Under new rules implemented early this month, existing users of the free edition of Cisco’s Webex videoconferencing solution can now include up to 100 people in a meeting, versus the previous 50, and conduct meetings for unlimited periods rather than just 40 minutes. The system now supports toll dial-in connections in addition to its native VoIP functionality as well.
To help businesses use Webex safely, Cisco has more recently begun letting companies with existing deployments of three products exceed their current user limit to accommodate remote workers. The offer applies to the Cisco Umbrella endpoint and network security product, Duo Security multifactor authentication system, and Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobile Client VPN solution. In addition, free 14-day licenses to new users of those products are available now as well. Those offers will remain in effect through June.
