Our purpose

Our purpose is to represent the interests of European SMEs, which offer products, solutions and services in the field of encryption, encrypted services and related technologies.

Specifically, we have three objectives:

ENCRYPTION BY DEFAULT

Encryption is too often an option chosen by advanced users who want to protect their privacy or their business. Everyone should protect themselves and encryption should be provided by default in tools and apps.

RESPONSIBLE PRACTICES

The alliance engages in a dialogue with authorities confronted with the need of decrypting communications and devices, so that encryption is not perceived as a threat to but as an element of security.

CONTRIBUTE TO UNIFY EUROPE

Encryption Europe contributes to a more united and safer Europe, by developing a common vision on the value and the pragmatic benefit of encryption.
