Zoom, a video focused meeting application that left its mark on 2020 due to the Corona virus epidemic, came up with a new purchase report. According to the information shared by Zoom today, the company announced that it has purchased the secure messaging and file sharing service Keybase.
This significant acquisition, which includes Keybase’s team of security and encryption engineers, seems to accelerate Zoom’s plan to deploy end-to-end encryption across the platform. Let’s add that no information about the financial details of the agreement was shared.
Expressing that they aim to offer their users security, ease of use and scalability from a single point, Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan underlined that Keybase will carry the deep encryption and security experience to Zoom. Yuan also shared that joining such a group of compliant security engineers would make significant progress for the 90-day plan where they developed their security work.
The Keybase team, which will join the security engineering section of Zoom, will make significant contributions to the 90-day plan that proactively detects and improves Zoom’s security and privacy capabilities on the platform. Keybase.io co-founder and developer Max Kroh will manage the Zoom security engineering team and work directly with Yuan.
