Users can configure passwords and watermarks to boost videoconferencing security.

Secure underlying architecture backed by Tencent Cloud

The underlying architecture of VooV Meeting is supported by Tencent Cloud, which ensures an encrypted network with multiple layers of protection for business data, management protocols, network equipment, etc. In fact, the security measures of Tencent Cloud have been certified by a number of third-party accrediting agencies, including ISO 27001 Certification for global compliance and K-ISMS Certification for regional standards.
