Looking for a Skype for Business replacement?
In 2021, Skype for Business was retired, and Microsoft Teams was announced as its official replacement.
This left companies that value data privacy and used the on-premises version of Skype with the question:
Is MS Teams really [.c-red]the best alternative[.c-red] to Skype for Business?
If you’re a privacy-conscious company, the answer is no.
MS Teams lacks on-premise hosting capabilities and mission-critical data security features, including E2E encryption and ISO 27001 certification.
To put it shortly: Skype for Business is no longer an option — and your new chat tool shouldn’t fall behind.
Here are 5 reasons why Rocket.Chat is the best choice if you’re leaving Skype for Business
You can deploy Rocket.Chat on your premises
Your data was yours before; your data will still be yours now. Rocket.Chat’s on-premise offerings can be hosted entirely behind your firewall or even on an air-gapped network.
Rocket.Chat offers fully integrated voice and video capabilities
With Rocket.Chat’s comprehensive set of native integrations, you can consolidate chat messages and video conferencing in your workspace.
Ultimate data privacy and sovereignty
Talk to anyone, anywhere — without leaving Rocket.Chat
