WebTitan Active Directory Integration

WebTitan can assign policies to a user, or groups of users, by integrating with your active directory. Both Active Directory and Azure Active Directory are supported in WebTitan.

  • Azure Active Directory

    WebTitan filters users and groups in Azure Active Directory (AD) using DNS Proxy (version 2.06+) and the WebTitan Azure AD Enterprise App. Filtering is supported if using just an on-premise AAD, a fully cloud-based AAD, or a hybrid setup (cloud and on-premise).

    • DNS Proxy is a light, stripped-down hypervisor that facilitates the importing of users and groups from your AAD. If you are using a hybrid setup, DNS Proxy is installed both on-prem and in Azure. If you are in a pure cloud environment, DNS Proxy is added to Azure only and talks directly to WebTitan using Microsoft Graph API.

    • The WebTitan AzureAD Enterprise App is a built-in component of DNS Proxy in Azure and is responsible for synchronizing Azure Active Directory users and groups to the DNS Proxy. The WebTitan AzureAD Enterprise App regularly performs scans of Azure sign-ins to find new user sign-ins.

    • User mappings are sent to DNS Proxy from AAD using Microsoft Graph API.

    See WebTitan AzureAD Enterprise App Guide.

  • Active Directory

    WebTitan integrates with Active Directory on-premise using both DNS Proxy and WebTitan Active Directory Agent (WADA) installed on your network.

    • DNS Proxy is a light, stripped-down hypervisor that facilitates the importing of users and groups from your AD.

    • WADA is a light component that is installed on any domain controller your users authenticate against. WADA talks to the event log and as a user logs in, WADA captures their IP and user mapping and feeds that to DNS Proxy in real-time.

    See DNS Proxy & WADA Install and Setup Guide.
