Founded and operated by former government and military intelligence professionals in 2009, Qintel’s commitment to uncovering data hidden in the depths of the dark web has made it the gold standard in threat intelligence for many Fortune 100 companies and essential government organizations.
“As former employees from federal law enforcement, the intelligence community, and the military, Qintel understands the need for enterprise-federated, secure communication messaging capabilities. When searching for our company’s messaging application we evaluated the market thoroughly and while there are some excellent capabilities available, none of them offer the enterprise security and flexibility that Wickr does. Qintel has always enjoyed a solid relationship with Wickr. We have found them to be very transparent with their technology and wanting to make their products more secure and effective. We not only use Wickr for individual and group secure communications, but also take advantage of Wickr’s bot features to automate threat intelligence and other critical information.”
