Key takeaways from this week’s session
Data routing control
Zoom admins and owners of paid accounts can opt-in or out of any data center region (apart from their home region) at the account, group, or user level. Read our blog on data control routing for more details.
Zoom 5.0 announcement
Set to release this weekend, Zoom 5.0 includes two new features to help Zoom users host secure meetings and protect their data:
- Support for AES 256-Bit GCM: Zoom 5.0 supports AES 256-bit GCM encryption, which provides more protection for meeting data and greater resistance to tampering. Organizations will have access to GCM encryption with the release of Zoom 5.0, and a system-wide account enablement will occur May 30, when all Zoom customers will switch to the new cryptographic mode.
- Report a User: Hosts and co-hosts can report users to Zoom’s Trust & Safety team, who will review any potential misuse of the platform and take appropriate action. This feature will be found within the Security icon in the meeting controls.
