Not just partially encrypted

Rocket.Chat is fully end-to-end encrypted, while Mattermost only supports encryption in rest and in transit. This means total protection vs. partial protection of exchanged messages.

Customize more than you could with Mattermost

Mattermost has limited white labeling options. With Rocket.Chat, you can apply advanced white labeling options to adapt the home screen, layout, sounds, and more. In addition, Rocket.Chat gives you more options  to control your workspace with 180+ permissions to create custom roles.

More control over what’s being said

Mattermost doesn’t provide any moderation capabilities. On the other hand, Rocket.Chat’s rich moderation capabilities allow you to identify and report inappropriate messages and flag unsuitable content in advance.

Rocket.Chat gives you more for less than Mattermost

#1 Mattermost alternative for enhanced collaboration

Send audio and video messages

With Mattermost, your collaboration is limited to text messages. Rocket.Chat allows you to communicate the way you want: with text, video, and audio messages.

Receive read receipts

Asynchronous collaboration is easier if you know your messages have been read. Receive read receipts confirming your message has been opened. Mattermost doesn’t give you this option.

Integrate with whiteboards

Mattermost doesn’t allow you to extend your workflow to a whiteboard of any kind. With Rocket.Chat, you can use native integrations with Collaboard and Bluescape to brainstorm virtually.

"At Deutsche Bahn, we chose Rocket.Chat over Mattermost. We chose Rocket.Chat because of the way they’ve always done open source. It was more interesting for us than other free products because it was clear that the major features of it, which are necessary for enterprises, were not being cut off the main code line.”
