|As of May 30, Zoom will mandate all users install an update with military-grade AES 256-bit encryption. Zoom still is working on end-to-end encryption. In March and April Zoom had several security concerns, many of which had to do simply with unsecure Zoom links being sent out. However, one involved recordings staying in the cloud for hours after being deleted and one included routing through servers in China, sparking privacy concerns.
All issues have been dealt with, but other items on this list have little to no bad news. If you want to use Zoom, HIPAA enabled plans start at $200 per month per account, which comes with 10 hosts. Sales must be contacted for other pricing information. More information below:
