The market is continually adapting to ‘The New Normal’ and one of those changes is the use of online meeting platforms.
The COVID-19 outbreak has created a new space for video conferencing, and potentially changed the way people will communicate going forward.
In the span of a few months, video chat has gone from a futuristic-feeling way to keep in touch to an essential part of our daily lives.
A recent article spoke to this saying: “Many of the first companies to build modern video communication systems as we know them were tech pioneers who saw the impact that video conferencing could have across business and personal life alike.
But when cloud computing hit the scene, any company that could develop an easy-to-use tool with a good interface had just as much of a shot of being successful in the space.
In 2020, there’s a huge range of video communication platforms to choose from based on your needs. Some video tech providers have had more use cases with the public over the years.
Social media platforms have incorporated video into their messaging apps so that you can talk face-to-face with the click of a button.
Other video tech systems, like Cisco’s WebEx and the now mega-popular Zoom, mainly were used by businesses to streamline communication with customers and teams in different locations.
Now, they’re getting a lot more traffic.”
Active Companies from around the market with recent developments this week include: Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc., Zoom Video Communications, Inc. , Twilio Inc.
Another White Paper from IDG said: “Most of us don’t have romantic notions of either conference calls or commuting for meetings.
Voice-only conference calls fall short in what they can communicate. You can’t feed off of other people’s reactions, nor have one person effectively lead the group through a document or product sketch being developed in real time.
While in-per-son meetings are ideal, they can take up hours, if not days, of additional time, and they’re extraordinarily costly.
When businesses switch to online meetings, adding video and screen sharing, most, if not all of those complications fade away.
Jason Remillard, CEO of Data443, commented, “Today’s announcement is another key accomplishment for Data443, and continues the development of our Global Privacy Manager product segment that includes a plethora of products that ensure corporate compliance and personal privacy online – for both consumers and businesses alike.
This effort has taken months of work by our dedicated engineering staff, securing certification from the vendor, and enabling us to deliver another world-first product to the marketplace.”
The combination of compliance requirements, massive data collection and storage of both consumer and commercial information, without the ability to scan, parse and understand this data in a massively growing virtual environment, continues to be a significant risk for organizations of any size.
By creating the Data443 Chat History Scanner, we saw a “blue ocean” opportunity in creating a simple, quick and easy way to meet these challenges, while aligning Data443 with the global leader in online video communications.
“Being on the first page of security and compliance products in the App Store is another notch in our belt as we continue to deliver products for a wide range of SaaS information providers on many platforms.
Being distributed and available on multiple providers is part of our new approach to expand our business and reach new potential customers.”, concluded Mr. Remillard
