Secure mobile phone for Dutch military

Sectra : 13 March, 2014  (Application Story)
Sectra will supply the Dutch Ministry of Defence with mobile communications equipment with built in encryption for security
Secure mobile phone for Dutch military

The Dutch Ministry of Defence has signed an order with IT and secure communications company Sectra for the encrypted mobile phone Sectra Tiger 7401. The device is used to protect voice and data communication from eavesdropping, also by other countries’ Security Agencies. The Ministry and Sectra have also extended their existing framework agreement for secure communication solutions for another two years. The order value is estimated to EUR 580,000.

The extended framework agreement with Sectra encompasses service and maintenance for the secure communication systems already in use at the Ministry. It also includes an option for Sectra Panthon, which is a smartphone app for secure voice and data communication and text messaging. Since Sectra Panthon and Sectra Tiger 7401 have been approved for different security classification levels, the individual security needs of the Ministry’s users will be easier to match.

“The recent eavesdropping disclosures once again show the need for more secure communication systems. Unprotected telephone calls and messages pose a security threat to individuals, organizations and nations,” says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra’s Secure Communications business area. “The Ministry has shown high security awareness for many years and this agreement ensures that the Ministry can continue to keep its national secrets secure, in the best possible manner.”

The Dutch Ministry of Defence has been using Sectra’s secure communication products since 2004. The products are used by defence force branches, such as the Royal Netherlands Navy, the Royal Netherlands Army and the Royal Netherlands Air Force, as well as the central defence command.

The Sectra Tiger 7401 is a secure mobile phone, designed for ease of use. It has been developed for people with strict security requirements, who need to communicate securely when they are away from the office or travelling. This phone meets their requirements for flexibility and mobility. It is easy for new users to understand, and ensures secure voice and data communications as well as text messages. Sectra Tiger 7401 provides transparent interoperability between national, EU and NATO domains and is SCIP-compatible (Secure Communications Interoperability Protocol), ensuring seamless functionality with other suppliers' products.

Sectra Tiger 7401 is approved up to and including the SECRET classification level by the Dutch security agency NLNCSA.
