Mattermost, a secure collaboration platform for technical teams, announced a solution for Microsoft Teams to speed technical workflows. Mattermost for Microsoft Teams is the company’s answer for enabling technical users to stay connected to the Microsoft Teams platform while collaborating in a customized technical collaboration environment, integrated with hundreds of bespoke tools and automation.
Central IT organizations deploying Microsoft Teams as an all-employee meeting and messaging solution face an impossible task of centrally supporting technical teams that need a high volume of bespoke security, customization and automation needs for mission-critical workflows connecting to sensitive systems.
Mattermost for Microsoft Teams enables central IT organizations to provide an extended customization experience for technical and operational teams while staying integrated into the Microsoft 365 all employee platform.
Key features include:
- Secure, highly customizable team messaging extension using Microsoft Teams with shared channels and integrated voice, video, screen share and calendar across the Microsoft Teams and Mattermost experiences, plus unified user management and authentication through Azure Active Directory and Active Directory Federation Services Single-Sign-On. The extension enables Microsoft Teams users to connect to hundreds of technical and developer systems, as well as custom in-house tools using their technologies of choice.
- Private communications mode for sensitive security and technical IP where customers can retain full data control of all messages and files sent, which can be stored outside of Microsoft Teams in customer-controlled encrypted databases on private clouds or public clouds including Azure, AWS and GCP.
- Business continuity mode for technical teams during Microsoft Teams outage where the Mattermost for Microsoft Teams can be deployed on private or public cloud infrastructure independent of Azure to maintain communications and security and resiliency functions during an outage on the Microsoft 365 platform.
Mattermost for Microsoft Teams is available to enterprises with more than 2,500 employees with a minimum of 500 technical or operational staff members.
