WebTitan OTG (on-the-go) for Chromebooks Now Available from TitanHQ

TitanHQ has released a new version of its award-winning DNS filtering solution – WebTitan Cloud. WebTitan Cloud is a 100% cloud-based cybersecurity solution that allows customers to block web-based threats, exercise control over Internet access, and gain full visibility into the online activities of users.

The latest release, WebTitan Cloud 4.16, includes DNS Proxy 2.06, which supports filtering of users in Azure Active Directory, as well as directory integration for Active Directory and on-premise AD. TitanHQ has also announced that WebTitan Cloud has been expanded to provide protection for Chromebooks.

The new Chromebook filtering service – WebTitan OTG (on-the-go) for Chromebooks – makes it easy for educational institutions to apply filtering controls for BYOD and protect students using school-issued devices.

“This new release comes after an expansive first quarter. The launch of WebTitan Cloud 4.16 brings phenomenal new security features to our customers,” Said TitanHQ CEO, Ronan Kavanagh. “After experiencing significant growth in 2020, TitanHQ expects these product enhancements and new features to make 2021 another record-breaking year.”

WebTitan OTG (on-the-go) for Chromebooks

Chromebook use has been increasing steadily, especially in the education sector. Chromebooks are a cost-effective way for students to access the Internet and online learning services, but controls need to be implemented to comply with state and federal laws such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).

WebTitan OTG for Chromebooks allows administrators to ensure students can only access cleaned, filtered internet content in the classroom and at home. The solution can be used to enforce Safe Search, block access to age-inappropriate or undesirable web content, and Chromebooks can be locked down to prevent circumvention of filtering controls. Administrators also have access to on-demand reports of internet access and can view locations, content accessed, attempts made to view restricted content, including real-time views of web activity.
