Polycom and McAfee announced a partnership to deliver security solutions to address security and governance requirements for videoconferencing. This approach goes beyond simply integrating stored video into document-retention strategies, and instead plans to bring active security monitoring to Polycom video and telepresence solutions. Thanks to television series like “24,” we’re all familiar with the idea of a secure videoconference for military or government applications, but the same concerns driving demand for secure video in government are also making the leap into the business world. CEOs discussing a pending acquisition or new product launch want the security of knowing their video sessions are secure from prying eyes. Meanwhile, IT operational managers will increasingly want to protect their video applications from attack. Video security in the enterprise is still a nascent space. Our research shows UC architects are still struggling with demands for encryption, governance and retention of stored communications, as well as methods for authenticating end-users. I expect that protection against external attacks will emerge quickly as an additional security concern—especially as demand grows for extranet collaboration.
