Witkit was built as a platform that allows individuals and businesses to assemble teams and groups within companies to tackle problems collectively. However, it will be remembered as a platform that’s immune to data breaches.
Recognizing that security is one of the biggest concerns for consumers and businesses alike, Witkit officially announced their launch this week with $5 million in funding.
“Our intention with Witkit is to make the first fully encrypted global collaboration platform so that companies and individuals can more easily reap the benefits that socialized teamwork brings to their business challenges,” says Sean Merat, president and CEO of Witkit.
Witkit allows for more speed, flexibility, simplicity, and efficiency to take place between users without compromising on security and privacy. With the built-in propriety method of data encryption, the team can ensure that users’ information is secure at all times, allowing for individuals to be productive without worrying about a data breach.
Not to mention it’s completely customizable to allow for a more tailored collaborative workspace. When a business owner or employee sets up a profile on Witkit, they join different virtual workgroups organized around specific missions or topics called ‘Kits’.
Kits can be private or public, and members can tap into a wide array of services like a single synchronized calendar or file uploading and sharing. And users can take part in multiple kits at once; they’re completely separate from each other to ensure distinct user identities within their projects.
“The vast majority of breaches today happen on a centralized system which contains sensitive user data,” says Merat. “We can confidently say that we’ve minimized most, if not all the risk, to user data being hacked. That is to say that in the unlikely event that the Witkit servers are compromised, there will be no decrypted data to be found.”
