Skype Integrates with MY Web Conferences

January 15, 2013

Is your cloud MY TrueCloud? If it is, then you’ll like this, as MY TrueCloud has announced Skype (News - Alert) integration to MY Web Conferences, extending its Web conferencing solution to include Skype participants. This extends the secure and high-quality video conferencing capabilities to Skype users, allowing them to join in on MY Web Conferences Web-chats when invited.

Skype participants can get military-grade 2-Factor Authentication security through a One-Time Password (OTP), issued to them through the invitation. Once they enter it, they can participate in the meeting securely from their Skype accounts. The two are built on the same principles of easy use with no fees for Web or phone usage, although MY Web Conferences supports both VoIP and landlines.

With MY Web Conferences, one can support up to 1,000 participants from inside or outside a company in a secure, interactive, and affordable meeting. Skype users can connect to meetings through MY TrueCloud’s SSL/VPN Tunneling Technology, and are invited to view a White Board, which displays documents, videos, and so on, with room for annotations.

"MY TrueCloud's support of Skype allows companies to effectively communicate and collaborate with their customers and partners across the globe,” says Mitch Alcon, CEO of MY TrueCloud. “Our goal is to emulate the in-house office meeting experience, and with MY Web Conference's advance functionality, we have achieved that goal. Companies will realize significant productivity improvements and rapid return on investment by deploying MY Web Conferences across their enterprise."

Skype is among the most popular programs for chatting on the Web, whether it’s through voice, video, or instant message, so anything integrating with it is likely to increase its userbase. As such, MY TrueCloud was smart to do this, as it will allow smaller businesses to join in on chats through MY Web Conferences, and expand their reach by introducing all its capabilities to new users.
