For example, Progressive Expert Consulting, Inc. (PEC), a training and technology company, has pioneered concepts in both synchronous and asynchronous training to provide brick-and-mortar learning in a virtual setting. To create a platform solution that would meet the stringent requirements of training for the U.S. Department of Defense, including the Special Operations Forces Teletraining System (SOFTS), PEC partnered with Lumicademy and incorporated their secure video conferencing platform.
“We needed a platform solution that we could control and would also meet our stringent requirements for military-grade security,” said Tim Feng, Vice President at PEC. “It had to be private, so we could choose how and where to install any modules, as well as pass the critical encryption requirements for sensitive operations. Lumicademy offered the ability to control everything for the user — from top-level video and audio controls, security of the classroom, right down to the control of devices utilized on each workstation.”
In addition, PEC also noted that Lumicademy provides secure sharing of sensitive content such as documents, files, and recordings that cannot be streamed over the public internet or stored in uncontrolled cloud data centers.
