“Security is too often an afterthought in video communication. While the user experience is undeniably important, it means absolutely nothing if customers can’t trust that their critical business communications and sensitive data are protected in the most responsible, secure ways possible. The Zoom exploit method reported yesterday further reinforces the company’s practice of sacrificing security for convenience, made worse by its indefensibly unsatisfactory response and the fact that it still does not encrypt video calls by default for the vast majority of its customers.

In stark contrast, Lifesize remains committed to building our service atop secure open standards like WebRTC, ensuring enterprise-grade security controls are turned on by default, and conducting business on a foundation of transparency and trust with our customers.”
