Securing your Video Player

When utilizing an enterprise video platform, one of the top concerns is almost always securing your video player. Ensuring that your videos are secure is a necessity for protecting against unlicensed viewing. 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 – but what exactly does this mean? Read on to explore the security and permissions of such a platform in greater detail, and better understand how to secure your video content.

If you are worried about the security of your online video (and you should be), The KZO Video Suite 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.

The key reason to protect your videos is clearly so that your video content is not stolen. It’s difficult to prevent this completely, but KZO’s Video Suite does a standout job easing the stresses commonly associated with putting video content online. 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!
