AWS Wickr now allows you to establish a network in the AWS Europe (Stockholm) region to help you meet data residency requirements, and other obligations.

AWS Wickr is an end-to-end encrypted messaging and collaboration application that helps public and private sector organizations keep internal and external communications secure, private, and compliant. AWS Wickr protects one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video calling, file sharing, screen sharing, and location sharing with 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption. Customers have full administrative control over data, which includes addressing information governance polices, configuring ephemeral messaging options, and deleting credentials for lost or stolen devices. You can log both internal and external conversations in an AWS Wickr network to a private data store that you manage, for data retention and auditing purposes.

AWS Wickr is available in the AWS US East (Northern Virginia), AWS GovCloud (US-West), AWS Canada (Central), AWS Europe (London & Frankfurt), AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) and now in AWS Europe (Stockholm).
