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 (PKI).
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.
