Security in online meetings and conferences: check out Zoom's latest updates

We have already stated that this is not the time to worry about technology, but the time to focus on content. Zoom is, in this regard, the obvious tool. It allows you to meet virtually any other person at any time, anywhere.

 

We are referring to an online meeting and conference platform, that has faced an exponential growth in usage since March. All over the world. According to available data, there was a 535% rise in daily traffic in March 2020.

 

A sign of confidence in the tool used by more than half of the Fortune 500 companies - data collected in 2019 - and which forced Zoom to make a strong investment in improving the platform, particularly in terms of security.

 

Zoom is definitely a success story. The company's CEO, Eric Yuan - at an online conference - announced that the platform was used by over 300 million people on April 21.

 

We are also talking about a technology that since the beginning of the year has made a very strong investment in security and that announced this week the outcome of 90 days of exclusive dedication to security.

 

In a blog post, Zoom announced that the new version of its software, set to roll out to users within the week, would have a number of features aimed at fixing some of the issues. Users will soon be able to report trolls who intrude on meetings uninvited, and they'll also be able to take advantage of stronger AES 256-bit GCM encryption. Other changes to default settings around meeting passwords and "waiting rooms" — which help keep uninvited guests out of meetings — are already available to users, the post said.

 

 

  • Zoom is definitely a success story. The company's CEO, Eric Yuan - at an online conference - announced that the platform was used by over 300 million people on April 21.

  • Business Insider reports that more than 300 million people joined Zoom meetings on April 21, up 50% from the beginning of the month, an obvious sign that more and more people are looking for ways to communicate online both in their personal and business lives.

 

“Clearly, the Zoom platform is providing an incredibly valuable service to our beloved users during this challenging time. We are thrilled and honored to continue to earn the trust of so many enterprises, hospitals, teachers and customers throughout the world", Eric Yuan said.
