Note: In late May, Zoom released version 5.0 of its videoconferencing platform, which addresses a number of security and privacy concerns. A list of these updates can be found here: https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/zoom-v5-0.html.
The Covid-19 pandemic has restricted the movement of millions of people, and many companies have transitioned to remote workforces, schools have moved to virtual learning, and restaurants and stores have switched to delivery. These events are driving the demand for video conferencing, online collaboration, and chat systems to carry out business.
