A New Update of Zoom
This week, Zoom, the video-conferencing platform, has published a new update in order to mention an assault of security concerns around the service. Zoom has said that its newest version, Zoom 5, will include new privacy control as well as encryption. Also, it will update all those features that are a crucial part of 90 days plan to enhance privacy and security.
Eric Yuan is the chief executive officer of the company, and on Wednesday, he stated that he was proud to achieve that step in their 90 days plan, but that was only the beginning. They would obtain the belief of their customers and would deliver with happiness with their consistent focus on delivering the safest platform.
Present users of Zoom
Zoom has worked hard a lot to fulfill the security needs since the platform has grossed up the user base to exceptional levels in recent months.
Since the lockdown, the active users of Zoom soared to 300 million from 10 million because people utilize this platform for passing happy hours, support groups, work meetings and so on. Users worked hard persistently with Zoom-bombing, which is a new kind of assault where bad actors enter the video meetings and theaters in an effort to disrupt them. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings were targeted specifically.
Zoom 5 will now allow its hosts to report another user to Zoon with its newer security button. Also, there is a new feature named “waiting room”, and it requires the participants to approve that person to enter the meeting like Blackmart.
It has also added a new encryption standard that is called AES 256-bit GCM encryption, and it is regarded as the gold standard. The co-founder and chief technology officer of Utah-based software company SaltStack, Thomas Hatch, said that the change would assist in preventing the meetings from being hijacked.
