Virtual Meeting Isolation secures the web interfaces of apps like Zoom and Teams, addressing vulnerabilities and providing data-sharing controls that prevent the inadvertent leakage of sensitive information.
Use of virtual meeting platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet have become the norm in most organizations. In the new distributed work environment, these tools are a key part of how teams stay connected.
Unfortunately, these tools have created new security vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. For example, cyber criminals have focused their attention on these solutions and launched new attacks targeted on stealing shared data, gaining access to internal IPs of attendees and their devices, delivering malware through infected links in chats, and attending meetings to gather corporate intelligence. Forbes covered the annual Pwn2Own competition which proved how vulnerable Microsoft Teams and Zoom are.
Perhaps just as concerning to CISOs and CIOs is the limited security controls these apps have, which opens the door to employees inadvertently sharing sensitive information within virtual meetings, either in chat, screen shares, or even via their cameras in their background images and desks. While the client applications of Zoom and Teams provide some control, the security policies of many organizations do not permit client-side software to run on their devices. As a result, with no ability to address these security concerns, many companies have been forced to limit their use of these key meeting solutions.
