Zoom: Here are some alternatives to the video conferencing software

Publié le

The general containment put in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 has forced organizations to equip themselves with videoconferencing tools. Around the world, schools, businesses and institutions have rushed to use software such as Zoom to keep their operations running. The downside is that despite all its efforts, the Zoom application is not as secure as it claims. Recently, The Intercept site highlighted the fact that the application’s video streams were not encrypted as Zoom claimed. A few days earlier, the FBI alerted about the hacking of video meetings by hackers. If you are looking for an alternative to Zoom to make video meetings or continue your training in complete security, here are the alternatives available to you.
