Cybersecurity Company Launches Secure Videoconferencing Platform

StrikeForce Technologies, a cybersecurity company that specializes in preventing data theft and security breaches, has introduced a new videoconferencing solution billed as a secure alternative to Zoom and other vulnerable platforms. SafeVchat is "designed with a cybersecurity kernel and engineered to secure enterprise communications and keep privacy intact," according to a news announcement.

The platform's security features include a strict password-protected meeting invitation system; multi-factor authentication (encompassing eight different authentication methods, such as fingerprint biometrics and soon-to-be-released facial recognition capabilities); encryption of all audio and video; and compliance with GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPPA, CCPA, SOX, NYDFS and other cybersecurity protocols. Meeting managers have the ability to select which types of authentication can be used by each participant. And the platform's reporting functions offer analytics about each meeting in granular detail.

"With countless reports of 'Zoom bombings' and other videoconferencing-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 member for StrikeForce, in a statement. "Videoconferencing 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."
