How secure is the Panopto service?

Panopto is highly secure. Customer materials (videos and content) are replicated in real-time across two geographically separate facilities and also backed up on nightly basis.

The data centers are monitored 24/7 for climate and security and have redundant power supplies with dual mains, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) and generator backup.

Communication between the software and server is encrypted using SSL (AARNet managed certificates) which mitigates against Man In the Middle (MITM) attacks.

Hosted data is protected by firewall which will block port-scanning attempts, and BCP38 is implemented for protection against IP address spoofing.

Panopto conducts independent security assessment regularly on the hosted service. AARNet also conducts an annual independent security audit of the Panopto service deployed at AARNet.

The Panopto website contains information on application security and component security.
