At its annual Zoomtopia Conference, Video conferencing The company announced three major new additions: End to End Encryption (E2EE) for the Zoom phone, a new BYOK service and an identity verification scheme.
The company says the new features will spread to existing concerns (such as E2EE for zoom calls), and hopes to find a way to erase its past. Security hiccups From memory.

Zoom security updates.
Probably the most important of the security features announced in Zoomtopia is the identity verification program, which has been called the launch of a new long-term strategy.
Under this scheme, which is being developed in partnership with. Identity management Company Octa, customers will be asked to confirm their identities before attending the meeting. The system will review users by reviewing a set of data points, including account credentials, security queries, multi-factor authentication, device IDs and more.
Once inside, a blue mark will appear next to their name on the roster to indicate that they have successfully passed an ID check.
As social engineering and phishing attacks become more complex, the protection of personal information is more important than ever. Verification and verification of identity can help determine who is the meeting guest they say they are.
That way, he says, customers can freely share classified information on zoom calls to the knowledge that there is no intruder.
The BYOK service, meanwhile, is designed to help companies with extensive compliance needs to save large assets (such as meeting recordings) more efficiently. Users who register will take control of a key management system within AWS, which will have a master key that no other party can access – including the zoom itself.
And finally, Zoom Zoom is bringing end-to-end encryption to the phone. Cloud phone system. The company says the feature will add a layer of protection to one-on-one calls by protecting against compromising the server.
The new identity verification scheme for the Zoom phone and E2EE “sometime next year” will take effect, while the beta for the BYOK service will launch in the next few months.
