Zoom Announces Version 5.0 with Enhanced Security Updates

Now more secure

As part of its efforts of addressing security and privacy concerns, videoconferencing platform Zoom announced version 5.0 of its app. The latest version has improved security and privacy features, headlined by its use of AES 256-bit GCM encryption for better integrity of  Zoom Meetings, Zoom Video Webinars, and Zoom Phone data. Zoom 5.0 also gives account administrators the choice to which data center regions their account-hosted meetings and webinars use for real-time traffic at the account, group, or user level.

The user experience has been improved as well. With the latest version, all of Zoom’s security features can be accessed through the Security icon on the meeting menu bar. The said icon also has  “Report a User” for flagging suspicious users. To ensure added security, Waiting Rooms and Meeting Passwords are now enabled by default.
