How to Conduct Safe & Secure Video Calls with Adeya
Finding safe and secure video call software that provides your business with the high-levels of protection needed can be a challenge for organisations, especially if they are not informed on the risks involved, as many platforms have security protocols that do not lend themselves well to the business environment. By 2021, cyber-crimes are expected to cost businesses $6 trillion annually, with 68% of business leaders citing cybersecurity risks are increasing. With the news in March that malicious files with “Zoom” in their name jumped by 2000% within one month, the concern is that whilst popular video sharing platforms like Zoom are being relied upon both socially and economically, there has been a huge surge in cyber criminals wanting to exploit that.
Using an encrypted, secure service such as the solutions provided by Adeya, is a way to ensure you can begin to run your business online with security and end-to-end encryption (E2E) at every stage, including video calls that are as secure as you need them to be.
Compliant Secure Video Calls using Secure Modern Solutions
Remote working was once deemed impossible by several business owners as specific access to files and documents was just not obtainable from the comfort of our own homes. However, the last few months of the pandemic have forced the hand of many business leaders to embrace it to survive. Video conferencing suddenly became a normality for many remote working, with Zoom having a 535% rise in daily traffic to its download page within a month. It was only a matter of time before its popularity became a target for hackers, with the FBI reporting in March that video hijacking or “Zoom-bombing” was on the rise. Add to this that the end-to-end encryption that was advertised by the platform was not actually possible at the end of March, and will only be introduced in July, means many months of unencrypted use.
Adeya’s security features mean your business can benefit from military-grade security with end-to-end encryption and seamless integration.

Stay Secure & Productive
It’s predicted by the end of 2020, security services will account for 50% of cybersecurity budgets, with cloud-delivered security becoming the preferred model. It has never been more important to implement a secure platform that ensures your team can still work productively without worry of a potential cyber-attack. With the Adeya On-Cloud security protocol and its fast deployment time, you can rest assured you have your data shielded with the best of Swiss data storage when taking advantage of our products. As a company, we pride ourselves on providing AES-256 encryption as well as audit trails, logs, and administrative controls for your complete control over every aspect of file-sharing.

We also provide at-rest encryption for all messages, text, voice calls, notes and contracts as standard, allowing you peace of mind as a business owner, particularly with a workforce that is working remotely.
Challenges Presented by Remote Working
Having employees work away from the office means using less secure networks to work from. If a VPN is not being used, it leaves not just the employee exposed but also the company. Using any video calling platform that is less than secure opens up to ransomware attacks and puts your company in an unnecessary risky position. To counter this, organizations need to implement an up to date and strong data policy to ensure their employees are aware of the risks and the settings they need to put in place to protect any meeting links, passwords and personal meeting IDs. If a leading video conferencing platform is used like Adeya, this is all kept as secure as possible and controlled by the administrator to ensure only those authorized are within the meeting room. This goes for not just information shared via video, but also any files shared through messaging. According to research by Varonis, 53% of companies found over 1,000 sensitive files were open to every employee, with overexposed data a common security issue.
By putting clear security policies in place, especially with ongoing remote working and video conferencing, your company can ensure only necessary information is shared with authorized employees and minimise the risks.
