Why MS Teams Is No Substitute for a Secure Messenger
Threema Work and MS Teams enable communication via team chats and offer file sharing and group calls. The dedicated business-messaging app Threema Work additionally protects your corporate data, your trade secrets, and your employees’ privacy.
As Primary Communication Solution
As a Complementary Service
Access and Rights ManagementCompared to MS Team’s complex user management, Threema Work’s approach is rather simple: Adding and deleting users is done centrally using a unique Threema ID for each user. This helps to ensure that employees who leave the company don’t have access to business chats anymore.
What benefits does the MS Teams alternative Threema Work offer?In contrast to Microsoft Teams, Threema Work offers a GDPR-compliant communication channel. The dedicated messenger for companies focuses on the secure exchange of sensitive company data. Since MS Teams is only available as SaaS, your data will be stored in the Microsoft cloud. With Threema OnPrem, however, there’s the option to self-host Threema Work to give you full control over your data.
