Unlimited 4K video meetings for up to
1,500 participants.

User data protection

Microsoft Teams stores user data in OneDrive cloud-based service, and therefore cannot ensure reliable protection of sensitive information from leakage. TrueConf Server is deployed on-premises and provides personal communication security by encrypting media streams shared in the corporate network and storing files locally. This video conferencing platform can also operate offline, providing full control over confidential intra-corporate communications.

User data protection

«TrueConf allows us to hold secure meetings with officials in different ministries, being sure that our data resides within the government network. With TrueConf, we no longer require any other video conferencing system.»

Dr. Vatthana N.

Quality of video communication

In Microsoft Teams, the speed of receiving and sending audio won’t exceed 70 kbps, and video — 1,5 Mbps, regardless of the connection quality. TrueConf is powered by SVC architecture: the server adjusts media streams to changing characteristics of video conferencing endpoints so that each participant in a multipoint conference gets the best image for the device and communication channel used.

User data protection

TrueConf is easy to use and the quality is very good. In Germany there are high data safety requirements and there are only a few conference solutions left, while TrueConf delivered very good and flexible options.

Advanced video layouts

In fact, Microsoft Teams is limited in its video conferencing capabilities: the platform supports only one template for launching broadcasts with a predefined display of participants. TrueConf video communication solution provides conference modes for any scenario, with the ability to customize video layout and manage microphones and cameras of participants.

Advanced video layouts

«TrueConf helps us run effective video meetings. Depending on the meeting’s type, we select one of TrueConf ’s video conferencing modes and communicate without limits. Additionally, thanks to BYOD concept, there isn’t much need for purchasing additional video conferencing equipment.»

Jigme L.

External communications

In Microsoft Teams, teammates usually collaborate in special channels to which you can grant guest access, but such a user can only exchange messages in chat. With TrueConf, you can communicate not only with colleagues within your corporate network, but also with external users without any changes in the available feature set.

External communications

We are using TrueConf for our weekly news show watched live by thousands of avid spaceflight fans on our YouTube channel. TrueConf is the only video conferencing software that is able to create a seamless streaming experience for our viewers by maintaining guests’ positions even when they join and leave the conference.

Multi-vendor interoperability

TrueConf Server incorporates native support for SIP/H.323 protocols and integrates flawlessly with any video conferencing and telephony equipment. In contrast, Microsoft Teams is compatible with a limited hardware fleet and requires a third-party service subscription.

Is there an on-premises version of Microsoft Teams?

No, Microsoft Teams is pure cloud-based software built to work with SharePoint Online and Azure Active Directory. While it is possible to gain some on-prem functionality in hybrid environments, the feature set of Microsoft Teams will be significantly curtailed.

Why shouldn't you use Microsoft Teams?

1. Confusing file structure. All files uploaded to private and group conversations go to the shared file section of the channel. If you try to organize these files by moving into named folders, file links in conversations will break.

2. Limited number of channels. Teams limits users to 200 public and 30 private channels which is quite problematic for enterprises with many teams and departments.

3. Unintuitive navigation. You may find yourself clicking through multiple tabs and sections to locate something⁠. And users with less technical knowledge might have trouble accessing certain features of the app.

4. Imperfect screen sharing. When sharing Teams call window or some other app on your desktop, the screen edges aren’t clearly visible. You can fix this by sharing the entire desktop, but this may violate your privacy. Plus, the app is a bit glitchy when trying to give screen controls to other participants during a conference.

5. Cybersecurity risk. Once you add users to Microsoft Teams, they automatically get full access to all channels and information exchanged.

Is Microsoft Teams free for Enterprises?

Microsoft Teams free tier offers unlimited chats, audio and video calls, 2GB of personal storage, and 10GB for shared files. This platform integrates well with a wide range of team collaboration apps and can unite up to 300 users from inside and outside your organization into a single network.

Note that you can use Microsoft Teams Free for a one-year trial only if you haven't had a commercial Office 365 subscription. Otherwise, you’ll be redirected to a managed account for your existing plan.

Does Microsoft Teams implement Active Directory?

Microsoft Teams supports the same user authentication technologies as Microsoft 365 and Office 365, including cloud (Azure AD) and hybrid (AD DS) scenarios.

 • Cloud. User accounts are created and managed in Microsoft 365 or Office 365 and stored in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

 • Hybrid. User accounts are managed locally in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) forest.
