Cisco has announced key Webex enhancements to help, including: industry-leading security and compliance capabilities, intelligent and actionable insights to deliver consistent user experiences, and an integration with Box.
Additionally, the integration of Epic for healthcare will give patients choices for engaging with providers key to their wellness. As a long-time market leader, Webex continues to support the changing needs of our customers.
In April, Webex supported half a billion meeting participants who generated 25 billion meeting minutes – more than triple the average volume.
VP and GM, Cisco’s Collaboration Group, Javed Khan said, “Keeping employees, heads of state, healthcare providers and many more securely connected and productive is at the heart of what we do. Even before the pandemic, Cisco was one of the world’s largest collaboration providers, supporting nearly half the world’s video conferencing.
“Now we’re supporting 3X the normal volumes. We are proud we could be there for our customers when they needed us most, and we will continue to be there moving forward as we navigate through these times.”
Webex has become a lifeline for hospitals, federal governments, higher education, and businesses big and small. To stay ahead of demand and continue to deliver the quality our users expect, we’ve invested in incredible amounts of global capacity; in fact, we are now running the Webex platform at 3X the previous capacity.
– More security to ensure connectivity, high security and productivity
As the world’s largest enterprise security company, Cisco is committed to security, privacy and transparency – it’s why Cisco Collaboration is trusted by 95% of the Fortune 500.
Building upon the security capabilities designed into the Webex platform, we’ve now extended data loss prevention (DLP) retention, Legal Hold and eDiscovery to Webex Meetings. This gives an unprecedented level of security and protection for all meeting content – recordings, transcriptions, action items and highlights. This is yet another industry-first security offering for Webex Meetings. We are also expanding our end-to-end encryption options to include AES 256 Bit encryption with GCM mode, providing increased protection for meeting data and resistance against tampering.
