Web Conferencing Proves Big Security Concern for IT Decision Makers
There have been a great many hacking attacks of late, with a lot of big names ending up on the bad end of a hacker's efforts. This in turn has made a lot of IT decision makers consider where the next big threat to everyday operations and sensitive material will come from. A new study from Omnijoin, Brother International Corporation's Web conferencing division, shows that when IT decision makers start considering threats to the business, one of the first directions considered is Web conferencing.
The Brother study, conducted by Forrester Consulting of 150 IT professionals in both regulated and non-regulated industries, found that 80 percent of respondents were concerned about the exposure of data in the industry, with 51 percent viewing protecting data as “very important.” Web conferencing proved to be a major concern in that vein. So-called “risky meeting behaviors” were also a big problem, as 40 percent of firms have meetings that bring in financial data in some way. A third of firms had meetings involving the sharing of customer or patient data, and about 20 percent had meetings involving trade secrets, making the protection of data during Web conferencing sessions particularly important.
That, in turn, reveals that the leading reason for companies going with on-premises deployments is related to issues of security. Security proved to be “very important” to 74 percent of IT decision makers who set up on-premises deployments. Optimizing performance and keeping a handle on license costs proved to be part of the equation, coming in at number two and number three reasons. 69 percent of respondents had some concern with unauthorized content sharing in meetings, while 38 percent were “very concerned.” A combined total of 64 percent—33 percent concerned and 31 percent very concerned—had a particular problem with unauthorized participants listening in, and almost as many—63 percent total—had some level of concern about Web conferencing participants downloading content.
The problem here is that we're dealing with a very valuable technology that's extremely easy to use. For instance, using Web-based real time communications (WebRTC) as a conferencing tool can be a great way to connect users on nothing more than a Web browser, but with a data channel included for quickly sharing files, it can be somewhat risky. Worse, many common applications require some degree of data sharing; the move to big data tools all but depend on having sufficient data to operate. It's possible to exercise some protective measures here, like keeping unauthorized participants out of conferences, but there will always be some degree of risk. Without that risk, there are too many opportunities lost, and that's a development businesses can ill afford.
There’s a fine line between over-sharing and under-sharing, and finding and straddling that line will likely offer the best results. It's not easy, but protecting information and allowing it to be shared as needed offers some incredible benefits.
In the Wake of Widespread Hacker Attacks, Study Reveals Security Concerns Centering on Web Conferencing
As hackers begin to target attacks for competitive intelligence, 80 percent of IT decision-makers concerned about exposure of sensitive content
BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (February 25, 2015) – OmniJoin, the web conferencing division of Brother International Corporation, today released survey results revealing that firms are concerned with security threats and securing sensitive content during web conferencing. In addition to security, high performance and network capabilities were important factors in IT leaders’ choosing on-premise web conferencing solutions. Forrester Consulting conducted the commissioned study on behalf of Brother in September 2014 and surveyed 150 IT professionals in regulated and non-regulated industries in North America.
Other key findings surrounding security risks during web conferences include:
Employees practice risky meeting behaviors with crucial company data. Nearly 40 percent of firms have meetings that involve financial data; one-third have meetings where employees share private customer or patient information; and approximately one in five have web meetings that involve trade secrets.
Controlling the exposure of sensitive content is a top security concern. Four out of five IT decision-makers consider this important, and 51 percent consider it very important.
Security ranks as top reason for firms in choosing on-premises deployments. Security was very important to 74 percent of IT decision-makers in their choice of web conferencing on-premises. Optimizing performance and controlling license costs are the number two and three reasons.
According to the study, when asked to judge security threats with web conferencing, 69 percent of IT professionals cited concern with employees sharing unauthorized content in meetings, with 38 percent labeling themselves as “very concerned.” Additionally, 64 percent (33% concerned, 31% very concerned) cited unauthorized participants listening in silently to meetings, and 63 percent (25% concerned, 38 % very concerned) cited unauthorized participants downloading content shared in web conferences as concerns.
“As we’ve seen recently, hackers are no longer aiming just at identity and credit card theft, they’re also zeroing in on individual companies, and the competitive intelligence and personal information within their communications,” said Bill Henderson, VP of Marketing at Brother International Corporation. “As nearly every size organization makes web meetings a daily part of their operations, they should look closely at on-premise web conferencing, deployed in their private cloud, to protect not just their data, but also their ideas.”
