Needless to say, security within Mikogo is of a high standard, with several levels of security available to protect the user’s privacy and computer data.
256-Bit AES Encryption
All transmitted information during a web conference or remote support session is compressed with proprietary compression algorithms. Mikogo never sends session content in clear text, but encrypts all data using 256-bit AES encryption.
The Mikogo website is secured with 128-bit encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which is the most widely used Internet standard for securing sensitive web data communications.
Unique Session ID and Session Password
Upon starting a Mikogo session, a randomly generated unique session ID will be created and received by the session organizer. This specific session ID is required by anybody who wishes to join the session.
To enhance security further, organizers are able to define a session password within the Mikogo Settings prior to starting a session. Participants will then need both the session ID and password in order to join.
Roles and Responsibilities
There are several roles in a Mikogo meeting: organizer, presenter and participant. By providing roles and responsibilities, Mikogo ensures that only those who intend to share screen content and participate in a meeting, are those who have given their approval.
Third Party Access Prevention
We employ state of the art firewalls, network monitoring, and intrusion detection tools to ensure that no unwanted parties can participate in a Mikogo session and view the screen of another.
No Meeting Data Stored
Dynamic session content displayed during a Mikogo session originates only from the presenter’s machine. The participant sees only representations of this data. At the conclusion of a session, all such representations dissipate.
Participants are always notified prior to transmitting their computer screen and granting remote control rights to others. A participant cannot view nor control another’s screen without the explicit consent of the other participant in question.
Disable Remote Control
Full control of one’s keyboard and mouse can be regained at any time during a Mikogo desktop sharing session simply by hitting the shortcut key Ctrl+F12 (for PC users) or Ctrl+ESC (for Mac users).
