Why we’re trusted: the Webex security difference

Security and privacy are in our DNA. Cisco has a strong security heritage and has made significant investments to build a culture with the right checks and balances in place. This same level of protection was built into Webex from the ground up to give you a collaboration experience you can trust.

Collaboration without compromise.

Cisco Webex offers you compliance, visibility and control.

Webex is backed by Cisco’s rich history of security — from network, to endpoints, to data center and cloud. Whether you’re collaborating inside or outside your company, Webex is a secure platform that protects your data.

We are committed to 3 main principles.

  • Privacy

    Webex is committed to respecting PRIVACY.

  • Security


  • Governance

    Webex has CYBER GOVERNANCE and is TRANSPARENT when there are security issues.

Webex is committed to respecting your PRIVACY.

  • Cisco does not rent or sell user data to third parties.
  • Cisco implements all features with security and privacy in mind.
  • Cisco is transparent about our privacy practices which can be viewed here.


  • Webex security is built-in as a key foundational element and is secure by default. It's not the user’s responsibility to opt-out of sharing their data, or change meeting settings in order to be protected.
  • Webex enables passwords by default for any meeting. Webex UX is designed to not expose Meeting IDs if a user were to post a screenshot of their meeting window on social media.
  • All communications between Cisco Webex Applications, Webex Room devices and the Cisco Webex Cloud occur over encrypted channels, for true video call security.
  • Once a session is established over TLS, all media streams (audio VoIP, video, screen share, and document share) are encrypted.
  • True end-to-end encryption is available for those requiring enhanced security.
  • Cisco processes and stores recordings, transcriptions and closed captioning data in-house.

Webex has CYBER GOVERNANCE and is TRANSPARENT when there are security issues.

  • Cisco’s Security and Trust Organization oversees security and privacy for Webex, and publicly discloses security vulnerabilities.
  • Cisco builds all products in accordance with the Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle (CSDL), which includes privacy impact assessments, proactive penetration testing and threat modeling.
