Wickr and Psiphon's Secure Open Access Now Global


“The new Wickr Open Access feature relies on multiple techniques and thousands of servers across the world. Think of it as a “smart VPN” that relies on an agile and smart access engine that optimizes the Wickr app to keep the best connection among many servers launched at once, as opposed to relying on a single domain front.”
– Michael Hull, President of Psiphon

The phased rollout of to our entire global user community of Wickr and Psiphon’s partnership launch of Wickr(R) Open Access (WOA) is complete. A few weeks ago we launched WOA to our Wickr Enterprise (on-premise) customers.

Seamless Security & Accessibility Anywhere

By adding WOA as a built-in feature to our vetted encrypted communications platform, users no longer have to deploy multiple tools to access information and protect their critical data. Both the unrestricted access and end-to-end encrypted collaboration features are seamlessly available in one single app. When integrated with a corporate SSO mechanism, users can instantly have end to end encrypted messaging, file transfer and calling that is always available and the corporate IT department can have the control and availability it needs when deploying to a global user base.

It’s as simple as flipping a switch 

By simply enabling the feature in settings, users can experience Wickr Open Access (WOA), a global first, to connect seamlessly via end-to-end secure communications and ensuring that no matter where they are in the world their messages, calls and files get through. WOA allows individuals, teams and global enterprises to leverage Wickr’s state of the art encryption on top of Psiphon’s innovative approach to high assurance networking.

The combination of Wickr’s encrypted communications platform and Psiphon’s global infrastructure ensures global corporations have seamless security and accessibility anywhere – even when networks are compromised, restricted or degraded. Learn more about Psiphon.

Wherever in the world work takes you, Wickr Open Access securely connects you with the world.
