StrikeForce Technologies Inc., a cyber technology company that prevents data theft and security breaches, announced the global commercial launch of SafeVchat, a video conferencing platform designed with a cybersecurity kernel and engineered to secure enterprise communications and keep privacy intact.
With the rise of remote work, the business world has become reliant on video conferencing as a replacement for in-person meetings. Existing video conferencing platforms have been a convenient means of communication, the reality is that they were not built with security as a priority or even a consideration.
According to research from Blind Report, over a third of working professionals are worried their information may have been compromised on Zoom.
“With countless reports of ‘Zoom bombings’ and other video conferencing-related cyber-attacks, the launch of this new service comes at a crucial juncture where we’ve grown more dependent than we could have imagined on these unsecure platforms,” said Steve Cooper, former CIO, U.S. Department of Commerce, the Federal Aviation Administration, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Advisory Board Chairman for StrikeForce. “Video conferencing is here to stay, and SafeVchat offers a secure option that will become an essential tool for any organization looking to confidently keep both their own and their customer data safe while maintaining complete compliance.”
SafeVchat, a client-less, web and mobile-based video conferencing platform is designed to protect users from common attacks and threats that leverage existing platforms as a vehicle to distribute malware. Platforms like Zoom, MS Teams, WebEx and others have proven to be vulnerable to cyber-attacks. SafeVchat’s five-level security approach includes a strict password-protected meeting invitation system that encompasses multi-factor authentication, ensuring only pre-approved users can attend a meeting. Additionally, all meeting endpoints are secured from potential malware attacks, and all audio and video are encrypted.
Additional SafeVchat features that have been implemented since December’s soft rollout include:
- Multiple Authentication Methods – SafeVchat includes eight different authentication methods, including fingerprint biometrics, with facial recognition capabilities to be released soon
- Authentication Determined by Host – Meeting managers can select which types of authentication method each participant may use
- Analytics and Reporting – SafeVchat provides comprehensive analytics reporting that enables granular level detailed reports about every meeting
- Unmatched Compliance – SafeVchat meets all cybersecurity compliance protocols, including GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPPA, CCPA, SOX, NYDFS, etc.
A mobile version of SafeVchat is available for download on the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
