Service documentation
End-of-contract data extraction

Therefore, the customer will have to download any recorded meetings prior to their termination date by visiting their online user profile, navigating to their recordings and downloading selected recordings to an alternate source.
End-of-contract process

What users can and can't do using the API
The Zoom API provides the ability for developers to easily add Video, Voice and Screen Sharing to your application. Our API is a server side implementation designed around REST, it does not support cross-origin resource sharing or access via a client side web application.

The Zoom API helps manage the pre-meeting experience such as creating, editing and deleting resources like users, meetings and webinars. It also provides access to post-meeting information for tasks such as reporting and analytics. It does not provide access to the in-meeting experience such as current attendee list, who is current speaker or ability to mute participants; if you seek these features please have a look at our SDKs.

Zoom API allows you to manage:
IM Groups
Cloud Recordings (Business and Education)
API documentation
API documentation formats
API sandbox or test environment
Customisation available
Description of customisation
Using Zoom APIs, you can customise your experience by building your own web portal to front end Zoom services and present as a login point to your end users. Zoom service can be completely white labeled if desired.


Independence of resources
Zoom engineers the global network to never exceed 50% capacity. Once capacity begins to approach 50%, Zoom adds additional resources to expand that capacity.


Service usage metrics
Metrics types
The Zoom Dashboard allows administrators on the account to view information ranging from overall usage to live in-meeting data. This data can be used to analyse issues that may have occurred as well better understand how users are holding meetings within your company.

The Meetings section allows you to see the total live meetings as well as past meetings. Past meetings can be exported to a CSV file. This overview will show if audio, video, screen sharing, and recording were being used in the meeting as well. You can also see the license types of each user on your account.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
Change triggers for unique processes and controls are:   Code , Database , Infrastructure , Data.  

Weekly meetings held to request changes that need to be performed during maintenance windows. Change requests are presented, validated, and scheduled. Changes are approved by the Change Manager.  Implementation in production should not be by the same individual who developed the change. When staffing levels do not permit this separation, management oversight and approval of the change and testing process ensure appropriate processes are followed.   Dev and test environments are physically and logically segregated from production. No customer data is used in testing.
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Zoom has a formal Vulnerability Management Plan in place. Zoom performs monthly vulnerability and web application scanning using an external party (Qualys). Scan reports are reviewed by our Security and technical teams and discussed with the engineering and development teams. Validated findings are tracked in our JIRA system throughout remediation.

Zoom has a monthly patch cadence. Zoom will patch all applications, workstations, and servers (virtual or physical) with all current operating system, database, and application patches deployed in our computing environment according to a schedule predicated on the criticality of the patch. Maintenance/patching typically will have no service downtime.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
We have monthly vulnerability and web application scan. Findings are reviewed and validated by our technical and engineering team. Vulnerability rated on severity level and tracked using our JIRA system. Vulnerability fixes are release from our engineering team and follow our formal change management process for deployment to production. Zoom also has DDoS monitoring and Managed service in place. Affected traffic are diverted and filtered through a scrubbing centre.

Zoom responds to incidents as defined within our SOC2 report available upon execution of a mutual NDA.
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
Zoom communicates the incident response policy to internal and external users and instructs users to contact their supervisor and the information security representative if they become aware of a possible security breach. When a potential security incident is detected, a defined incident management process is initiated by authorised personnel. Incidents are tracked through the tracking application, which includes the corrective actions implemented in accordance with the defined policies and procedures.
