Slack has introduced new security features that will help organizations protect data, as more employees are working remotely. The new set of features provides administrators more control and visibility over their data thereby making it easier for users to comply with industry or country-specific security requirements.
Slack said it will soon let companies encrypt their internal channels with their own keys as well as Slack Connect channels through which they communicate with external organizations such as suppliers. The platform has introduced enterprise key management (EKM) support for Workflow Builder to enable full encryption of a workflow and more. Slack customers will also be able to store their own encryption keys in a specific data region.
