Element's end-to-end encryption is based on Olm, an implementation of the Double Ratchet protocol popularised by Signal, and extended by Megolm to support large decentralised chat rooms.

Enterprise-grade E2EE functionality.

Element supports search, content scanning, antivirus and data loss prevention (DLP) in an end-to-end environment.

Visible in-room audit bots can be used to capture an official record of discussion and decision-making for regulation and compliance.

A secure open standard for the cybersecurity community.

Element is based on the Matrix open standard, offering native interoperability with any other Matrix-based platform. Many CERTs and similar coordination communities are already on Matrix, so you can talk to your peers securely.

Matrix also has a range of bridges to traditional walled garden apps, such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Signal. Bridging services are available for both cloud and on-premise deployments.

Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralised communication, connecting 40M+ users over 75K+ deployments.

Governed by The Matrix.org Foundation, the Matrix protocol is an open standard with open source implementations, supporting a vibrant developer ecosystem. Element was founded by the team behind Matrix as a way to bring it to the mainstream.
