Securing Internal Video Content 101

Your company likely has video content you’d prefer to keep confidential. For instance, what if your in-house training videos for sales reps get leaked to one of your competitors? They could steal your sales strategy and/or company secrets. So, how do you ensure that videos intended to help your company don’t instead end of hurting you? How do you keep your videos secure?

Private Settings

If your company uses YouTube for internal videos, be sure to keep them internal by using the privacy settings. “Public” videos are open to everyone to view—and search engines to find. If you set internal videos to “private” they are not searchable and are only visible to those they have been invited via email to view. You can invite up to 50 people to watch. Furthermore, “unlisted” videos are hidden from search engines and not listed on your channel; they are only visible to those that have the specific URL, similar to private setting but not requiring a YouTube log in.

Think of it as “privacy” light. And do not use this option if security is your highest priority or the video contains proprietary information because if the link is shared then whoever receives it can view the content as long as they have the URL.

With this in mind, larger companies should implement a secure enterprise video platform with state-of-the-art security options. A secure video player means content owners can select the level of permissions for groups, the level of user authentication, and secure the delivery of the video stream. KZO’s Video Suite provides a flexible, secure enterprise video platform that can easily secure your video content via a number of ways, including:

User Authentication

You can select the level of user authentication for each video, from public viewing to highly secured video content. The video stream can be securely delivered to protect against unlicensed viewing.

Security and Permissions

KZO enables you to set controls so that you can keep track of who is viewing your content and any and all discussions and comments. With Access Control Lists, you can determine degrees of administrative privileges, content creation rights, and viewer access. Permission can be granted per individual or group to accommodate many business units within the same enterprise that have video needs. You have the option of requesting information about the viewer before they are given access to your content. If simply knowing a little bit about each individual that accesses your platform doesn’t suffice, add another level of security by assigning approved groups and users into communities of interest. Not only does this ensure that your information is distributed appropriately, but this feature also makes it easier for moderators to organize and control permissions and requirements.

Simplify and Secure with External Authentication

If you don’t need yet another set of usernames and passwords to keep track of, groups and users can be aligned with your company’s LDAP, Active Directory, and Single Sign-On Authentication Systems.

Deliver Your Content over the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

KZO streams your video content over the SSL. This way, your video content is encrypted and will remain secure. This important step ensures that no one can “spy” or listen in on your videos.

Stream Your Video

By choosing to stream your video with KZO, you can trust that your video cannot be downloaded and that your content will only reach its intended user or group. Progressive download, the alternative to streaming, means that as someone is viewing your video (delivered to them over HTTP), that video is downloaded locally onto the viewer’s computer. If you want to remain the owner of your content, stream your video and you won’t lose ownership.

Secure video enables you to provide high-quality content to employees and a select external audience with without worrying about it falling into the wrong hands. Be protected, be confident, and continue posting bold, compelling video content of your very own.

Now that you know how to secure your video, learn how to make that powerful video!
