Wire Launches Next-Gen Conferencing Platform

October 5, 2020

We are thrilled to finally announce the launch of Wire's next generation conferencing calls with innovative audio and video capabilities.

Built upon a reimagined and reengineered architecture using the latest technologies, the platform marks a new era in video conferencing security by providing enterprise, financial services and government customers with the world’s first completely end-to-end encrypted video environment.

This has been long awaited and we worked hard to address the unprecedented remote workforce globally in supporting them with a productive yet secure conferencing platform. We are committed to helping organisations - especially highly-targeted critical industries - fight the rising cost of cyber crime, which is estimated at over $6 trillion annually. Our secure infrastructure already neutralises the threat of phishing attacks and attempts to steal sensitive data, however the new video capabilities will also prevent video conferencing-based attacks, which have been rife throughout the global pandemic.

Already trusted by 1,800 enterprise, financial services, and government customers, our next generation platform will enable audio and video conferencing with 25 and 12 participants respectively – all of it completely end-to-end encrypted. Our recent industry research has revealed that 88% of professionals believe the most productive video calls involve less than 10 people. The next step is to scale the platform to cater for all conference formats and sizes, adhering to the same standards of secure collaboration.

These new capabilities, which will be fully open sourced, deliver a level of security and privacy that the collaboration industry has foreseen, but hasn’t been available to customers until now.

“Customers are fed up with constant security updates and promises about what will come in the future.” Morten Brøgger, CEO at Wire.

Brøgger continues:" It all just increases the burden of security on employees and doesn’t get to the heart of the problem. There is a clear discrepancy between what businesses have been told is coming and what they need today. If you want to build a safe car you don’t wrap it in bubble wrap, you build in new, preventative technologies that mitigate risk from the start."

Today we are informing both existing and prospective customers that there is a next generation conferencing platform available that has been engineered from the ground up in an entirely new way, which will immediately solve their security and privacy vulnerabilities.

Tomas Nystrom, IT Director at Fortum, a global energy company also added: “As an energy company that deals with a lot of sensitive information, it was crucial for us to invest in technology that safeguards against the rising threat of cyberattacks,”

“Wire was the clear choice as a partner - not only is their collaboration platform secured with the highest level of end-to-end encryption, they are built upon principles of transparency and privacy that many others lack.” Tomas Nystrom, IT Director at Fortum.
