Meeting face to face has become the norm at your company. The phones have become dusty because you’ve been meeting in person when you’re in the office, or over video when at home and on the go. The adoption of video conferencing has spread throughout your business like glitter and glue in a kindergarten classroom.
But through all of this, you’ve been feeling like something is missing. You know that video conferencing has inherent value, but you've been looking for the best way to demonstrate return on investment. Well, Blue Jeans is here to help! We’ll show you how you missed that 3-hour flight delay, that 30 minute argument over the rental car insurance, and even the 30 seconds of crying because the hotel gave your room to someone else. Now you can find out exactly what you’re missing - and what you’re saving - thanks to the *NEW* ROI calculator within Blue Jeans Command Center Pro!
At Blue Jeans Network, we are intrigued by the modern meeting landscape. We’ve enjoyed seeing videoconferencing transcend from simply being a day-to-day office tool to becoming a definitive aspect of acompany’s collaborative culture. We understand meetings continue to transform— and we wanted to explore how. The annual State of the Modern Meeting Report is back, with new stats that give us a vivid picture of what today’s meetings look like. We’ve provided the tools — and now, the trends— to help deepen your insight on how to improve your next collaboration and boost your team’s productivity.
Assessing the complexity of delivering video over the Internet
On Aug 3, 1492... almost exactly 523 years ago to the day, Christopher Columbus left on a voyage that would ultimately lead to the discovery of America. His primary tool for navigation: a compass. His discovery, an accident. A mistake, really- he was trying to find a western sea route to China, India, and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia.
This historic serendipity would not have been possible without the compass, which led to arguably the most influential discovery. In history. Ever.
As a growing company, we have more vendors coming at us now than ever. They know we are expanding, they know we have funding, and they know we need resources. Now, I might sound totally biased when I tell you this; but I simply could not imagine vetting a vendor or maintaining a vendor partnership without the use of video.
Admit it, we just can’t take it easy anymore. Summer used to be a time marked by long sunny days that were perfected with a tall glass of sweet tea and vine ripened fruit.
These days, summer time means busy parents rushing through traffic to make their morning meetings after chauffeuring their kids to yet another summer camp; managers hustling to make sure effective team collaboration doesn’t stop as their employees take a much deserved break.
What’s the next stop on our cross-country tour? It’s the city that never sleeps, the home of the Statue of Liberty and arguably the best pizza in the United States. That’s right, we’re headed to The Big Apple or New York City! If you’re one of our customers in the New York City area, or want to learn more about Blue Jeans, we’d love to have you come enjoy a cocktail and join in on the conversation with the team behind your favorite video conferencing solution.
Our bags are packed and we’re ready to rock-and-roll! We are mid-air, headed to Orlando for InfoComm 2015, the largest Audio/Visual conference in North America. We couldn’t be more excited to show off our services to the estimated 39,000 attendees this year!
Blue Jeans is excited to be spending some time in one of our favorite cities in the Midwest this week to host and attend a few spectacular events!
The first is our Chicago installment of Cocktail Hour with Blue Jeans. We are hosting the event alongside Team Rubicon, who unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to deploy emergency teams all over the world.
On Wednesday, May 20th, 2015 the Security team at Blue Jeans Network became aware of the latest vulnerability in TLS protocol named "Logjam" or the Weak/EXPORT Diffie-Hellman Man-in-the-middel vulnerability.
This new vulnerability is similar to another recent announcement regarding SSL and TLS and Blue Jeans Network already disabled all "EXPORT" grade cipher suites and is not vulnerable to Logjam or FREAK because of these efforts. In our production environment, we support a minimum of 2048-bit keys for asymmetric encryption, and 128-bit key for symmetric encryption, this applies to Diffie-Hellman key exchanges as well.
The security team at Blue Jeans Network is striving for continuous improvement and staying ahead of these efforts.
If you have further questions, you may contact Technical Support, your Customer Success Manager, or your account representative.
