Ministry of Defense in the Netherlands to increase use of secure telephony using equipment from Sectra
The Ministry of Defense in the Netherlands is to order additional encrypted products from Sectra (NASDAQ OMX: SECT B) and will thus make secure communication possible for a larger number of users. The order value totals SEK 2.6 million.
The Ministry of Defense in the Netherlands is a loyal Sectra customer and has a framework agreement with Sectra for deliveries of Sectra’s Tiger products. Security awareness in the Ministry is high and even more employees will now be equipped with a personal Tiger XS to protect voice and data communication up to the highest security level, SECRET. The order also includes Sectra’s infrastructure for the distribution of cryptography keys, which will facilitate the task of system administrators to allocate the correct authority to users.
“In the Netherlands, Sectra’s secure communication products have been used by the Ministry of Defense since 2004 and secure solutions from Sectra have been used by all departments since autumn 2007. It is stimulating to deliver products to a discerning and experienced customer that is at the cutting edge in terms of taking into account the needs of both the organization and the individual,” says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra’s Secure Communication Systems business area.
Sectra’s close cooperation with customers and national security agencies has resulted in the company’s solutions for secure communications being used in a majority of European countries. Users are decision-makers and officials in governments, defense authorities and critical functions of society, such as municipalities, police, customs and rescue services.
