Usage

Adding Zoom to the ZeroFOX Platform enables you to get alerts and automatically remediate content using the Alerts page. ZeroFOX can detect meetings that do not meet security best practices. These best practices include:

  • Requiring meeting passwords.
  • Ensuring users cannot join before the host.
  • Confirming the host has waiting rooms enabled which allows selective admittance.

Meetings without these configurations are much more likely to be joined by unwanted parties.

  • Setting this up requires the Remote Workforce policy to be applied for your entities, which will be the default if you subscribe to this service. 
  • By default, it will trigger based if meetings have any of the following settings:
    • Password not required for meeting
    • Waiting rooms not enabled
    • Participants able to join before host
    • If you wish to customize the configuration, you may do so reaching out to [email protected] and we’ll be more than happy to help you customize the settings the platform checks for.
  • The Alerts page will list your alerts for meetings that don’t meet best practices and require follow-up. Each alert shows the email address for the operator of the meeting, when it’s scheduled for, the meeting agenda, and details on the meeting settings. You can email these alerts to someone at your organization to follow up, or contact the operator via email separately.
