Microsoft adds new security, privacy, and compliance features to the Microsoft Teams chat and collaboration solution, including end-to-end encryption support for one-on-one voice calls.
Microsoft Teams is a cloud collaboration platform designed to allow an organization's team to stay organized and communicate via text, audio, and video, all in one place.
"End-to-end encryption (E2EE) for 1:1 Teams calls will be available to commercial customers in preview in the first half of this year," Microsoft said at Microsoft Ignite 2021.
"Teams will support end-to-end encryption for organizations to help customers meet their security and compliance requirements by providing an additional option for conducting sensitive online conversations."
Once the E2EE support for face-to-face ad hoc Teams VoIP calls rolls out, customers will be able to enable end-to-end encryption for 1:1 unscheduled calls if the information transmitted requires additional protection.
Teams admins will also be able to designate organization members who can use the new E2EE feature.
"Future updates will be made available to support customers' evolving compliance needs, including expanding to scheduled calls and online meetings," Microsoft added.
