Video conference with security you can trust

Why is security important for Cisco Webex video conferencing?

Here at Cisco Webex, we believe in making technology and software that helps people around the world collaborate better, faster, and smarter than ever before. All without sacrificing your confidence in our security. Especially because an unsecured video conferencing solution not only opens up the possibility to meetings being listened in on, it could also indicate vulnerability of a compromised network. Both of which are extremely risky, no matter your business size, industry, or sector. Today, the power of video conferencing is incredible. It transforms meeting experiences and allows people to meet more productively, but if not developed strategically and with security at the forefront, it can put you at risk to privacy issues.

How does Cisco prioritize security strategy?

Our strategy at Cisco Webex prioritizes security in our design, development, deployment, and in the maintenance of its networks, platforms, and applications. When you choose Cisco Webex as your video conferencing and collaboration tool, we want you to be confident in your choice for all your business needs. Security shouldn’t be a concern before a meeting, during a meeting, and especially after a meeting.

What type of security does Cisco Webex offer?

To all of our customers, we offer the highest level of security, including: • SOC-2 Type 2 • ISO 27001 • FedRAMP compliant • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant • and end-to-end encryption But what does this actually all mean? It means that the second you share a document or send a message to someone else via Cisco Webex, your data becomes and remains encrypted from your device to your recipients’. Any data sent/received comes with a key and you own the key to all your encrypted data. You can put this key in your data center, and with it, you are guaranteed total security, control, and access to it at all times. Cisco Webex is the ONLY vendor that offers this end-to-end encryption. In addition, we have internal teams dedicated to managing, investigating, and publicly reporting on security vulnerability information related to Cisco products and networks. Examples include the Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) and the Cisco Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT).

Where can I find more information on Webex security?
