Four levels of security – TOP SECRET, SECRET, CONFIDENTIAL and RESTRICTED – define how sensitive information is to be handled and the potential damage that its disclosure could cause. Communication of information that has been classified at these security levels requires that the communication equipment be reviewed and approved by an independent security authority.

Earlier versions of Sectra Tiger/S 7401 have also been approved by EU member states and individual nations, and Sectra is the only mobile crypto supplier with EU-approved solutions at this level.
