March 30, 2020 - Many of our customers are aware of recent security concerns around Zoom meetings. In particular, a phenomenon called "zoombombing". On March 30th, ESPO Systems incorporated this practice in our ongoing Employee Awareness Training and Recognition Programs. Policies and procedures have been put into place to make sure that Zoom meetings hosted by ESPO Systems remain secure.
Additionally, Zoom has recently released updates to its software (April 5th) enhancing the solution's capabilities for securing the ever-growing number of online meetings using their platform. ESPO Systems has updated all of our Zoom clients with the newest release which includes a password requirement for entering meetings. If you have previously scheduled Zoom meetings with an ESPO engineer, you should be receiving an updated meeting invitation with the password. If you don't see the password or receive an updated invitation including your meeting’s password, please reach out to our team to have us resend.
Worth noting that this issue is not specifically unique to Zoom, but rather is simply tied to Zoom in recent months due to the platform's success. ESPO Systems remains confident in the security of using this platform to conduct ongoing business with our partners and our customers. If you have additional concerns, however, we are ready and able to accommodate using a different platform that will work for all parties on your project(s).
ESPO Systems is very confident we can deliver our services privately & securely with Zoom. We are flexible and can also deliver on other platforms requested by a partner or customer. Just let us know!
