AWS Wickr has achieved FedRAMP High authorization in the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region. You can now use Wickr to help protect communications that are subject to FedRAMP High requirements.

Wickr is an end-to-end encrypted messaging and collaboration service with features designed to help you keep communications secure, private, and compliant. Wickr protects one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video calling, file sharing, screen sharing, and location sharing with 256-bit encryption. Every message, call, and file is encrypted on the sender’s device using a unique secret key, and remains secure in transit. No one except intended recipients and your organization can access the content. 

Administrators can create Wickr networks through the AWS Management Console. You maintain 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 a Wickr network to a private data store that you manage for data retention and auditing purposes.
