Element's decentralised design solves the three biggest issues with traditional collaboration tools in the workplace.
For Web, Android, iOS, macOS, Windows & Linux
Openness. Unlimited, easy connections with people in internal or external organisations without change requests or special configuration. Element allows instant collaboration with any other Matrix-based app, which delivers incredibly easy federation across complex organisations. Born open, Element (thanks to Matrix) also offers a huge range of bridges to allow easy connectivity to those stuck in traditional centralised systems such as Slack, Signal, Telegram and Microsoft Teams or chat protocols such as IRC and XMPP. It’s why the world’s largest messaging and collaboration deployments use Element.
Control. Element ensures you truly own your conversations by being fully self-sovereign: host it on premise or via Element Matrix Services under your domain. Element provides a path out of shadow IT by giving a user experience in line with the best consumer applications, while assimilating unofficial Element usage into official IT infrastructure. Your messaging and collaboration is safe in your hands, ensuring an audit trail, compliance and data retention policies. And because Matrix is open, Element doesn’t lock you in like other vendors.
Security. Default end-to-end encryption scaling to thousands of users per room, with unique cross-signed device verification to validate participants and confirm who you're really talking to. Element protects against accidental leaks, eavesdroppers and third party interference by ensuring that by default the server cannot see your conversations.
Work with everyone across your entire ecosystem; internal and external. Open and interoperable so others don’t have to be on the same app. No more access issues, jumping between apps or registration woes.
Ownership and control of your data, so you know exactly where it is and who has access. Default E2E encryption and cross-signed device verification to validate participants. Fully audited and compliant.
Be more effective than ever before. Secure messaging, voice and video calls, recording, file sharing, screen sharing, widgets and integrations. For your team, organisation, external partners and customers.
