Amid unprecedented industry-wide growth in video conferencing usage and ensuing reports regarding user privacy concerns with other platforms, Lifesize, a global innovator of video collaboration and meeting productivity solutions, reaffirmed its commitment to data privacy with a policy that meets the expectations of enterprise customers.

“Privacy and security are of paramount importance to ensuring that Lifesize delivers a truly enterprise-grade video conferencing experience,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize and Serenova. “Organizations around the globe trust us with their most vital business communications and sensitive data, and that trust would be shattered if we had any practices that ran counter to treating customers’ privacy with the utmost respect and seriousness. Our sole focus as a company is to deliver customer value through our solutions; we will never treat our customers as the product or their data as a revenue stream.”

The company’s continued commitment to privacy is reinforced by the Lifesize Privacy Policy:
