When choosing a secure video conferencing software that works for your team, there are several things that need to be considered. One of those is the security features the software can offer you, and without knowing what they can do – you risk leaving your systems open to a data breach.

This is why choosing the correct video conferencing software for your team is of the utmost importance.

In this article, we will be going over 4 of the most secured video conferencing software that you can find on the market.

Livestorm

Livestorm is a browser-based, high-end, and extremely secure video conferencing tool that’s super simple to use. All it requires is for you to have a link in order to join the call or event making it great for meetings done at the last minute.

Security Features:

Livestorm gives its users a private security portal that they can use to download their documents or view all the security details for the video engagement platform. It also offers multiple backups for quick data recovery or you can erase data upon request.

Livestorm is equipped with MFA and SSO authentication which is the latest encryption standard for audio and video, as well as IDS and IPS for malware prevention and data protection.

By using Livestorm you have access to Livestorm’s Qualys SSL Labs report.

Other Key Features:

·        Live Polls

·        Upvote Questions

·        Breakout Rooms

·        Emoji Reactions

·        Miro Virtual WhiteBoard

·        Multimedia sharing

·        Unlimited event recordings and replays

·        Track your engagement

Price:

While Livestorm offers all of its features on its free plan, there is a Premium Plan that is $99/month per host which is billed annually.

Google Meet

Security Features:

Just like Livestorm, Google meets also offers its users exceptional security features like MFA and SSO authentication, a 2-step verification process, malware prevention, a transparent security program, and data protection.

Google Meet is also regulatory compliant and has third-party certifications including ISO 27001 and SOC 2.

Other Key Features:

·        Easy integration into Google Calendar since it is part of Google’s ecosystem

·        Chat Panel – for sharing links

·        Digital whiteboard

Unfortunately, Google Meets doesn’t offer as many other features as Livestorm and it also lacks promotion and organization features making this video conferencing tool more suited to small teams that only require the basics.

Price:

Google Workshop offers a very popular Business plan which is $12/month per user.

Microsoft Teams

Security Features:

Just like Livestorm and Google Meets, Microsoft Teams has a highly secure platform that uses SSO authentication, data encryption at resting and in transit, while having third-party security certificates such as ISO 27001.

Other Key Features:

Microsoft Teams is fully integrated into Microsoft Office like Word or Excel making it an excellent choice if your business already uses Microsoft on a day-to-day basis. While it doesn’t offer all of its features and functionality with its browser base or free plan, it is still a very powerful tool to use.

Price:

$12.50/ month per user

GoRemote

GoRemote secures all video/voice calls with end-to-end encryption. The app also allows you to set a password to lock it. So even if your phone or tablet gets lost or stolen your messages and attachments will not be seen by any unauthorized party.

In addition to the industry-leading encryption, GoRemote also provides group chats as well as the sending of files and photos in addition to text, so you’re going to be pretty well covered no matter what your needs. Furthermore, users can quickly share their screens during a meeting.  Also, client applications are available on all major mobile and desktop platforms.

With these apps, you can rest assured that none of your video calls would be linked on the internet and cause unnecessary havoc.
