Cisco Webex Helps Customers Stay Remotely Connected and Reimagine Work
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
Secure collaboration technologies that help people get work done from anywhere are top of mind for every CIO, putting pressure on IT teams to both support the unprecedented shift to remote work while simultaneously planning a return to the office. Today, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) announced key Webex enhancements to help, including: industry-leading security and compliance capabilities, intelligent and actionable insights to deliver consistent user experiences, and an integration with Box. Additionally, the integration of Epic for healthcare will give patients choices for engaging with providers key to their wellness.
As a long-time market leader, Webex continues to support the changing needs of our customers. In April, Webex supported half a billion meeting participants who generated 25 billion meeting minutes – more than triple the average volume.
"Keeping employees, heads of state, healthcare providers and many more securely connected and productive is at the heart of what we do. Even before the pandemic, Cisco was one of the world's largest collaboration providers, supporting nearly half the world's video conferencing. Now we're supporting 3X the normal volumes," said Javed Khan, VP and GM, Cisco's Collaboration Group. "We are proud we could be there for our customers when they needed us most, and we will continue to be there moving forward as we navigate through these times."
Additionally, to help move work forward from wherever you are, we've now integrated Webex Teams and Box, the leading cloud content management platform that is used by 68% of the Fortune 500 and nearly 100,000 businesses globally. Of course, Webex Teams already has a highly secure, easy-to-use file sharing capability built right in.?But now customers can choose to use Box as well as any of the other platforms we integrate with.
