Archiving features expanded to in-meeting communication
Theta Lake has expanded its integration with Webex to include content sent during meetings.
The updates mean that chat messages and transcripts can be archived, while Theta Lake is also offering a free version of its compliance suite to Webex customers.
Abhay Kulkarni, Vice President and General Manager of Webex Meetings at Cisco, said: “Data and experience show that employees, partners, and customers want to collaborate, communicate, and share information on Webex while their organisations require integrated security and compliance capabilities to safely meet this demand.
“Theta Lake continues to provide Webex customers an integrated and easily deployed solution that delivers holistic capabilities for archiving, archive integration, eDiscovery, monitoring, and supervision to identify misconduct, potential data leakage, and compliance risks regardless of whether it happens over voice, visual, and text-based communications”
Theta Lake claims that firms in highly regulated verticals are not taking full advantage of Webex capabilities – such as screen sharing, virtual whiteboards and file-sharing – because of compliance constraints.
It said that its suite of tools makes Webex compliant with regulations such as SEC 17a-4, MiFID II, FINRA, and GDPR – while keeping all Webex’s features active.
Devin Redmond, CEO of Theta Lake, said: “The new collaboration-first workplace makes it easy for any participant to re-share, record, and reproduce anything shown, shared, spoken, or typed across video, voice, and chat.
“Highly regulated organisations in particular need to maintain compliance standards, accountability, and provability that demonstrate they can adequately archive, supervise, and discover misconduct, malfeasance, and data exposure risks to better protect customers, employees, and their data”
“Theta Lake and Cisco have made great strides to address these needs, and we are thrilled to further extend our partnership with Cisco to do the heavy lifting of compliant archiving, monitoring for data loss, and performing review and supervision across Webex video, voice, and messaging capabilities.”
