Get ready for Skype for Business EOL in 2025

As you prepare for Skype for Business retirement in 2025, you’re considering your options. MS Teams is not the ideal solution for organizations in highly regulated industries like Government and Defense because it doesn’t offer the advanced security needed to control your data and stay compliant with regulations.

The most flexible self-sovereign Skype for Business alternative

Rocket.Chat is a flexible collaboration platform designed for evolving data privacy regulations. With on-premise and air-gapped deployment options, you can stay in total control of your data while enjoying seamless collaboration with colleagues and external partners.

Stay in touch with other MS Teams users

Rocket.Chat lets you connect across platforms. With the MS Teams and Slack bridges, you can message people in other companies and within your organization who still use MS Teams or Slack—think partners, vendors, suppliers, or internal departments. You can also enjoy secure, interoperable, and decentralized real-time communication between Rocket.Chat and any Matrix-compatible applications or servers.

"At Deutsche Bahn, we chose Rocket.Chat over Mattermost. We chose Rocket.Chat because of the way they’ve always done open source. It was more interesting for us than other free products because it was clear that the major features of it, which are necessary for enterprises, were not being cut off the main code line.”
