VIDIZMO provides its users a number of ways in which they can ensure the security of their Portal. These measures can be configured for your organization's needs by navigating to the Portal Settings of a Portal. These options involve the following:
Portal's Security PolicySecurity Policy in a Portal enables users to define governance controls that determine who can access your Portal and view media published in the Library of your Portal.
In VIDIZMO, Security Policies are preset configurations based on common customers requirements including a Custom option for those who prefer to customize their settings to meet specific business requirements. These preset Security Policy types are:
- Public: This is specifically designed to make the content accessible to all, whether registered or anonymous users.
- Internal: This is designed to make content accessible by all Account (main Portal) and sub-portals users.
- Restricted: This Security Policy is designed to help limit access to only Portal users.
- Hidden: It is designed to limit Portal's viewing ability for Portal users only and also hides the Portal from being listed on other Portals.
- Custom: This security policy enables the customer to set their own options for access control.

Login Timeout option enables you to set a time period of inactivity after which the users may automatically be logged out for increased security. The default timeout is 20 minutes but can be modified to an Unlimited or Limited time as per required by the users.

User Registration Fields
There are some basic fields that a user must define while registering for a Portal, such as First Name, Last Name, City, State, Country etc. Moreover, VIDIZMO allows you to add any custom registration field that should also be defined for every user joining the Portal, such as Department, Email etc.

As an organization, data's accessibility and outreach is of elemental concern. Organizations may choose to disallow content embedding on other sites that they do not trust for security, privacy or any other reasons. For increased control over the confidentiality and security of data, VIDIZMO offers the option of adding Trusted Domains for the customer organization.
Trusted Domains are a set of domains that VIDIZMO users specify to enable embedding their content on. Similarly, the option can be utilized to disallow users to embed VIDIZMO media on specified domains which essentially excludes them from the Trusted Domains list.
If you want to allow/disallow embedding of private content to specific external systems such as Facebook, SharePoint, Jive, WordPress or other CMS, you can enable this feature and specify their domain names.

VIDIZMO's Location Restriction feature allows enterprises to limit content playback in restricted regions using a subnet of blacklisted IP addresses. With this feature enabled, user requests are declined by VIDIZMO if they are being generated from any of the IP addresses enlisted in the restricted locations.
