Zoom introduces security updates in response to ‘Zoom-bombings'

Zoom has come up with new updates over security issues that occurred lately. Their newest version Zoom 5.0 has encryption and privacy controls, and updates that are part of a 90-day plan to improve security and privacy on the platform.

“I am proud to reach this step in our 90-day plan, but this is just the beginning,” Eric Yuan, the company’s chief executive officer, said in a call on Wednesday. “We will earn our customers’ trust and deliver them happiness with our unwavering focus on providing the most secure platform.”

Post lockdown, Zoom has been very active by daily users shooting up from 10 million to 300 million as people use this platform for work meetings, funerals, and support groups.

Users of Zoom 5.0 can “report a user” with the help of security button and the new update “waiting room” allow participants to enter a meeting only after approval.

“The end-to-end encryption that has been introduced improves the liability that existed before where video conferences could be hijacked out of line,” Thomas Hatch, the co-founder and chief technology officer of Utah-based software firm SaltStack said. “This adds a much better layer of privacy that was not present before.”
