Why RHUB Web Conferencing Servers Are So Safe

February 12th, 2015

Remote control can significantly increase the efficiency and productivity of the companies, but these types of technologies that involve remote access may have some serious disadvantages as well. According to some studies conducted in the past couple of years, remote control and remote access have been named as the most common ways for the hackers to breach the security. One study showed that almost fifty percent of all the computer security breaches were done by using software for remote access control. Based on that news, many people wonder why RHUB web conferencing servers are so safe and what makes them so good in preventing security breaches.

We all are aware of the fact as the security is good as its weakest link. Hosted conference services are providing very little, if any security. Anyone that has access to a password and meeting identification information can open up the meetings. That leaves a huge security gap, so the hackers may take an advantage of this and attack the system easily. The security can be very easily and quickly compromised just by reading someone`s e-mail or accessing their calendar.

In comparison, the RHUB web conferencing servers can establish a virtual VPN network between the host and the participants. By doing this, it limits the range of participants to those with internal address and location, or with specific IP addresses.  Great thing about RHUB web conferencing servers is that they are specially designed to work together with your internal security servers, such as firewalls and routers or any other devices for security which are implemented by your company. Because of that, RHUB web conferencing servers can provide a very efficient and wide security by limiting the attendance to only authorized locations and participants.

Usage of powerful SSL encryption is primary for maintaining transmission security. You can be calm and relaxed, by knowing that the RHUB web conferencing servers are using the strongest SSL encryption together with proprietary encryption. The user passwords, as well as meeting IDs and the meeting transmissions are completely safe and encrypted.

The most effective way for protection against the breaches in security is to use an on-premise solution by which the web meetings will be protected by the firewall. RHUB web conferencing servers, as well as the remote servers are specially designed to provide an affordable and efficient security.

The three most common ways in which RHUB web conferencing servers are working are: behind the firewall, outside the firewall and DMZ. Behind the firewall means it is being restricted only to internal meetings, outside firewall means it is restricted to external meetings, while DMZ is designed both for external and internal meetings. DMZ deployment is very flexible and is available on all of the routers. In all of these options, strong security measures are constantly offered.

RHUB web conferencing servers are very safe because anyone that tries to access the system and is located outside of the firewall will be immediately rejected by the server.

3 Main Features To RHUB Web Conferencing Solutions

January 1st, 2015

RHUB Communications Inc. is one of the most popular web conferencing and videoconferencing systems in the world. They are offering different types of conferencing solutions. The RHUB server is known for its flexibility and outstanding value and it is characterized by 6 real time collaborations and applications in one server – web conferencing, webinars, remote access, remote support, audio conferencing and video conferencing. One of the main reasons why RHUB is so popular is the fact that users can start their webinar or interactive meeting with only few clicks. The interface is user friendly and even those who don’t have experience in this field will understand how this server works in a matter of minutes. In addition, they can always use the guide provided by RHUB. As we have mentioned before RHUB 6-in-1 server comes with many features and each of the applications has independent features. We will now focus on the 3 main features to RHUB Web Conferencing solutions.

1. RHUB doesn’t require any kind of software

There are many web conferencing solutions which require downloading special software in order to watch the webinar/seminar. This is not the case with RHUB web conferencing solution. If you have made a plan and prepared a seminar you should start it. Your invited attendees can join your seminar in a matter of seconds. They don’t need to download any kind of software if they want to participate on the seminar. What makes RHUB even better is that attendees can use any platform to join the seminar – PC, Mac, Unix, Linux, iPhone or iPad. They will get full access to all the features no matter what platform they use. In other words, this means a guaranteed attendance.

2. RHUB allows hosts to collect emails

One of the main reasons why people decide to host free seminars is the chance to build a list of potential clients/customers. In this way they can significantly improve their brand’s awareness and eventually increase sales. With the help of RHUB, the host of the meeting can (they don’t have to) require information from attendees before they join the meeting. Of course, by information we mean email. Once the host requests a meeting report they will get the email addresses of all attendees. Those who know how to use an email list in the right way will certainly find this feature very useful.

3. Privacy protection

Web conferencing through RHUB is known for another thing – safety and security. The creators of this server have implemented the latest technology in this field. But what makes RHUB server even better is the real-time privacy protection feature. In case an application accidentally opens over the application that is shared at that moment the meeting session will be paused until the host removes it from the area that is visible to the attendees. This is an excellent protection in cases of such accidents or even in cases of viruses and malware.

Remember that these are only some of the features that RHUB Web Conferencing has to offer.

