Anti-eavesdropping technology agreement extended

Sectra : 09 September, 2013  (Application Story)
Holland has extended its agreement with Sectra for a further two years for the protection of communications systems from eavesdropping
Anti-eavesdropping technology agreement extended

The Dutch ministries have extended their framework agreement with Sectra for another two years.  The agreement encompasses Sectra’s Tiger products used to protect voice and data communication from eavesdropping, including Tiger 7401 which was recently approved for the high security level SECRET. The order is valued at more than SEK 10 million.

“The recent media focus on Edward Snowden and the US surveillance program Prism has increased understanding of the importance of using advanced secure communication solutions to protect individuals, organizations and nations from advanced kinds of eavesdropping. The Dutch ministries have shown high security awareness for many years and this agreement ensures that Sectra and the ministries can continue to secure national secrets in the best possible manner,” says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra Communications AB.

Since autumn 2007, all Dutch ministries have been using Sectra Tiger for their communication up to the high classification level, SECRET. The Sectra Tiger 7401, which is included in this agreement, was recently approved by the security authority in Netherlands for secure voice and data communication at the high security level SECRET. The enhanced interoperability of the Tiger 7401 satisfies the users’ high demands for flexibility and mobility. In a single device, it provides secure communication and transparent interoperability between, for example, national and EU domains.

The Dutch ministries purchase secure communication as a service known in the Netherlands as VECOM, which is used for both national and international communication. This entails that Sectra delivers a total solution featuring Tiger products for secure mobile and fixed voice communication along with fax and data transmission, and the operation and secure administration of these services, as well as support and customized training for end-users.

Sectra’s close cooperation with customers and national security agencies in many countries has resulted in the company’s solutions for secure communication now being deployed in 17 European countries, in the EU and NATO constellations. 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.
