Once on the internet, always on the internet – something we all fear; a huge detriment for organizations wanting to share videos with their global teams for virtual communication and collaboration. There are a million ways to upload and share videos on the internet. But most platforms are focused on external, public-facing content that does not require security. Things get trickier if the video has to be kept private; even tougher is only sharing them for a limited time or to a restricted audience. Temporary video sharing might seem impossible to you, but worry not! This article presents to you an air-tight solution to share videos online temporarily.
But what is this security risk that everyone keeps rambling on about? It is more severe than you might think. Research by Cybersecurity Ventures has estimated that businesses face a ransomware attack every 11 seconds. In 2019, ransomware alone had damages adding up to $11.5 billion.
With all this risk in play, security can no longer be ignored. But sharing videos is just as important. Without that, videos lose all their value. This is an information-rich asset that serves a variety of purposes, including internal communications, training and learning, marketing and sales, live events, and video archival.
Let us now explore the much-awaited solution offering temporary video sharing with various other video streaming and management capabilities: VIDIZMO.
VIDIZMO | Secure Video Platform for Temporary Video Sharing
Here is a Gartner-recognized complete enterprise video platform for professional-grade live and on-demand video streaming and video asset management. VIDIZMO EnterpriseTube, a YouTube-like collaborative video platform, is designed with the security-first approach and has various video access management and sharing capabilities to ensure limited playback without the chances of data leakage.
Temporary Video Share | Limited Sharing Options
Upload videos on VIDIZMO’s YouTube-like video library. Your video portal can be restricted to your portal users for internal viewing only with options to share videos with external viewers as well when needed.
- Generate multiple expirable links to share temporary videos – password protect them for secure internal or external sharing within a limited time frame
- Or simply restrict a video for internal viewing in the video portal within a limited time duration (you can even limit the number of times a viewer may watch a video)
- Or just send an email invite of the video to external viewers – they would need to authenticate to watch the video (feel free to limit the number of views and time duration of video availability)
Limit Access Even Within Your Team
Have a video you want to temporarily share online with only a few members of your team? Or restrict to on department? Or share with the entire organization? It is all possible to do on VIDIZMO on VIDIZMO online video sharing platform.
You can simply choose to define who can view your video – the entire organization, certain groups (departmental group or special projects), select users, or even anonymous viewers. Videos shared within a group will not be accessible to anyone else in the organization (unless you share them with someone else).
You can choose to password-protect the video and can even set a time period for its availability. Decide if you want to block its download and disable sharing and embedding of these temporary videos. Or just go one step ahead and create a custom player template to pick and choose the controls these temporary videos have. This will allow you to remove the options like seeking forward.
Large or Small | Share Away Video of Any Size and Format
Videos come in all shapes and forms. Some are micro-learning bites, while others can be hour-long meeting recordings or recorded live events. Duration is not the only factor that plays a role in its size. The video quality also adds up to its size.
Sharing large video files published in a variety of formats can prove to be a huge hassle. And for sharing a temporary video, this will be a lot of work. VIDIZMO’s video content management capabilities allow you to avoid all this worry. The video platform can easily handle the advanced processing of over 255 types of file formats.
Benefit from automatic transcoding, metadata extraction, thumbnail generation, and much more. Automatically transcode your video to create multiple renditions in different resolution levels and format types. The different versions support adaptive bitrate streaming catering to your employees streaming under varying bandwidth conditions from any part of the world (CDN support assists in smooth global content delivery). The multiple formats make your video readily playable on all devices and browsers.
In-Video Interactivity and Collaboration
Your video assets can be used in a variety of different ways to support collaboration and ensure active video participation. Add in-video interactive elements like quizzes to test comprehension, fun polls for engagements, surveys to collect feedback, downloadable handouts (like a document, ppt or another video) to provide additional information, and forms (HubSpot or custom create a form) for lead generation. Enable annotations to support collaboration by allowing viewers to leave a note at any particular timestamp. You can even encourage viewers to leave comments for further discussion.
Going through the effort of temporarily sharing video might all be a waste if your method has security loopholes. VIDIZMO ensures you face none. The platform has a ton of security features, some of which are:
- SSO integration with various SSO and IAM systems along with SCIM support
- End-to-end encryption for content protection in-transit and at-rest
