Zoom Video Conferencing & Communications
April 2, 2020
Summary: Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems. Due to COVID-19, there has been a sharp increase for remote communication needs, a preventative measure many are taking. The use of its services and applications has risen 535% daily within the last month. The services are being used by education institutions, government officials, business across all industries and personal communications. However, with the rise in use, security and privacy concerns have continued to rise bringing into question the safety of business and individual users in relying upon Zoom’s applications and services. Especially considering the large numbers of Zoom-bombing attacks and multiple critical zero-day vulnerabilities released of late.
Fortress Information Security (FIS) will continue to monitor this vendor and will update this report with any new findings and vulnerabilities as they come out.
