Introduction


 

RingCentral Meetings gives you the power to video conference and web share, as part of your complete business communications solution. Hold face-to-face meetings in high definition and share your desktop or documents with anyone, anytime, anywhere.

 

Participants can be invited to join a meeting by email, or by SMS on mobile; they don't have to be RingCentral customers but can download and run the RingCentral Meetings app for free and join your meetings without needing to create an account or log in. Hosts of RingCentral Meetings must have RingCentral accounts and be signed in.

 

RingCentral Meetings is designed for open exchange and interactive communications: Participants control their own audio and video display, and desktop web sharing control is shared by all participants.

 

RingCentral Meetings is available with RingCentral Office, or as a standalone solution. For more information see the RingCentral Office Admin Guide or the.RingCentral Meetings Admin and User Setup Guide. The RingCentral Meeting application can be installed on Mac, Microsoft desktops, and iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

End-to-End Encryption of Media for Meeting Endpoints

End-to-end encryption is an added layer of application security. RingCentral Meetings can encrypt all presentation content at the application layer using TLS 1.2 with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm. End-to-end encryption is also designed to facilitate HIPAA based compliance requirements.

 

End-to-end-encryption is configured at the account or user level. Once it is enabled, all meetings are AES encrypted.

 

It will force encryption across RingCentral Meetings running on desktop, mobile and RingCentral Rooms, as well as for H.323/SIP endpoints, except PSTN telephone. This feature will also force end-to-end encryption of group messaging. Encryption may impact performance as it requires more processing cycle on the participants' devices.

 

You can view a lock icon when a meeting has end-to-end encryption enabled in RingCentral Meetings desktop and mobile clients.
