Check the benefits of on-premises deployment with TrueConf:

On-premises
All intra-corporate communications are stored locally on your servers, inaccessible to third parties.
TrueConf administrators, representatives, and employees don’t have access to customers' meeting & chat history as it is securely encrypted.
Each TrueConf Server instance serves only one organization, so it is unlikely to fall under hacker attacks.
Your private communications cannot be shared with security or law enforcement agencies, as all data is stored on your media with limited access.
Cloud-based
Users’ personal information is stored on remote cloud servers, which may put a risk of sensitive data leakage.
Cloud service employees can access customers' databases as they’re processed unencrypted.
Confidential data can be leaked due to cloud service vulnerabilities or hacked with intercepted username and password.
As cloud storages are managed by third-party administrators, your data can be obtained by interested parties even without your knowledge.

FAQ

Is there an on-premise 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.
