At the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards Wire is in the final for two awards in business categories:

  • Fastest growing cybersecurity company
  • Best cybersecurity startup

We are proud that the industry recognizes the commercial success of what we are doing at Wire. – Rasmus Holst, CRO

Meanwhile, the strong product offering that won Capterra's "Best ease of use" and Techcrunch's "Top Pick" in 2019 is also in the running. The core value proposition of protecting Enterprise data while providing modern and easy to use collaboration continues to impress. The categories Wire contests as a finalist are:

  • Encryption
  • Zero-Trust
  • Open-source security

The three awards are very close to Wire's ethos. In the case of encryption – we built our architecture to always provide the strogest protection of digital assets, whether that is messages, voice calls, video conferences, file-sharing or integrations. For zero-trust, we want out customers to trust that information remains theirs - that Wire cannot see the valuable and sensitive information organizations share. Open Source is our heritage and in the age of privacy concerns we see it as an advantage and the best way to ensure our customers know that we keep our promises.

The whole team at Wire feels a sense of achievement when the industry acknowledges the work we do in bringing secure collaboration to the market. And the fact that the awards are so close to the values we stand for makes it even more special. – Alan Duric, CTO & Co-founder

The team is now awaiting the announcement of the final winners and know that there is still a strong competition to overcome. We also know that as a challenge in the market and paving new ways to combine security and collaboration, our customers want to see us be awarded - reassuring them that they have made the right choice for the future - and when we look at the categories we are in the final for - these match why customers continue to choose Wire.

We all know there is still one game to play - but Wire is a winning proposition and a winning team - so while I wish the best of luck to all the competition - I am sure Wire will take home trophies. - Morten Brogger, CEO

The final results will be announced on the 18th of February, 2020.
