In January, we introduced HipChat Server, offering a packaged version of HipChat that runs behind your own firewall. That means it’s your HipChat, your way. All your team’s data stays safely behind your firewall, at the hands of your own IT team.
Because control is excellent.
But at a time when more and more software companies are offering cloud solutions, people often ask us, “What role does a Server deployment play for teams?” and “Why is it important?”
And the truth is, the answer varies. Depending on the unique challenges and needs of your company, either Cloud or Server could be the best option. But what is unique about HipChat Server is that it gives you the controls to secure your data any way you wish.
For something as important as internal communications, growing companies have to think about things like identity management (who’s logging in), feature controls (who gets to see what), audit compliance (what records do we keep), and more.
On top of all of this, companies must decide how they will manage how their data is stored. Should they handle the security and maintenance of servers internally or let a third-party service take care of it? Most communication tools don’t give you a choice.
By offering HipChat Server, we give you the option to choose how you want to host your internal communication, depending on the requirements of your own company.
We aim to fulfill your team’s communication needs and offer the best experience for your business, and that includes your feeling secure about your team’s data.
If you’re on HipChat Cloud, our cloud servers meet industry standards for security and reliability. But if your company is more comfortable putting faith on its own internal security teams, you can deploy HipChat behind your own firewall on your own servers. Communicate with the confidence that your communication data is housed under the same security protocols as the rest of your company data.
Hundreds of companies – including top dogs like Audi, Cisco, and American Express – use HipChat Server everyday to communicate with their teams. Find out if this is the best option for your company.
