Managed event security options

Make your managed event more secure by managing who can access your event and how. Secure your event with password protection, pre-authorized sites, and by approving and blocking email addresses, domains, and IP addresses.

To include the following security features, contact your event production manager and provide them with any required documents at least 1 business day before the event.

Note: Information in this article is for managed events customers. If you have a webcast license, you can set these security options and more in the Webcast Admin portal, on the Security tab for your event.

This feature also prevents viewers from sharing the event link with others. Recommended if you plan to post your webcast link on other sites, such as Intranet sites.

Password protection

Require viewers to provide a password when joining the event, registering for the event, or both.

Limit access by viewer email address and email domain

Before the event, provide your event production manager with an Excel file that includes the email addresses and domains you want to invite and block.
 

Limit access by viewer IP
