Intro to End-to-end encryption for RingCentral Video

Last updated on September 21, 2022
RingCentral Video offers End-to-end encryption (E2EE) to ensure that your video meeting data is accessible only to meeting participants. End-to-end encryption is a privacy protocol that prevents third parties from accessing data when it’s transferred between devices. With E2EE, data is encrypted on the sender’s device and is decrypted only by its intended recipient. 
End-to-end encryption serves three main purposes:
  • Maintaining the confidentiality of your meetings’ audio, video, screenshares, and chat.
  • Protecting the contents of your meetings, even from your internet service provider.
  • Preventing anyone from accessing your data, even if RingCentral’s cloud servers are compromised.
Like many other online services, RingCentral Video uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption as a “first line of defense.” However, TLS encryption can still leave data vulnerable to privacy breaches. RingCentral offers End-to-end encryption as an additional level of privacy protection for video meetings. Learn more about RingCentral’s data security practices.
Note: TLS encryption remains active at all times, even when E2EE is off.
