Wickr Is the Way to Communicate Securely

December 17, 2020 / Dcode

Infamous data breaches like Equifax in 2017 and company abuses of data like Snapchat in 2019 highlighted the significant risks posted by inadequate security protocols.

These incidents have illustrated the value of tools like Wickr, a secure, end-to-end encrypted collaboration platform delivering to the enterprise and federal sectors with world-class security and compliance capabilities. Unlike insecure consumer messaging tools like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, Wickr operates on a “zero-trust” strategy, meaning that service providers can’t access communications, and even in the case of a breach, Wickr servers cannot leak user communications, as they are undecipherable in transit and deleted upon delivery.

Wickr is designed to protect the most critical of communications, whether it be valuable company IP or important information central to U.S. national security.

Wickr’s patented digital security bubble ensures that nobody can view the content of your messages or access your information. Wickr’s end-to-end encryption does not rely on centralized private decryption — instead, the data goes through salted cryptographic hashing both on the user ID and on the device, and is encrypted in transit to ensure that it is never stored anywhere in plain text.

Wickr’s four security solutions have features specifically designed for different audiences — from business collaboration and communication, to compliance, to encrypted communications. All solutions map back to the company’s mission of providing secure, end-to-end encrypted collaboration for individual users and organizations across the enterprise and federal markets.

What makes Wickr unique, though, is its compliance capabilities. Maintaining the strongest possible security doesn’t mean you can’t stay in compliance. Leveraging Wickr Enterprise, system administrators have full record-keeping capabilities – enabling even sensitive industries like finance, healthcare, and government to leverage Wickr’s world-class security.

Another solution, Wickr RAM, was designed specifically for and accredited by the DoD and is compliant with even the strictest government requirements and regulations. Wickr RAM allows for secure communication in even the harshest environments, and is one of the only tools with “full functionality to meet all security criteria outlined by the National Security Agency (NSA).

Wickr RAM has provided game-changing solutions for large federal agencies like the DoD and U.S. Air Force, delivering a compliant and secure solution that eliminates the issue of shadow IT caused by insecure communications platforms like WhatsApp.

Wickr works with organizations across industries to help enterprises protect their most critical communications and stand better prepared for an increasingly complex adversarial climate. By deploying Wickr Enterprise, financial organizations with complex compliance requirements like Valley National Bank are provided with the highest levels of end-to-end encrypted communications available.

Wickr’s end-to-end encrypted communications solutions provide enterprises, federal agencies, and individual users with an essential first line of defense needed to combat increasingly complex attacks by hackers. Wickr’s powerful encryption, coupled with its unmatched compliance capabilities, is helping organizations of all sizes protect their most critical information from threats.
