Are you fatigued by the outdated, unsecure video conferencing options available today? Worried your personal and business conversations aren’t truly secure? Well, move over Zoom and meet Beacon®. Officially launching its free version today, Beacon is a revolutionary video and voice conferencing platform that is the first of its kind with end-to-end encryption and focused on privacy, security and user experience – foundational elements of the multi-billion-dollar videogame industry on which Beacon was created – that will change the way we work, live and communicate.
As the global Coronavirus outbreak forced people around the world to work from home, video and voice conferencing use skyrocketed. This sudden increase in use exposed security gaps and allowed unauthorized access to customer data, which according to BleepingComputer, resulted in “over 500,000 Zoom accounts being sold on the dark web and hacker forums for less than a penny each, and in some cases, given away for free.”
“Video and voice conferencing industries have been forced into accelerated growth, although existing platforms have a surprising disregard for privacy and security and little concern for user experience,” said Angel Munoz, developer of Beacon and founder/CEO of Mass Luminosity, a Dallas-based global technology, research and development company. “Beacon was designed to augment natural interaction through exceptional video and voice communication, while safeguarding confidentiality and protecting user identity. Based on the same augmented reality seen in video games, Beacon pushes technology to the max making you feel as though you are in the same room with another person…getting you as close to a real experience as possible.”
