StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTC PINK: SFOR), a cyber security company that provides next-gen cyber, privacy & data protection solutions for home and business users, today announced SafeVchat™, the first video conferencing platform built with security and privacy as the leading priority, is available cost-free for public and private K-12 school districts and higher education academic institutions hosting this springs’ commencement ceremony virtually and/or offering a live stream of the event.
Classrooms around the country have been increasingly bombarded by video conferencing-related cyber-attacks or so-called “Zoom bombs,” with nearly 75 percent of all such incidents occurring in high schools and colleges. These are incidents where unauthorized individuals gain access to meetings and often share inappropriate and offensive content, effectively disrupting the lesson or presentation. While video conferencing has been a convenient means of communication throughout the pandemic, the reality is that most of these platforms are vulnerable and were not built with security as a leading consideration. SafeVchat is the first video conferencing platform designed with a cybersecurity kernel and engineered to keep communications secure and privacy intact.
“Too often big celebrations and critical life moments are being ruined by unwanted hacker attacks during video conferencing sessions,” Said George Waller, Co-Founder of StrikeForce Technologies. “A graduation is one of the most important events in a student’s life, and we want students, their parents, and faculty across the country to be able to celebrate virtually this year without interruptions or unwanted intruders sharing vulgar content.”
