WebHuddle: Uniquely Cross-Platform

Some web conferencing vendors support multiple versions of Microsoft Windows and consider that "cross-platform." WebHuddle truly lives up to the ideal, supporting virtually any operating system with a Java runtime. Currently, this includes Microsoft Windows, Linux, UNIX and Mac OSX. WebHuddle owes its broad platform support to Java, the same technology that helps it achieve superior security and extremely small size.

Recognizing Java’s advantages, some services offer, as an option, an alternative Java version of their standard web conferencing client. This can come with the caveat, however, that performance and functionality are not as good as with the "native" client. In contrast, WebHuddle gives you the full benefits of Java without any compromises. With WebHuddle, you don’t have to choose between security, size and functionality ... you can have it all!

Other vendors use Java for their client but fail to leverage its cross-platform support, supporting only Microsoft Windows. This is a shame, as it prevents you from reaping the benefits of Java’s cross-platform support. Still other vendors use Java but don’t support the Microsoft Java runtime (or Java Virtual Machine). This greatly reduces the number of people who can participate because the Microsoft JVM is by far the most widely deployed Java runtime. By supporting both the widely deployed Microsoft JVM and the versions of Java found on non-Windows platforms, WebHuddle means more meetings for more people.

For those using Microsoft Windows, Linux, UNIX or Mac OSX, WebHuddle’s cross-platform support means more than just accessible meetings today. It also means more options, tomorrow, to use different operating systems in your organization’s future. Even if you currently use only Microsoft Windows, WebHuddle leaves the door open for other platforms down the road.

Which brings us to our next point: more platforms can yield better security. Borrowing an idea from biology, many argue that an operating system "monoculture" is a security risk. Farmers reduce their risk by planting different strains of crops. Since different diseases affect different strains, the more varieties planted the less risk for the farmer. Likewise, if an organization has operating systems A, B and C deployed, and a worm knocks out all the computers running A, at least all B and C systems are still running. Cross platform support is only one of several ways WebHuddle enables truly unique security, click here to learn about the others.

WebHuddle means real cross-platform support without excuses.
