(Reuters) – Zoom Video Communications Inc (ZM.O) on Wednesday named former Salesforce.com Inc (CRM.N) security executive Jason Lee as its chief information security officer.

Lee will assume the role from June 29, the video conferencing company said.

Prior to Salesforce, Lee was a security engineering executive at Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) for 15 years, according to his LinkedIn profile here

Zoom’s announcement comes as the company is nearing the end of its 90-day security plan announced earlier in April in response to safety and privacy concerns on its fast-growing video-conferencing app.

Lee will lead Zoom’s security team and report to Aparna Bawa, chief operating officer, the company said.
