WebTitan OTG 2 for Windows Release Notes

The introduction of the OTG 2 family of agents saw our WebTitan OTG 1 agent being re-architected as a single-threaded application, meaning that the WebTitan OTG 2 agents are more stable and secure and require less CPU overhead from the user machine. The WebTitan OTG 2 agent family offers several other improvements:

  • You can remotely manage and configure OTG 2 devices after installation from your WebTitan Cloud, using the new device management UI.

  • You can view detailed device information on all your devices in WebTitan Cloud and apply global or individual configuration changes.

  • Reliance on a user's IP address has been removed, with OTG 2 now using an EDNS tag to identify a user and their device.

  • You can now automatically assign a specific policy to new devices during installation.

  • OTG 2 uses a customer-specific install key that improves security during installation. The install key can also be regenerated in the WebTitan UI if necessary.

WebTitan OTG 2 for Windows 2.1

Released: November 2021

WebTitan OTG 2 for Windows 2.1 includes some improvements, but it is primarily a bug fix release to strengthen and enhance the product.

What has been improved?

  • Improvements have been made on the client side to limit instances of a "blocked" status intermittently occurring. Further improvements are planned in later releases.

  • Resolved an issue causing IPv6 addresses to be stored incorrectly instead of reverting to the correct value.

  • An issue where a user was not being created on WebTitan Cloud following OTG 2 install has been resolved.
