Webex For Government Goes Above and Beyond
The FedRAMP authorized platform for Webex extends its abilities beyond government compliance. Industry leading security, advanced yet intuitive management, and flexible deployments for calling, meetings and messaging are all built in. This blog describes some of the key features that allow your organization to have better collaboration experiences with better security than any other in the industry.
Consistent experiences across devices and collaboration suppliers
Only the Webex experience provides the same look and feel across multiple communication devices and clients from various suppliers. The Webex App provides the same operation and appearance on your mobile phone as on desktop devices your users may have. Calling, meetings and messaging all have extensive features with seamless interaction between each of these functions. With one button, users can move from messaging to a meeting or phone call. When communicating with external organizations, they have the same experience as someone within your organization. Even your FedRAMP security and compliance are extended to commercial Webex users when they are added to a space. These guests are included without additional licenses and complex management.
Industry leading protection for users, content, devices, and applications
Only Webex provides true end-to-end encryption of messages and files (on by default) and meetings. Customers can choose to even host their encryption keys on-premises for additional control over access. All content is encrypted before being sent and is not susceptible to attacks on the network. Even if a cloud component is compromised, your encrypted data cannot be accessed or stolen. Only approved recipients can decrypt the messages and meeting information. Webex for Government provides additional safeguards for users, devices, content and applications with multifactor authentication, data loss prevention and malware protection. Customers can use the FedRAMP Authorized Cisco Cloudlock as a readymade DLP (Data Loss Prevention) integration.
Richer, more seamless interactions with Webex integrations
Unique from most collaboration solutions, Webex provides the tools to embed messaging and meetings into your work applications. Integrations with Office 365 Hybrid Calendar and ECM (Enterprise Content Management) (file sharing), Experts on Demand, and Google ECM have options to start Webex functions with a single click. You can launch a meeting immediately or set up a meeting in MS Outlook. Webex for government provides many APIs to customize screen size, layout and more.
