Meeting Lock allows an Intel Unite® meeting to be "locked" preventing additional attendees from joining a given session. The meeting can be unlocked by meeting participants. Presenters receive that additional confidence that sensitive content is not being displayed or viewed by unknown participants.

Protected Guest Access Plugin

(Enabled through a Plugin)

This feature allows a Guest Client device to connect to a Hub without the need to be on the same Enterprise network.

Skype for Business Plugin

(Enabled through a Plugin)

A plugin that provides integration between the Intel Unite® solution and Skype for Business.

It enables you to bridge Skype for Business and Intel Unite® meetings by allowing the Intel Unite® hub to join the Skype meeting. When a user shares via Skype, it will be displayed on the hub. When users share via Intel Unite®, the hub will share the content to the Skype meeting.

Mode: "Enterprise" and "Standalone"

Security Upgrade

SHA2 certificate

Upgraded security to accept only SHA2 or greater certificates. The Intel Unite® solution validates the certificates received from the Enterprise Server when checking in. In version 1 and 2, SHA1 certificates were allowed, however, due to increased security the Intel Unite® solution will no longer allow SHA1 certificates.

Mode: "Enterprise"
