The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the face of work worldwide and most jobs have to either adapt to a remote system of working or not work at all, which could ultimately mean its demise.


Zoom and Microsoft Teams have seen a surge in use as they offer people the chance to work and collaborate remotely, from the comfort of their homes.


Before you think of Zoom and its myriad of security challenges as reported, you should consider that Microsoft Teams is also susceptible to security issues.


Perhaps, you should see it this way; you could have the best of security, yet, someone might still try to break in using a method you originally didn’t think about.

Microsoft Teams takes up to 250 people and allows users to present live to up to 10,000 people at once. Users can share meeting agendas before it begins, invite external guests to join a meeting, and access past meeting recordings and notes. They can also schedule meetings using the Teams app or through Microsoft Outlook.


Microsoft says it doesn’t track users’ data on Teams to provide ads. It adds that it doesn’t track participant attention, and will delete all your data at the end of your subscription.


Zoom’s basic free plan hosts up to 100 participants at once. However, the session can only last for 30 minutes before it is cut off. It has varying options depending on the size of your enterprise ranging from $15 – $50 monthly.


In addition, Zoom can take up to 1,000 participants with 49 videos playing simultaneously in a single call on its paid plans. It also supports Outlook, Gmail, or iCal for scheduling and starting meetings.


However, Zoom seems to be bombarded by a myriad of security challenges at the moment. Google, Taiwan, and Singapore have all banned Zoom due to either privacy or security concerns.


While the company CEO, Eric has also acknowledged and pledged to fix the issues, it is still work in progress.
