What is Zoom?

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (abbreviated Zoom and stylized as zoom) is a San Jose, California-based communications technology company. It offers videotelephony and online chat services via a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform used for video communications (Meetings), messaging (Chat), voice calls (Phone), conference rooms for video meetings (Rooms), virtual events (Events), and contact centers (Contact Center), and it also provides an open platform that allows third-party developers to build custom applications on its unified communications platform (Developer Platform).

Who is Zoom’s Founder?

Zoom was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a former Cisco engineer and executive, and its software was released in 2013. Zoom’s revenue growth, as well as its software’s perceived ease-of-use and reliability, resulted in a $1 billion valuation in 2017, making it a “unicorn” company. In 2019, the company became profitable for the first time and completed an initial public offering. On April 30, 2020, the company will be added to the NASDAQ-100 stock index.

After quarantine measures were implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, Zoom’s software usage increased dramatically globally. Its software products have come under fire from the public and the media for security and privacy concerns.
