What is an Out of Band solution.

Protect sensitive parts of the organisation

‘Secure enough’ isn’t true for the most sensitive parts of an organisation.

Prevent further damages from attacks

Incident response teams need an end-to-end encrypted platform on a separate network.

Don’t rely on consumer apps for backup

Business can’t fallback on consumer apps when the primarily communications platform fails.

Remain operational during global outages

A decentralised network delivers mission-critical performance.

High security, mission-critical requirements

Out of Band with that extra element.

Element is a powerful and flexible solution that can be configured for a range of use cases.

Incident response

Cybersecurity teams need to remain operational in the face of a cyber attack, so Element can be configured to run on a separate network. 

With powerful mobile and desktop clients, cybersecurity teams can collaborate in real time whenever and wherever they need.

Mission critical teams

Some parts of a company simply cannot be offline. Element is decentralised to ensure maximum availability for mission-critical performance.

Element also supports non-internet connected environments with a range of low bandwidth connectivity.

Air gapped

Highly sensitive operations may operate within an air-gapped environment so Element can be self-hosted to run as an isolated network.

Element also offers Secure Border Gateways and Cross-Domain Gateways to enforce rules-based networking to protect high-side environments.

Interoperable with primary network

An Out of Band network should not force its users to jump between apps.

Element bridges to traditional apps, such as Microsoft Teams and Slack, so that security conscious teams can stay in Element while communicating with less-sensitive areas of the business.

Endorsed by Forrester for resilient communication.

“Element’s key strengths are its flexibility in supporting various use cases for secure communications, data sovereignty, performance and resiliency in challenging environments.”

Out of Band, not
Out of Control

Secure Out of Band communication has to support corporate requirements, otherwise it’s little better than using WhatApp or Signal. Organisations can configure Element for their needs, including corporate oversight, administration, record keeping for compliance and in-app functionality. If appropriate, Element can also be integrated with Single Sign-On systems.
