Zoom, BlackBerry partner for secure video conferencing

Security vendor BlackBerry has partnered with Zoom to integrate its video conferencing platform into its mobility solution.

Dubbed “Zoom for BlackBerry”, the video conferencing platform has been integrated in BlackBerry’s Dynamics secure mobility platform.

BlackBerry Dynamics allows customers with remote workforces to let their staff work from any device securely, including any business-critical applications.

Zoom’s inclusion into Dynamics gives it BlackBerry’s standards for security, control, and privacy, plus the security of being used within a container.

Some security features include:

  • Embedded Mobile Threat Defense - built-in protection from phishing URLs and malware infected shared files, plus screenshot compliance policies and prevention
  • Data Leakage Protection - prevents meeting participants copying from Zoom for BlackBerry and pasting into a personal app (allowed in ordinary Zoom usage)
  • Files shared in Chat remain secured in the Dynamics file system – content is saved inside the container, encrypted by BlackBerry
  • IT can remotely wipe the application and data if needed
  • The password is at the app level, not the device level
