4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Secure Video Sharing

We live in a day and age where virtual sharing is most common. Videos are a common means of communication, and naturally, people are more concerned about their privacy than ever before.

When a business uses rich graphical video content as a means of communication and for sales and marketing efforts, it naturally concerns businesses about the safety and security for their data and information, especially when the employees are putting their face out there with personalized videos!

Secure video hosting and secure video sharing are the need of the hour. Make sure you are sharing the right video with the right people.

1. Accidental Share

Your employees might accidentally share something meant to be shared internally with people outside the company, breaching information security.  

Secure video sharing or password-protected video sharing is needed to keep control over the internal communication videos. This way, you can better secure your videos to ensure that only the people/teams you want have access to them and nobody else!

2. Safe From Hacking

With remote selling catching up like wildfire, sales reps use personalized videos to pitch and communicate with prospects across the world.

In such a case, sharing a video securely with prospects without any hindrances of being hacked or being accidentally distributed around makes more sense.

After all, it's a personalized pitch, and you want it to be viewed only by your prospect for whom you made the pitch.

3. Quick Access With No Technical Problems

Get a secure video sharing platform like Videoform built from the ground up with security in mind.

Not only will this ensure your videos are secure, but it also ensures that they can be accessed quickly and efficiently without any technical problems getting in the way of the viewer's experience.

You'll have better control over how your videos look and what they're titled to help you attract the right audience.

4. Protect Product Demo Videos

When you record a product demo or a service demo video, you might want to protect the information about your product or services key features and the data that you are giving out. Secure video sharing ensures that the video is only exposed or viewed by the people you want to see and nobody else!

Types Of Videos That Need Secure Sharing

You can protect pretty much any video you make and release internally or on all the channels; it sometimes works in your favor to leave some videos for public viewings, as a marketing or sales video on a website or an advertising video on platforms like YouTube & Vimeo which contains generic information. This might work in hand with marketing efforts.

But some information is sensitive and possesses a larger value, and such information must be protected from public viewing.

You can protect such confidential information using secure video sharing by adding a password to maintain compliance. Here are some best use cases listed for the kind of video content that needs security tools like password protection.

  • Internal communication videos
  • Company announcements
  • HR Videos like onboarding and pay package disclose videos
  • Product demos & service demos
  • Exclusive offers & trials
  • Company board meeting videos- live stream recording
  • Employee training videos
  • Sales pitch videos
  • Sales follow-up or closing videos
  • Customer support videos made specifically for a client
  • Team meeting minutes
  • Customer service videos
