Why Choose Troop Messenger On-Premise for Secure Messaging

Right from the mandatory compliance training that takes place in the regulated industries such as banking, finance, manufacturing, defense, government entities, and others that help learn the practices of how to process and store the organizational data, securely, to exchanging the day-to-day office work communication, you need a secure messaging tool for uninterrupted and safe communication.

Although more and more solutions are hosted on cloud-based SaaS, these days. However, on-premise solutions still have their own sheen and space across the industries where data privacy is of utmost importance. 

Before we move on to know about the on-premise delivery model of Troop Messenger, let’s have a quick lookout as to who others have such kind of self-managed deployments and who doesn’t! 

Indeed, there are tools such as Mattermost, Mesibo, and others that offer on-premise but are limited in providing the basic collaboration features. Though they stay as the big-named tools of the collaboration space, Slack and Microsoft Teams don’t offer on-premise deployment.
