Zoom for BlackBerry boosts security, privacy


Zoom for BlackBerry is the BlackBerry Dynamics-enabled version of Zoom.

It's no secret that the use of videoconferencing applications such as Zoom has skyrocketed during 2020.

And it is also well known that such apps aren't always designed with enterprise security requirements in mind.

Organisations using the BlackBerry Dynamics secure mobility platform now have the opportunity to use Zoom for BlackBerry, which implements several additional security features by putting Zoom inside an encrypted container.

This ensures that the app and its data are password-protected at the required length and complexity.

Dynamics protects from shared phishing URLs and malware, prevents Zoom data being copied and pasted into external apps, and keeps all shared files inside the container.

Administrators can remotely wipe the app and its data, control or disable access to the camera and photo gallery, disable logins via Facebook or Google, require the use of single sign on, apply screenshot policies on iOS or prevent them completely on Android, disable cloud recording, and disable the use of JavaScript and plug-ins.

"Put simply, Zoom for BlackBerry is a highly secure way to hold your internal enterprise meetings," said BlackBerry vice president of global technical solutions Alex Willis.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
