Components of a Secure Live Streaming Platform

Wondering what are the key security requirements of ensuring a breach-free private live streaming experience? Let us reveal the secret sauce of VIDIZMO:

Content Encryption

Ensure complete content protection of your videos at all stages utilizing AES 256-bit encryption for your data at rest and SSL video streaming is supported through TLS encryption for data in transit. To provide an additional layer of protection, your Data-Encryption-Keys (DEK) is further encrypted with Key-Encryption Keys (KEK). You could even go a step further by opting for our add-on support of DRM.

Identity and Access Management

Single sign-on (SSO) integration is available with 25+ SSO and IAM providers alongside SCIM support for user and group provisioning and synchronization. This allows you to link VIDIZMO with your company’s directory to bring in your existing user groups and have your user information be auto-updated.


Granular access controls can be put in place to control user activity by assigning users one of the 6 pre-defined user roles to define what actions they may or may not perform. You can even create custom user roles for your unique requirements. User groups could be created to segregate content and restrict it to certain team members.

Authorized Embedding

Want to have your live stream be available for playback on your website or application without compromising on security? VIDIZMO’s authenticated embedding makes it possible for you to do so.

Secure Hosting in Your Trusted Datacenter

There are a variety of secure and flexible deployment options available for VIDIZMO, amongst them is the choice to opt for one of the leading cloud providers, including Azure and AWS. This gives you the choice to host your live stream in the region of your choice.

On-Premise Live Streaming

Do you operate in a highly regulated industry? Have to meet a variety of compliances? Have existing virtual machines that you want to utilize? Worry not! VIDIZMO could even be deployed on-premise. The installation process is easy. This will allow you to conduct secure live streams on-premise behind your firewall on your private WAN connections, where your in-house IT team could choose to manage the entire operation.

IP, Domain and Geo-Restrictions

Have certain trusted domains for your live streams to be embedded on? Or want to restrict some domains in particular? Put in place domain restrictions based on your requirements.

Limit who can view your live streams by restricting certain IP addresses. If you want to block off certain regions, you can opt for the location restriction feature.

Custom Security Policy

Create a custom security policy to limit who can and cannot access your portal. This way your admins can allow contributors to freely conduct live streams without worrying about them mistakenly allowing external or anonymous viewers from gaining access to these internal live streams.
