Bengaluru: State Health and Family Welfare Department has stopped using the Zoom app for its daily video press conference amid the COVID-19 lockdown since April 20 and has transitioned to Cisco Webex, an official said on Tuesday.
The decision to stop using the Zoom app for video press conferences comes in the light of recent central government caution on using the Zoom app which is purported to be unsafe.
A health official who shares COVID data with journalists every day informed, “Dear all, we will not use the Zoom app for media briefing from Monday. We will be using the Cisco Webex meeting.”
Incidentally, global software major Infosys also deployed Webex to conduct its virtual Q4 financial results press conference on Monday.
Meanwhile, Google Meet, part of G-Suite is witnessing more than 2 million new users every day amid COVID-19 lockdown, following millions working remotely from home.
G-Suite, a host of Google productivity apps comprising Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Calendar, Meet and others enable teams to connect and collaborate remotely.
“Google Meet is built on Google Cloud’s secure-by-design infrastructure to help protect user data and safeguard privacy,” said Mark Johnston, Google Cloud, Asia Pacific, Head of Security, Networking and Collaboration Specialists.
