As a SysAdmin I'm being pushed in to providing a web meeting / web conferencing tool for our sales force to demo our software to prospective customers etc.  i've been aware of (and blocked) Webex for a few years now, but now i have to provide a solution.  We are predominantly Microsoft based throughout the company and i don't really want to host anything internally to do this.

What i'm after is some information/advice on -

What are considered the best and securest tools for the job these days ?
Do any of the current big players offerings have security issues ?
What is best practice for these tools ?
Any particular advice on placeware/ MS live meeting ?

As its not an exact question I'll divide the 500 points amongst the best answers.

I would go with Microsoft / Placeware solution.  I have used it myself and ms use it themselves which I think goes to show their confidence in it.

I used it in an environment mainly for sharing applications and either mine or customers more than presentations but they work well.  I had no security concerns with it as I could end a session and the person at the other end only has access to whatI give them.

Agree with our friends here...

WebEx is quite good tool for the requirement...Still you can consider Microsoft solution as your environment is the same..http://main.placeware.com/
