Your opinion about a corporate proxy server to reach the magazine's website from everywhere

Can’t comment on what’s best for your company.

If you plan to do what you described, sounds like a reasonable plan, though
many others exist.

You can do this using nginx + vouch to hook into an idp like Okta, and
introduce an identity layer into your connection to secure authentication
and authorization up.

Ldap over internet is a horrible idea.

Good luck,
