Cisco Webex for Secure Meetings

The importance of security for online meetings


As a security expert, I don’t often get to write about unified communications but security is important everywhere, with communication and collaboration technologies being no exception. 

Increased Usage

The recent massive uptake in remote working as a result of Covid-19 has driven many new users to platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Cisco Webex. With increased use comes an increased focus on what these technology providers do with your data. In light of recent Zoom security concerns¹, I wanted to share my thoughts on subject. 

Terms and Conditions

People often don’t read the terms and conditions. When we sign up for a service, particularly a world-renowned communications service, we expect that our traffic, data, and meta data will all be kept safe, secure, and treated responsibly. We certainly don’t expect our chosen collaboration platform to be quoted as “a privacy disaster” and “fundamentally corrupt” in the media!²

World Leading Security

Cisco just happens to be the largest cybersecurity vendor in the world. So if you’re looking for a secure, trustworthy, world-leading communication and collaboration platform, Cisco has got you covered. The G20 trusted Cisco to provide the collaboration technology for their recent virtual summit³.

With Cisco Webex, your data is yours and isn’t shared with anybody else. In a world of increasingly tight data regulation and eye-watering fines associated with data losses, you can be confident that your data is stored in region, is encrypted at rest, is encrypted in transit, and only you can access it.
