Aware announced its latest enterprise collaboration integration today, targeting Slack’s massive user base of over 12 million daily active users, including paid subscriptions for more than 65 companies in the Fortune 100.
"Slack is an innovation leader in the collaboration space—we’ve seen a heavy demand for the integration from both existing and potential customers. It was the next logical step in the evolution of our product journey,” said Matt Pasternack, Chief Product Officer at Aware.
With the announcement, Slack customers will now have access to the same Aware capabilities that global companies such as AstraZeneca, Oxfam International and Wipro rely on and trust.
Aware currently integrates with Workplace by Facebook, Microsoft Teams and Yammer, boasting a complete suite of governance and risk management solutions for enterprise collaboration—all from one platform.
Aware’s platform solves common challenges that legal, compliance, information security and human resource departments face, including archiving, monitoring, DLP, eDiscovery, retention and legal holds. Internal communications leaders also benefit from features that streamline cumbersome tasks, such as automated community management, sentiment analysis, insights and trends.
"Aware is rooted in collaboration; our goal is to make leading platforms accessible to everyone by removing common concerns and to create additional value from collaboration via insights,” said Jeff Schumann, CEO at Aware. “We’ll continue to leverage our deep expertise and specialized, proven skillsets in this area as we expand our offerings into Slack and beyond.”
