Making Your Data More Secure With a RHUB Web Conferencing Server

April 14th, 2014

Web conferences save businesses millions of dollars per year, but a web conference doesn’t represent such an attractive savings if your confidential company information is stolen. It’s important to ensure that your web conferencing solution is going to provide enough protection to keep your data safe at all times.

An RHUB server represents an excellent security solution. Every RHUB server comes with a default 2048-bit SSL certificate preinstalled. Passwords and meeting IDs are transmitted via SSL. The screen image is protected by RHUB’s proprietary encryption by default, but the server can be reconfigured so that everything is SSL protected.

For even more protection, RHUB servers have a built-in firewall, though we recommend your RHUB server be used in conjunction with your company firewall. Because of its history of security issues, Java has been completely removed.

For transmission security, RHUB uses both SSL and proprietary encryption. Meeting IDs and passwords are SSL encrypted when transmitted over the Internet. Unlike conventional web conferencing, the RHUB server can be set up behind your company firewall, making it much more secure than a hosted service. Internal meetings within the firewall are simplicity itself to set up and totally secure.

DMZ deployment works well for meetings with external users. The RHUB server is set up at the firewall and your client is also behind a firewall. DMZ is available for almost every router, even home routers. A DMZ setup permits both attendees who are behind a firewall and attendees who aren’t to attend a meeting. If you wish, you can easily restrict the meeting to attendees within your network only.

A deployment outside the firewall is also a possibility. In this scenario, the RHUB server is configured between your firewall and the client firewall. This deployment is equivalent in security to hosted services.

The safety of RHUB servers has been tested intensively by banks, government agencies, and defense companies. You can’t find a webinar solution more capable of providing you with security when you really need it. To discuss how our robust protection can benefit you, give us a call at 408-899-2831.
