Rocket.Chat has partnered with Bluescape, a mission-ready visual workplace, to provide a reliable solution for secure and unified defense operations. This integration will help defense and federal agencies to securely share and manage mission-critical information, collaborate on mission strategies in real-time, connect with key partners to exchange classified intelligence and protect confidential data from unauthorized access, interception, and tampering. 

The combined solution overcomes today's complex communications barriers, including:

  • Challenges in maintaining data security and privacy: As we all know, in the world of defense, effective communication isn’t just a necessity; it’s a matter of national security. Data breaches compromise sensitive information, operation plans, and national security. So, mission communications need to be completely private since the stakes are so high. 
  • Fragmented communication and lack of interoperability:  When you have globally dispersed units, all operating using different tools and data, it is challenging to establish operational readiness and coordination amongst the units. This creates siloed pockets of information, where important details can fall through the cracks — leading to information gaps, miscommunications and delays.
  • Lack of integrated communication for dispersed forces: Troops on the ground operate in challenging environments. Hence, defense communications involves sharing and accessing data over multiple devices and locations. The lack of a unified picture makes it difficult for the ground troops to establish situational awareness, and handicaps commanders from making intelligence-led decisions.

Unified and secure communication across all classification levels

Adding Bluescape capabilities to Rocket.Chat enables defense personnel to plan missions, discuss strategies, gather ideas and inputs, make decisions and solve problems. It enables teams to conduct planning sessions and real-time operational center activities on a canvas that can be securely accessed from any location

Our platform operates as a centralized, virtual workspace for visual planning and organization, mission-critical information sharing, and live and asynchronous collaboration. It allows defense personnel to have fully non-readable private conversations with end-to-end encryption (E2EE) and restricts access to sensitive information with role-based access control. The reliable video conferencing features enable ground forces to connect quickly with key stakeholders, and provide a clear picture of the battlefield to the command and control system (C2), thus empowering commanders to make intelligence-led decisions

Our collective toolkit is meticulously engineered to help defense organizations enhance operational readiness, facilitate secure messaging, protect mission-critical information, and establish situational awareness.

Together, we provide a shared digital workspace for combined intelligence by enabling defense personnel to bring everything under a single roof—chats, calls, projects, people, tools, planning boards and workflow for a single source of truth to make informed decisions. 

The end result is a unified view that facilitates a comprehensive understanding of operations that empowers commanders to make well-informed decisions faster which is critical to the success of global defense operations. 

Mission-ready security

The joint solution is robust and resilient enough to withstand the demands of constantly changing mission parameters while still being scalable so it can be effective for small teams or entire organizations. We have joined forces to provide defense and intelligence organizations with a secure solution that they can really trust with their data.
