As the world has transitioned most meetings, including business, educational and even social, to a virtual format, security has become a serious issue. Some teleconferencing solutions have proven to be easy to hack, as news of “Zoombombings” has proliferated. As a result, many technology providers have rushed to fill the gaps in security in order to ensure that videoconferences remain safe from threats and annoyances.

Beowulf is a Singapore-based business-to-business platform that provides communication services via a decentralized cloud network of computing resources worldwide. The goal is to allow any business to rapidly integrate communication capacities into their applications without the need to build their own infrastructure from the ground up. By combining with blockchain for payment system, Beowulf brings in transparency for all users and business clients due to the recording of each transaction on the blockchain.

Now, the company has released QUICKOM by Beowulf, an end-to-end encryption solution for enterprise communications. Built upon a reimagined and reengineered architecture, this QUICKOM release provides enterprise customers with an unrivaled end-to-end encrypted video conference suite, which allows them to host meetings on their own servers or data centers, said the company. By locating on a decentralized cloud communications platform, QUICKOM offers a suite of services encompassing corporate communication solutions, call center, as well as unified communications with a focus on privacy and user data protection.

The result is a solution that can help organizations -- especially highly-targeted critical industries with strict regulatory compliance including finance, healthcare and governmental agencies -- fight the rising threats of eavesdropping and attempts to steal sensitive meetings data, which have been rife throughout the global pandemic. Users are able to communicate and collaborate with up to 1,000 participants on a single video meetings call, while also being able to collaborate, organize schedules, share files and much more, knowing their meetings data will be secured and protected from external cyber threats.

"It is incredibly important for us to create a product that is truly end-to-end to protect the user's private communications,” said Beowulf CEO Dr. William H. Nguyen in a statement. “Our policy is very simple: your communication data should be confidential, and it should be protected by your organization with no chance of being eavesdropped by the service providers. Companies that exploit user data and violate their privacy policies will surely be on the wrong side of history, and we're contributing our part to providing an alternative to these practices.”
