2. Shared

WebTitan Cloud for WiFi is a multi-tenented platform. You can create new customers and accounts easily and manage any number of locations from one account. You can also delegate administration to the customer so that they can dictate the policy of what they want their guests to be able to see. This can be set up in minutes and is all managed from an intuitive web based interface. No local software installs required.

3. Simplified

WebTitan Cloud simplifies WiFi security management. It takes care of all the complexities of content filtering and security while presenting your customers with a logical interface that requires no training.

4. Standardized

Our multiple API's allows integration with your billing, auto provisioning or monitoring system. Being able to standardise across these systems provides freedom and simplicity.

5. Secure

WebTitan Cloud for WiFi allows the administrator to set instant alerts in order to discover who is trying to view restricted content. They can  find out exactly what content customers are accessing via your WiFi network. Policies can be created per location preventing users from accessing unwanted content and blocking malicious websites.

WebTitan Cloud is controlled centrally in a secure environment away from the location being filtered which means it cannot be accessed or manipulated by users on the guest network. Content is filtered as soon as the Guest connects limiting the scope for Guests to be able to access malware, malicious or in appropriate content. The platform can support thousands of accounts, each with an administrator with access only to controls for their own account.
