Vancouver startup Witkit launched today with $5 million in seed funding for its centralized collaboration platform where users can communicate freely and securely.
Witkit allows individuals and businesses to easily assemble teams and groups within industries, companies, and departments to tackle projects and solve problems collectively, with the safety and security of knowing their data cannot be breached.
“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,” said 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 our propriety method of data encryption, we can ensure that users’ information is secure at all times, allowing for individuals to be productive without worrying about a data breach.”
According to The Next Web Witkit’s already signed up 400 companies during its closed testing phase including teams at Facebook, Accenture and Zendesk.
Witkit will offer the first 50,000 people who sign up for the platform with 50GB of free data-encrypted storage and all available applications for free.
