LDAP vs Kerberos

Microsoft has recently announced that it is going to disable LDAP based on the link below.
We configured the AD's windows authentication as the identity source on the vCenter. My understanding is that Windows authentication uses the Kerberos, not the LDAP.  Security is not my strength.
Should we have to change it to AD over LDAPs ?

Does Keberos secure as much as LDAPS?

Kerberos is just an authentication mechanism. It's a way of securely transmitting credentials. LDAPS is a directory protocol used by AD.
