Pexip and Rocket.Chat Partner to Provide an Integrated Chat and Video Solution for Secure, Data-Sovereign Communications

Delivers a complete collaboration platform for security-conscious organizations that require on-premise deployments

 

Oslo, Norway — June 22, 2022 — Pexip, a leading video communication provider, and Rocket.Chat, the leading open-source communication platform, are collaborating to provide a secure, data-sovereign solution for organizations that require the highest levels of security, such as government agencies. The self-managed communication solution enables private and secure collaboration for on-premises or geo-fenced deployments, a priority for security-conscious organizations concerned about maintaining data control and privacy.

Pexip and Rocket.Chat customers can consolidate their chat messages, video communication and file sharing into a single location while maintaining the security of sensitive and mission-critical data. The partnership between the two companies exemplifies both organizations' long-term commitment to providing innovative solutions in the secure communications space.

As government agencies and public sector organizations embrace digital transformation trends, they need to upgrade their internal processes and services to citizens for better user experiences while ensuring data privacy, security and compliance. A recent Swedish government report identifies solutions that offer a suitable digital collaboration platform for public-sector organizations, either individually or in combination. It assessed whether a richer user experience could be achieved through a combined platform – for example, incorporating video and chat solutions. Rocket.Chat and Pexip were among selected solutions recommended for better functionality and integration capabilities than alternative communication platforms.

"There's an immediate need in the market for an on-premise digital collaboration solution that enables fully compliant and secure chat and video communications. Rocket.Chat and Pexip have come together with a complete solution and a strong commitment for the long-term success of our customers," said Gabriel Engel, CEO and co-founder of Rocket.Chat.

"Our public sector and government customers are especially mindful of data privacy and security when selecting a communications solution. The combination of Pexip's on-premise video communication platform and Rocket.Chat's secure chat functionality provides these customers with the control and compliance they require," said John Thorneycroft, Senior Vice President, Business Management at Pexip.

Interoperability is also a key benefit of the Rocket.Chat and Pexip platforms. Organizations and employees can continue to work together on Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams and Pexip, along with their existing video meeting technology. This results in easier user adoption, simple migration and the choice to continue using the tools that are best suited for the organization. 

Skype for Business Online was retired on July 31, 2021, and organizations on Skype for Business Server may need to migrate to another platform in the near future. For companies that are seeking an on-premise, self-managed and highly-secure option, the Rocket.Chat and Pexip solution is a good fit.
