OmniJoin™ Web and Video Conferencing is a business-grade, secure online meeting
service. All web, VoIP, and video conferencing data is transmitted over encrypted
OmniJoin™ conferencing was designed for security conscious customers, IT policy
compliance, and multi-office networks. For more information about our security features,
please read the material below or
Contact Us to schedule a Q&A session.
Business-Grade Online Meetings
- OmniJoin™ cloud-based resources are located in secure facilities with restricted
- End-to-end encryption provides transmission security and all online meeting Hosts
- All OmniJoin™ software and online services use signed code with a third-party
certificate for all downloadable software components
- Additional access, user, and feature controls are provided in the OmniJoin™
administrative console such as requiring meeting passwords, disabling remote control,
Our cloud-based online service only allows secure connections, and it is constantly
monitored. If a secure conference connection cannot be established,
the connection fails. This is a major advantage over traditional, hardware-based
video conferencing installations whose configuration settings can be changed by
remote employees without system monitoring, allowing sensitive information to be
sent unprotected over the internet.
The Internet community-at-large has established industry standards for secure
communications. OmniJoin™ conferencing observes the same SSL3/TLS
standards used by e-commerce, online retailers, and banks for secure transmission
of passwords, credit cards, and your sensitive data. Unlike some conferencing solution
providers that manage their own keys, OmniJoin™ secure connections are established
in the industry standard manner using third-party certificates and public key infrastructure
OmniJoin™ conferencing transmits all live sharing, voice over the Internet
(VoIP), and video over secure, encrypted connections. This is a marked
improvement over some solutions that encrypt live sharing, but send VoIP and video
data over separate, unencrypted protocols.
To verify you are in a secure video conferencing session, look for “https:”
in your conference URL, or the padlock symbol in the OmniJoin™ application
(at lower right, by your Connection Status).
Telephone audio is not encrypted. Customers who elect to use OmniJoin™ telephone
audio features should note that VoIP audio is encrypted, but telephone audio is
sent over the publicly switched telephone network (PSTN). Telephone audio is not
encrypted. Customers that require a higher level of security for telephone audio
features should Contact Us regarding dial-out telephone plans with logging.
Online Meeting Passwords & Host Controls
Online meeting hosts can select conference passwords, and make them required for
conference room entry. In addition to password authentication and other technical
measures, conference hosts can control all video, and personally verify each meeting
attendee by sight. The host can even expel anyone at any time.
The meeting host can select passwords meeting-wide (typical); or be more specific,
and set separate passwords for the host, presenters, and participants. The latter
is useful for more formal meetings such as webinars where there are multiple presenters
and a large number of participants.
IT Security Policy, Firewall & Proxy Compliance
OmniJoin™ conferencing uses industry standard ports 80 and 443 for web services
and provides proxy and firewall traversal in accordance with most IT security policies.
All OmniJoin™ conference connections are initiated by the conference user
going out their firewall. The service does not attempt
any inbound connections. OmniJoin™ conferencing operates over secure TCP/IP
connections, via the physical, NAT, and proxy routing specified by each user's respective
OmniJoin™ conferencing supports all leading standards for proxy connections
such as PAC, WPAD, and port/protocol selection, plus many vendor specific implementations
(e.g., Microsoft® ISA Server) providing high connection success rates for most users.
No Unattended Remote Access Features
In scenarios where OmniJoin™ remote control features may be used — e.g.,
with live desktop, application and region sharing — the user is always prompted
with a dialog box requesting remote control. In addition, the user is offered a
quick keyboard bail-out hot key that appears on their screen during the entire remote
control session. OmniJoin™ features were designed for live conferencing; there
are no unattended remote access and no unattended remote control features. For customers
with IT policies that require it, OmniJoin™ remote control features can be
disabled via the admin console.
