Rocket.Chat and Gluu announce partnership at All Things Open


October 23, 2018 — Raleigh, NC USA — Live from All Things Open 2018 – Gluu and Rocket.Chat jointly announced today an extensive partnership to collaborate on identity and access management (IAM) and strong authentication for community, enterprise, and institutional customers.

Under the partnership, Rocket.Chat will work with Gluu to identify and support best practices for single sign-on (SSO), two-factor authentication (2FA), user enrollment, and access management in its industry-leading messaging platform.

“Rocket.Chat is the premier open source solution for team communication and the platform of choice at Gluu,” said Gluu CEO Michael Schwartz. “We are excited to work with the Rocket.Chat team to offer organizations around the world a secure and scalable solution for team collaboration and identity and access management.”

Rocket.Chat supports OAuth 2.0 out-of-the-box and can quickly be configured to use an Authorization Server (AS) like Gluu for user sign in. By leveraging open web standards like OAuth, OpenID Connect, and FIDO, organizations can significantly improve account security and reduce the liklihood of password-related hacking incidents.

“We are delighted to work with the amazing team at Gluu to offer our community and customers a robust, industry proven solution for single sign-on (SSO) and two-factor authentication (2FA),” said Gabriel Engel, CEO of Rocket.Chat.
