By now you have most likely used Zoom. At this point, your grandparents have probably used it. Founded back in 2011, the video conferencing service came into the mainstream during the coronavirus pandemic. As the world adjusted to new hybrid and remote working models, they turned to virtual communication applications to connect every identity relevant to the business (i.e. internal users, 3rd party vendors/external collaborators, contractors, partners, etc.). While there were a number of alternative solutions, Zoom’s user-friendly platform quickly became the popular choice for personal and professional video conferencing.
In what is now considered the new normal, Zoom meetings became essential to the business. These meetings generate a significant amount of data through video, audio, and text-based files and recordings. The information stored within these recorded assets is often very sensitive in nature; and the risk that becomes elevated is the simple fact that people tend to share sensitive information verbally, as opposed to over text (i.e. email, Slack, etc.).
DoControl is thrilled to extend our integrated technology partner program to include Zoom. This new partnership provides granular data access controls to secure sensitive data within the Zoom application. Our No-Code SaaS Security Platform integrates with Zoom to first gain visibility into specific details on users and cloud recordings, next be able to enforce strong password protection for high-risk users, as well as provide secure access to sensitive video recordings and text-based files, and last but not least establish robust data access control policies to protect sensitive data.
Let’s zoom into the integration in a little bit more detail (pun intended).
Figure 1. Passcode protection for recorded sessions is automatically initiated, every step (approval, remediation, and time-bound element) is configured over an easy to use drag and drop canvas.
Figure 2. Recorded files are automatically scanned for PII. Conditions are set for the meeting host to approve the file, if they do not respond within 30 days the file is removed from public access.
