There are many messaging tools on the market, but none of them can beat Slack. Slack is an excellent small business collaboration tool. However, it has some disadvantages:
B. No Data Storage:You do not have a choice in storing your data. You cannot migrate your data to another platform if you want to change your team collaboration software.C. Not a Private Server:Slack is not a private server, it is run by another company. That means your data and information are controlled by Slack. If Slack shuts down or stops working, you will lose all your data and you cannot access it anywhere else.D. Compromised Security:Slack’s security is compromised by its own design. There are many channels in Slack that you need to be careful about. If you send any sensitive information into these sensitive channels, it will be seen by everyone who is able to see the channel. So, anyone in your company who can see this channel can read the content of this channel and no encryption is applied to these channels.
The integration of Slack and Mattermost helps solve these issues effectively.
A. Integration of Slack and Mattermost:As we mentioned above that Slack does not encrypt the messages between two users, so there are many companies which have chosen to implement end-to-end encryption for messaging in Slack. But this method is not user-friendly because it requires users to configure a client to use it. The most popular application of end-to-end encryption is PGP (Pretty Good Privacy. So when a user wants to send encrypted message to someone, he or she needs to first send all encrypted messages via PGP and then he can send a message to the intended recipient without encryption. This method is cumbersome and requires too much configuration work for users. So it is not an ideal solution for users.However, there is a way to integrate Slack with Mattermost directly without using PGP or other end-to-end encryption tools. When a team member sends a message in Mattermost, it is automatically encrypted before sending to Slack. The recipient receives the encrypted message in Slack and decrypts it. Therefore, the team members do not need to configure anything for encrypted communication within Mattermost.Mattermost’s server provides an API for developers to build their apps on top of it. The API allows even non-technical users to create new features on Mattermost. In this case, the user can choose what channels to enable end-to-end encryption and which ones not. This is the best way to implement end-to-end encryption without losing any of the advantages of Slack’s integration with Mattermost. Other than end-to-end encryption, Mattermost also offers other features like activity history, audit logs and searchable chat history which help users to keep track of what they have done and what others have sent them as well as follow up actions on every message on Mattermost.
B. Benefits of Integration of Slack and Mattermost:There are several benefits of using these two applications together:
This integration solves all issues for organizations looking for an alternative messaging tool that will replace Slack without losing the advantages provided by Slack. It also integrates well with existing infrastructure because it uses REST API’s; therefore IT personnel do not need any special knowledge or skills in order to integrate Mattermost into their existing infrastructure.
