History

Eric Yuan an American brought into the world Chinese was originator of Zoom. Eric is previous VP for Cisco Webex (Another Web Base Video Conferencing App). He left Cisco in April 2011 with 40 specialists to begin another organization, initially named Saasbee, Inc. Tragically, the organization experienced difficulty discovering financial specialists. The primary explanation was that market was under impression that videotelephony showcase was at that point soaked and demonstrating no development. Be that as it may, as we realize God consistently has supported the fearless. In June 2011, the organization raised $3 million from WebEx originator, previous Cisco SVP and General Counsel Dan Scheinman, and investors Matt Ocko, Logo of TSVC, and Bill Tai.  In May 2012, the organization changed its name to Zoom. In September 2012, Zoom propelled a beta form that could have meetings with up to 15 video members. In November 2012, the organization marked Stanford University as its first client. In January 2013, by and by the organization raised a $6 million through different speculator like Yahoo Founder Jerry Yang.

Be that as it may, Zoom was as yet not a commonly recognized name in the greater part of Asian nations. The individual clients shared with WhatsApp and constrained video call between two people. At that point the Pandemic strikes began and most of the nations went for lockdown. While we are for the most part thinking how to push forward extraordinarily, guardians and instructors who never have thought of an answer in a Pandemic circumstance as  how the students will begin ,examines how schools will work, how students will show up for private educational costs.

Another saw Mac client constrained into calls without their insight. All these were fixed however a few specialists despite everything believe that the firm has a fairly nonchalant mentality to security.

Alan Woodward, a professor of computer science at Surrey University, told the BBC that a major fix is needed.

“I don’t believe this is something that Zoom can just add to their list of jobs to do in the next 90 days. It’s possible, but this requires a re-engineering of the way they encrypt their calls, so it’s a major undertaking.”

Prof Woodward added: “I would not use Zoom for any sensitive or secret discussions.”