How Collaboration Technology Can Help Your Business

October 11th, 2013

Change Management refers to a systematic method for assimilating change within an organization. Change management also assists with transitions for individuals on a personal level, as part of the  overall, changing collective. Change managers, then, are those who oversee and guide this process. They are essential for helping an organization meet its transitional goals. And with the wonders of collaboration technology, change managers can be more effective in their roles, because it’s easier to communicate with various members of an organization, regardless of whether they’re scattered across a six-acre business complex or across the country.

The position of change manager is merely one example of a job that can be enhanced and empowered by collaboration technology. For the balance of this article, we’ll enumerate a few more ways that collaboration technology can make your life easier.

How Collaboration Technology Is Employed
First of all, collaboration tools enable you to change the way documents and media are updated and shared. This ease of use among team members fosters better communication and collaboration. And obviously, for collaboration to be successful, communication within the group must be successful. In order for this to occur, then the various departments in the organization need to be able to work together — conveniently. And convenience is a great strength of collaborative tools. So, thanks to the convenience and ease of frequent interpersonal connections via online collaboration, project details like assignments or problems can be discussed immediately.

Some Components of Collaboration
Collaboration consists of communication, conferencing and coordination.  Communication is the exchange of information by using the following familiar methods: instant messaging, texting, e-mailing or telephoning. Although this component is still interactive, it relies on auditory or written correspondence.

Conferencing builds upon communication by adding a visual enhancement to your cooperative work. Through slides and video, your attendees can also interact visually. The old adage, “A picture paints a thousand words,” still holds true, so employing audiovisual aspects strengthens your collaborative efforts, helping you to ultimately communicate more clearly.

Coordination is basically when the individual team members complete their portions of the project independently and then bring their progress back to the proverbial table to assess the next steps of the overall, shared goal.

The Collaboration Solution for You!
RHUB specializes in delivering a simple and secure solution for online collaboration. In fact, our company’s name — RHUB — is an amalgam of the phrase “real-time collaboration hub.”

RHUB has a 6-in-1 Web conferencing solution that’s actually an appliance, as opposed to a hosted or software solution. Software solutions are costly and aren’t as user friendly at the outset. Hosted solutions are not secure. But the RHUB appliance works from behind your firewall — not outside of it — so it’s sleep-at-night secure. And the RHUB appliance is easy to use, as well.

The RHUB appliance gives you flexibility and value by combining six real-time collaboration methods into one appliance.

1. Web conferencing — RHUB’s Web conferencing enables you to give sales presentations, trainings, product demonstrations, and it allows you to collaborate interactively with your attendees.

2. Remote support — RHUB’s remote support capability gives you remote control of an attendee’s computer, regardless of whether that person is a PC or Mac user. It allows you to remote reboot, and you can remotely log out and log in again as a different user.

3. Audio conferencing —RHUB brings you VoIP-based audio conferencing, as well as free landline audio conferencing services.

4. Video conferencing — RHUB also gives you multi-point, Webcam-based video conferencing. If you use your HD Webcam to present video, RHUB’s system will deliver your video at photo-level quality and even in true color with 100 percent accuracy.

5. Remote Access — RHUB’s appliance also gives you the ability to access your office or home PCs from anywhere, anytime.

6. Webinar — RHUB also enables you to provide online seminars without having to download anything for your view-only attendees.

So, in conclusion, if you’d like to empower your business with the wonders of collaboration technology, RHUB would love to help you. Learn more from our Web site: RHUB.

Don’t Be Afraid! “Universal Attendance” Is Guaranteed

October 9th, 2013

Since October is here and jack-o’-lanterns
are starting to adorn neighborhood
porches. RHUB has two scary stories for
you from the world of Web conferencing.
Have either of the following nightmarish
scenarios ever happened to you?

Scary Story 1:
You have a great new
product line that you’re
genuinely excited about
releasing. You’ve developed it for months, and the time has finally come to present it to the board and to other key investors. And since your major contacts are all remotely located, you decide the best way to pitch your product is during a big Webcast event. All these busy people are finally confirmed and planning to attend.

But it’s time to begin and your attendance numbers are very low. Worse yet — your primary investors aren’t present. What happened?

They actually tried to show up, but they were unable to join your live event Webcast because some of their computers were locked down under the protection of their corporate I.T. policies, which have prevented them from installing your Webcasting software. And others were not permitted to attend because of similar firewall and server blockages. Heartbreaking. Or what about this terrifying scenario?

Scary Story 2:
Something has gone wrong with your biggest client’s account. Time is of the essence. You’re absolutely positive that you can clear up the misunderstanding and right the ship again, if you can just coordinate a quick video Webcast with the client and your sales team. No problem. You should be able to save your top account and have everything resolved before dinner time.

