Mattermost is an open-source collaborative messaging software that is hosted within the DoD’s own cyber infrastructure.
Mattermost is accessible on any device connected to the internet, both government devices on the military network as well as personal devices with any kind of civilian internet access around the globe. Mattermost is an IL-4 approved software that allows FOUO, PII, and mission information with the capability of 2-way file transfer.
Mattermost utilizes the DoD’s PlatformOne (P1) architecture to provide secure, approved delivery of IL-4 data to any device. The P1 structure allows a user to login to hosted web apps using Single Sign On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) such as Google Authenticator. Each user is capable of using either 1) a username + password + MFA or 2) CAC card + pin to log into any P1 hosted software from any web browser and URL. Some applications like Mattermost (MM) even have approved iOS and Android native apps.
Mattermost lives completely within the P1 framework and complies with all federal and DoD security requirements. They operate under the PartyBus continuous ATO, and employ a cybersecurity method known as DevSecOps which bakes in security requirements at every step of the coding, testing, evaluation, and launch process. Mattermost currently operates at Impact Level 4 (IL-4) and each unit is responsible for ensuring their use case is capable of IL-4 dissemination.
Our team can help answer any security questions and provide expanded security & ATO paperwork if requested.
