Currently available for Chromebooks, Windows and Mac, the WebTitan OTG 2 family of agents sees the existing WebTitan OTG 1 agent being re-architected as a single-threaded application, giving more stability and security and requiring less CPU overhead from the user machine. However, this re-architecture means that there is no direct upgrade path from WebTitan OTG 1 to WebTitan OTG 2.
WebTitan OTG 1 is still supported and you can continue to use it, however, if you want to move your devices to WebTitan OTG 2 you will need to follow the guidelines below.
The WebTitan OTG 2 agent family offers other improvements:
You can remotely manage and configure OTG 2 devices after installation from your WebTitan Cloud, using the 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 using an EDNS tag to identify a user and their device.
You can 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.
