As reported by TechRadar, Microsoft has laid out plans to make its Teams collaboration software more secure than ever as it deals with the remote working boom. The video conferencing service has seen a huge surge in users in recent weeks as workers around the world are forced to work from home. But with competitors such as Zoom facing heavy criticism for a number of security and privacy failings, Microsoft Teams has now laid out just how it plans to safeguard these vital aspects.
Any move to bolster security must be commended, especially as millions of people move to working from home and using video conferencing capabilities for the first time. Sadly, no video conferencing platform is 100% secure and all should be used with caution. Even if the application is up to date and heavily focused on privacy and security, someone in the call could easily record the meeting without anyone knowing.