Your live Webcast has been scheduled. The client is giving you a chance to make things right. Your nervous sales team is connected with you … but your V.I.P. client never shows. But she tried! What happened? Was it an anti-virus or anti-spy software blockage? Was she running an unsupported platform, like Mac, Linux or Unix? Or was it something like a wrong (or missing) Java Virtual Machine or Flash installation? Who knows? In fact, you’ll never know … because that client is gone forever.

RHUB: A Happy Ending
In a competitive business world, these types of horror stories are indeed scary, and unfortunately, true. But never fear — RHUB is here with the first Web conferencing solution that’s truly capable of guaranteeing what we call “universal attendance,” which means everybody can attend.

That’s right! For your view-only attendees, there is nothing to download, which means that no firewalls or group policies or anti-virus protection can prevent your intended attendees from joining your meetings. We can literally guarantee the attendance!

And by the way, when your attendees join an RHUB Web conference production, it is fast. It takes fewer than five seconds — not minutes — to join a meeting.

Another reason we call it “universal attendance” is because your attendees can join a meeting from any operating system, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix, etc., as well as any PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or Android device with a browser.

So, with 100 percent attendance guaranteed, the only things in the cold outside your meeting doors this fall will be trick-or-treaters, not your would-be attendees. RHUB invites you to let go of tricky Web conferencing solutions and treat yourself to the sweet guarantee of universal attendance. Visit our Web site to learn more: RHUB.

A Few Considerations for Choosing an Effective Web Conferencing Solution.

September 24th, 2013

The lion’s share of Web conferencing users are currently relying on hosted services for their Webcasting solutions, primarily because they aren’t aware that better options exist. But first, let’s give credit where credit’s due, hosted services are generally easy to deploy, and they come in handy when you need to conduct a live broadcast on-the-go, while you’re away from the office.

Why There’s a Better Way Than Hosted Services

But hosted solutions aren’t nearly as secure as the two on-premise alternatives described below. One reason for this is because hosted services are deployed over the Internet, which leaves your company’s video Webcast content susceptible to the wiles of the Internet underworld. Now, we don’t mean to sound like alarmists, but just consider the logic of the following question: If a safer solution exists for sharing your Web conferences, wouldn’t you prefer to use that option over something less secure? Naturally.

Plus, let’s not forget that hosted solutions cost over time. As long as you’re subscribed to such a service, then you’re going to continue paying its ongoing costs. This sort of perpetual expense might not be a concern for every company, but we suspect that every smart business weighs the difference between upfront costs versus long-term service charges. Without question, the initial investment of an on-premise solution is much more cost-effective over time.

On-Premise Solutions: Better Security for a Better Price

On-premise software or an on-premise appliance both give you much more security than a hosted service. These on-premise options operate behind client-company firewalls, giving you another barrier of protection. So, what we’re talking about here is the difference between “private clouds,” which exist internally within a company, and “public clouds” or the wild and wonderful World Wide Web.

Here at RHUB, it’s no secret that we believe on-premise software is a step in the right direction, but we still believe the best option for Web conferencing is an on-premise appliance, which is what we offer with our RHUB 6-in-1 Web Conferencing Appliance. In just one appliance, your company gets Web conferencing, remote support, audio conferencing, video conferencing, remote access and Webinar capabilities. Why do we prefer an on-premise application over on-premise software? RHUB feels that the two biggest problems with on-premise software are its high upfront cost, and it is notoriously difficult to deploy.

RHUB Believes in Making Your Life Easier

Who said Webcast technologies can’t be easy? Why shouldn’t your business Webcasts be simple? RHUB believes you should save your time and energy for more pertinent “heavy lifting,” such as landing that big account or having smooth-sailing, live Webcast face-time with your family while you’re away on business. You’re far too busy — and your time is too valuable — to be burdened with a steep learning curve.

These are solely considerations of your own time, but what about the productivity of your overall organization? In 2010, a study called “The Work Design Collaborative” found that the time-consuming learning curve for implementing new technological programs took most organizations between 15 to 18 months before they began to see their productivity return. In today’s hungry business climate, that’s far too long to be out-of-commission. Obviously, an easy-to-use alternative (such as RHUB’s 6-in-1 appliance) can significantly reduce this learning curve and ease the burdens on your company’s time and money.

The Name You’ll Remember (Precisely Because You’re Not Forced to Hear It in Every Meeting)

Does it make sense for your company to pay money to create a Webcast recording only to hear the intrusive, name-dropping
advertisements of the Web conferencing service provider? It doesn’t make sense to RHUB, either. We enable you to brand your meetings with the name of your organization — not ours.

So, if you’re tired of paying relentless service charges or wrestling with a less secure system that’s difficult to use, then your friends at RHUB welcome you to prowl on over to our Web site to learn more: RHUB
