Great news! The Meet video calling app is now available on Univention Corporate Server. In case you missed it: Meet is Kopano’s secure, open-source and easy-to-use solution for video conferencing. It is peer-to-peer and end-to-end encrypted. This means a conversation always takes place directly between the people in the call, with no other parties in between. Because Kopano developed Meet as a progressive web app, interaction with the app feels the same. No matter the device you are using.
Recently we were scared twice: Google reads our emails and with Microsoft Office365, users can be monitored. I was surprised that apparently there are companies that let people read e-mails instead of automatically browsing through content… but that’s beside the point here. More important is the recurring insight that whoever has data, uses it.
As we always say, whatever technology you decide to use, make sure you are in control of your data. In a great talk, Univention CEO Peter Ganten showed us not a future dystopia, or a vision, but reality as it is right now. A reality where not we, but the largest technology companies in this world have control over our most valuable asset: data.
