Four Ways Encryption Can Benefit Your Organization

As organizations look to operate faster at scale, the need to meet regulatory requirements and protect information intensifies. Encryption is critical to a defense-in-depth strategy that can advance security and compliance initiatives. Consider these statistics: 62% of 6,264 security professionals surveyed across multiple sectors in 17 countries claim their organization has an encryption plan that is applied consistently. More than half—55%—say their organizations transfer sensitive or confidential data to the cloud, whether it is encrypted or not. There are no silver bullets in cybersecurity, but properly implemented encryption helps secure data and workloads across multiple cloud platforms, and enhance security ROI.

AWS Wickr is an end-to-end encrypted service that helps organizations communicate securely through one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video calling, file sharing, screen sharing, and more. AWS Wickr can help customers overcome data retention obligations associated with consumer-grade messaging apps, and safely facilitate collaboration. Advanced security and administrative controls help organizations meet legal and regulatory requirements, and build custom solutions for data security challenges.

Information can be logged to a private, customer-controlled data store for retention and auditing purposes. Users have comprehensive administrative control over data, which includes setting permissions, configuring ephemeral messaging options, and defining security groups. AWS Wickr integrates with additional services such as Active Directory (AD), single sign-on (SSO) with OpenID Connect (OIDC), and more. You can quickly create and manage AWS Wickr networks through the AWS Management Console, and securely automate workflows using Wickr bots.
