In September 2021, MURAL gave teams around the world the ability to bring a shared collaboration space directly to any channel, chat, meeting invite or live video meeting with the launch of the MURAL app® for Microsoft Teams . Mural’s integration into Microsoft Teams gave meeting participants from global enterprises to nascent startups the ability to collaborate visually using digital sticky notes, images, drawings, diagrams, and more. MURAL has also been marked as an early adopter for Microsoft’s new collaborative application capabilities for the modern workplace, which integrate MURAL seamlessly into Microsoft Outlook and Office 365 platforms.
MURAL continuously invests in best-of-breed security practices and compliance controls to meet the evolving needs of global businesses. Mural’s Microsoft 365 certification builds on the company’s existing capabilities, including active SOC2 Type 2 and ISO 9001 certifications.
