Learn about Restriction Profiles and how to create them to secure your videos

The security of your assets is our priority. Viostream works with technologies to provide the best protection for our clients’ Media, such as AWS S3 features and cryptography to all Media uploaded.

Adding to that, Viostream offers features that enable the user to determine who can access the Media. It gives all the control to you when using Viostream to reach the right audience for your Media.

Restriction Profiles can be added to Media (Live on On-Demand), Sites, Events and Embeds. Read below the different types of protection Viostream offers.
