Is it possible to use the Secure Gateway for on-premise LDAP?

According to the API Connect for Bluemix documentation, for the Bluemix Public

Creating an LDAP registry

“To be accessible by IBM® API Connect for Bluemix™, any LDAP registry that you use must be visible on the internet, it must not be accessible only from within your corporate intranet.”

Is it not possible to use the Secure Gateway to access an on-premise LDAP server, to be used in API Connect user and API authentication? Making the LDAP registry visible on the internet would seem to be against security best practices. Is there any secure alternative?
