Sectra presents security solution for Android telephones
Sectra is taking the next step to satisfy its users’ requests for secure communication when using various smartphone and tablet models. This will be facilitated by implementing Sectra’s security solution for mobile IP telephony, the Sectra Panthon, on the Android technology platform. Customers will be able to receive deliveries as early as during the first half of 2012.
“In close cooperation with our customers and end-users, we have further developed our products to be able to offer effective and future-proof solutions that meet the demands of today and tomorrow within secure communication,” says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra Communications AB.
Sectra Panthon is a security solution for mobile IP telephony that functions equally well with 2G and 3G networks and can enable secure communication essentially everywhere. The security solution is hardware based in the form of a smart card that is installed in the telephone. During the year, it has received security approvals from the Dutch National Agency for Communication Security, the EU and NATO.
Sectra’s close cooperation with customers and national security agencies in many countries has resulted in the company’s solutions for secure communications now being deployed in 17 European countries, in the EU and NATO. Users are decision-makers and officials in governments, defense authorities and functions critical to society, such as municipalities, county councils, police, customs, rescue services and the coast guard. A shared demand from all of these is the ability to use security-approved products and to communicate securely, while placing stringent demands on flexibility and mobility.
