Online security has become an enormous concern for businesses worldwide. That's why more enterprises are embedding password-protected videos into their websites. While YouTube and other free platforms let you create 'unlisted' videos, you need enhanced authentication to stop unauthorized persons from accessing sensitive content.
In this guide, learn how to set up password-protected video sharing for your company and discover Viostream's advanced security features.
Cybercriminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their quest for your most valuable business information. Here are some online security facts that will shock you:
While organizations invest heavily in malware protection and other online security tools, few think about the potential risks of online video. Cybercriminals can access the videos on your website at any time or join your live streams without permission. Once this happens, they could steal any sensitive information in these videos, such as sales information, customer data, or company secrets. It's not just cybercriminals that can cause trouble. 'Zoom bombing,' where an unauthorized person joins a Zoom call, was a common occurrence in 2020. Adding a password to your online videos can prevent these problems.
But it's not just cybercrime that's a concern for organizations like yours. Insider threats also pose a significant safety risk. Current or former employees who have access to your videos can share private information with others, for example. Adding a password to your videos — so only people you trust can access content — proves valuable.
You need an online video platform that hosts your videos and offers authentication methods like those above. Regular video platforms like YouTube just don't offer the security benefits most companies require. When you require viewers to register a new account or confirm their credentials, you increase your security protocols significantly.
By adding authentication to your videos, you can share sensitive information with clients, investors, and partners. This information might include sales targets, profits, revenues, and other financial information you don't want anyone else to know. You can also add authentication to internal communications and increase security when sharing information in your corporate offices.
