What is Cisco Webex?
Cisco Webex was one of the first video conferencing platforms on the market. Webex formed in 1996, and in 2007, Cisco acquired the platform. Cisco transformed Webex from a platform with potential to one that is now world-renowned for being the most secure all-in-one platform. Cisco Webex is frequently used in the professional world and therefore doesn’t have the frills that a platform like Zoom has.
However, it makes up for this in top-of-the-line security and functionality. Unlike video conferencing platforms like Zoom, which gained most AMU during the pandemic's beginning, Webex already had a strong basis of users pre-pandemic.
Centralization has been rising in the tech channel, and Cisco Webex was ahead of the trend. Webex is one app for everything and everyone - 95% of Fortune 500 companies trust Webex as their video conferencing platform. Webex provides users with calling, meetings, messaging and events for teams of all sizes.
Webex offers locked personal room meetings, password-enforced meeting connections and encrypted cloud recordings. Additionally, it utilizes the Webex lobby feature, where the meeting host controls who can enter a meeting and when. Meeting hosts and admins can give or take away access to meetings at any time from any user and supports seamless end-to-end encryption.
Webex is a proponent of maintaining data privacy across the platform - users are secured through risk-based access policies and see user activities. Devices are secured through forced PIN-lock and remote wipe compromised mobile phones. Cisco Webex secures content through end-to-end encryption for files, messages, and whiteboards. You can also upgrade your security with a pro pack or an updated security pack.
By using an all-in-one platform for your company, you ensure you maintain value in your workplace, regardless of being remote or in-person. With security measures in place to protect the privacy of your company, you can focus on achieving your goals and maintaining momentum. Webex is available by anyone, anywhere, at any time, from the bleachers of a football stadium, to the comfort of your bed, to a beach in Hawaii.
