Sectra Tiger approved for NATO SECRET
The Hague, The Netherlands – February 16, 2017 – NATO has approved the Dutch secure mobile phone Sectra Tiger/S 7401 for use at the NATO SECRET level. The solution thus meets the strict requirements on security imposed within the NATO organization for the communication of classified information. The solution has already been approved by the EU for use at the EU SECRET level. This means that two of the leading actors for international cooperation have now approved the solution, thus increasing the potential for secure pan-European dialog – for example, with respect to crisis preparedness.
The ability to transfer information quickly and securely, without the risk of eavesdropping, can be vitally important for authorities, defense organizations and critical societal functions.
