Enterprise-grade data protection
Trust Slack to keep your data secure and meet your compliance requirements.
Security features for more control, visibility and flexibility
Identity and device management
Ensure that only the right people and approved devices can access your company’s information in Slack with features such as single sign-on, domain claiming and support for enterprise mobility management.
By default, Slack encrypts data at rest and data in transit for all of our customers. We further protect your data with tools such as Slack Enterprise Key Management (Slack EKM), audit logs and integrations with top data loss prevention (DLP) providers.
Slack offers governance and risk-management capabilities flexible enough to meet your organisation’s needs, no matter what they are. This includes global retention policies, custom terms of service and support for eDiscovery.
