of time perhaps a consultant.
A local user can be used in the same way as an imported user except for windows authentication and EPM. Local users can also be used for Secured eCollaboration Service account, or Secured eMail Gateway service account.
