Google has, on Thursday, April 9, announced ban of use of videoconferencing App Zoom amongst its employees. Citing security and privacy concerns, the tech giant prohibited the download and further use of the App on employees’ work computers.
While Zoom is fighting hard to reclaim its integrity, Google’s ban is another major market fallback for the videoconferencing service provider company.
Google, according to its spokesperson, Jose Castaneda, ruled that Zoom does not meet its company’s security standards. “Recently, our security team informed employees using Zoom Desktop Client that it will no longer run on corporate computers, as it does not meet our security standards for apps used by our employees.”
For this reason, “Employees who have been using Zoom to stay in touch with family and friends can continue to do so through a web browser or via mobile,” Castaneda said.
