Zoom acquires Keybase as it seeks to enhance video platform privacy

Video communications platform Zoom has announced the acquisition of Keybase as it seeks to enhance the state of privacy and security in its offerings.

The goal is to provide end-to-end encryption on the platform, according to a Thursday press statement. The terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed. Zoom had attracted critics for its security practices even as the platform's user base exploded in an era of social distancing and stay-at-home orders enacted worldwide.
