With Wickr’s latest region expansion, you can now establish an AWS Wickr network in the the AWS Europe (Frankfurt) Region, to help meet data residency requirements and other obligations.

AWS Wickr is an end-to-end encrypted messaging and collaboration service with features designed to help keep your communications secure, private, and compliant. One-to-one and group messaging, voice and video calling, file sharing, screen and location sharing are protected with 256-bit encryption. No one except intended recipients has access to the keys required to decrypt the content—not even AWS—giving you complete control over your data.

Flexible administrative controls allow your Wickr administrators to add, remove, and invite users, and organize them into security groups to manage messaging, calling, security, and federation settings. Passwords can be reset and profiles can be deleted remotely, helping you reduce the risk of data exposure stemming from a lost or stolen device. You can configure and apply data retention to both internal and external communications in a Wickr network, and use Wickr Bots to automate workflows.

With this expansion, Wickr is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Northern Virginia), GovCloud (US-West), Canada (Central), Europe (London) Region, Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Europe (Frankfurt) Region.
