"Best Open-Source Project" Finalist

November 5, 2019

We are thrilled to be a finalist for 'best open-source project' at DINAcon 2019. Wire is leading the way in bringing secure enterprise collaboration to organizations all around the world and being open-source is a crucial component in achieving our mission to protect organizations' digital assets.

Transparency and open-source

When it comes to protecting a small, large or regulated organization's privacy, we must deliver the most advanced security and be 100% transparent with our product. It is transparency in all we do from our open-source code, to public security audits, to privacy reports and beyond having an impact on businesses, it is an integral part of our efforts in establishing security and privacy standards as a whole.

In July 2016 Wire co-founder and CTO, Alan Duric, announced the open sourcing of Wire client code and said:

“Open sourcing was always part of our initial plan and it took some time to reach this stage. We decided to take the open source path because transparency and community engagement is of utmost importance for any product that has security at its core.”

Industry recognition

It is such a great honor to be recognized by DINAcon as a finalist for best open-source project -further supporting our efforts to provide a product that is secure by design and transparent by choice.

Building on four key values that continue to drive Wire to this day: security, privacy, transparency and user experience, we are proud to share that we are gaining industry recognition on all fronts, winning Cybersecurity Breakthrough’s 2019 award for most secure communications solution and Capterra’s 2019 award for best ease of use.
