Theta Lake has launched Meetings Risk Manager, which is the company’s sixth Zoom-certified module in its App Marketplace.
According to Theta, the MRM is the only patented solution for Zoom meeting safety, security posture and configuration drift monitoring, remediation and alerting.
The company claims its MRM is based on a patented, unique set of abilities capable of addressing demand for advanced oversight and visibility into managing the security posture, settings, and activity of Zoom meetings. This technology works without bots, without recording of meeting content, and without retention of meeting content.
In addition, Theta Lake MRM delivers a multi-faceted approach to Zoom security with posture monitoring, configuration drift tracking and enforcement features coupled with risk correlation scoring using meeting behaviour data.
The company provided an example of this. For example, an alert and remediation option can be automatically generated if a positive setting like requiring authentication is changed. A higher risk score and alert can be upgraded for immediate escalation in real time for action if, for example, that authentication setting is changed, and an application desktop is shared in a Zoom meeting where unknown or unauthenticated users are present.
Furthermore, Zoom administrators can use MRM to generate reports on configuration changes over time to understand configuration drift and provide audit reports for security and governance.
Theta said, “Administrators can then expand their visibility into risk scoring of historical meeting data to determine if security settings and high-level meeting attributes have resulted in potential risky scenarios, assess frequency and types of risk that may be occurring, and get real-time meeting risk visibility that keeps the full privacy of the meeting content intact.”
Key features of the MRM include continuous security posture monitoring that easily discovers all Zoom settings and configuration drift management for the long-term tracking and reporting of how and when configurations have changed over time to provide correlation with any potential downstream security or compliance risks.
Also part of the MRM is a new feature impact assessment to notify admins via concise reporting when new Zoom features are rolled out that may require a setting update for better security. Troubleshooting and remediation recommendations for each discovered risk are also provided.
Risk correlation reporting through high-level visibility of Zoom settings matched to meeting environment attributes and behaviour is also part of the MRM, as well as risky vontent and conduct detection allowing a comprehensive approach to conducting deeper security and compliance surveillance on meeting content.
Theta Lake CEO Devin Redmond said, “Organizations are increasingly mature in their deployments and usage of video meetings, but there’s a reason that a recent survey showed 66% of respondents see risk in unmonitored communications. Unified Communication and video meetings are a part of the workplace that is here to stay, and UC operations teams and their security stakeholders need new technology to start putting their security controls and posture into focus.
“The Meetings Risk Manager uses patented technology to quickly get security posture, drift reporting, and advanced, real time risk correlation in the hands of the right teams without tricky privacy issues. Making it easy to turn on at no charge with a privacy-first approach, allows organizations to boost their safety and security confidence in a unified communication-first workplace.”
