TitanHQ, the leading provider of cloud-based email and web security solutions to SMBs and MSPs serving the SMB market, has announced the release of a new version of WebTitan Cloud.
WebTitan Cloud is a 100% cloud-based DNS filtering solution for exercising control over the web content that can be accessed at the user and device level. The solution is used to improve cybersecurity by blocking web-based threats and for restricting access to undesirable and inappropriate website content.
WebTitan Cloud 4.16 includes DNS Proxy 2.06, which supports filtering of users in Azure Active Directory, on-premise AD, and directory integration for Active Directory. This new directory service makes it easier for customers to enjoy the benefits of per-user filtering with exceptional ease of management. Current WebTitan Cloud customers will be automatically upgraded to the new version of the solution.
“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.”
Along with the latest release, TitanHQ has announced a new web filtering service for educational institutions that makes it easier to apply filtering controls in BYOD environments and to protect students using school-issued devices.
WebTitan OTG (on-the-go) for Chromebooks
The use of Chromebooks has been steadily increasing, especially in the education sector where they are a cost-effective way for students to access the Internet and online learning services. Students need to be protected online, so restrictions need to be placed on the types of web content that can be accessed.
WebTitan OTG for Chromebooks makes this as easy as possible and allows administrators to ensure students can only access cleaned, filtered internet content, no matter where students go online. The solution can be configured to enforce the use of Safe Search, access to age-inappropriate or undesirable web content can easily be blocked, and administrators have full visibility into locations, web content viewed, and any attempts to access blocked content. Chromebooks can also easily be locked down to prevent any bypassing of filtering controls.
WebTitan OTG for Chromebooks delivers fast and effective user- and device-level web filtering and ensures compliance with state and federal laws such as the U.S. Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
The solution is cost effective for schools to implement, setup and management is quick and easy, and there is no need for any on-premises hardware, proxies or VPNs. Since the solution is DNS-based there is no impact on Internet speed.
