The most secure way to adopt ChatOps workflows

ChatOps is an increasingly popular way of working that brings people, files, conversations and tools together via an enterprise messaging workspace to increase organizational agility and accelerate developer productivity.

Organizations that adopt ChatOps workflows, however, need a secure messaging platform that creates a high-trust environment that protects sensitive data (e.g., intellectual property, cryptographic keys and customer-specific information).

To this end, we’re pleased to announce that, together, GitLab and Mattermost deliver a secure ChatOps solution that is perfect for privacy-conscious organizations that use self-hosted GitLab instances.
