The government is now mandating both public and private organizations to work from home due to the public health risk. While getting up and running has been everyone’s number one priority, compliance with security best practices and regulations is becoming a daunting challenge. In many cases organizations and end users do not know how to comply with security requirements when working remotely. Furthermore, standard collaboration and communication tools simply use TLS or other standards that do not meet modern security requirements and regulations.
To help, Wickr has increased the size of Free Wickr Pro networks to 30 to provide easy access to the average classrooms, collaborative projects and executive teams. Wickr will also support larger organization wide deployments to ensure critical work is being protected no matter the size of the organization. Further, .mil, .edu and .gov organizations will have opportunity to go far beyond 30.
The key features from Wickr Pro that will be available to customers include:
- Secure direct messaging and group conversations
- Secure Rooms for projects and teams
- Secure file sharing and file storage
- Secure voice and video calling with screen sharing
- Secure connectivity with millions Wickr users worldwide
- Administrative controls and integrations – i.e. SSO, 2FA, etc.
Wickr Pro was built to provide enterprise customers the same security found in consumer apps with enterprise controls for large scale deployments. Suddenly, the workforce is moving to products that claim to be encrypted, but browser-based solutions and apps that provide encryption known as TLS fall well short of most modern security policies and procedures. Wickr Pro customers are groups, agencies and companies who have real data security obligations and cannot use products with weak encryption.
Employers and employees from any organization now have fast, free and easy access to Wickr Pro – the only true secure collaboration platform that offers end users strong end-to-end encryption and enterprise administrators the ability to deploy at scale in regulated industries. Free access to a secure tool like Wickr Pro protects sensitive workflows such as mergers and acquisitions, financial data, tabletop exercises, IP address, executive communications, important quarterly transactions, and critical partner discussions.
