Dutch ministries show confidence in Sectra's solutions for secure communication

Dutch ministries choose to communicate securely with Sectra’s crypto products. The ministries have now extended their framework agreement with Sectra for another two years. The order is valued at over SEK 10 million.

“The extension of the agreement demonstrates that both the Dutch security agency and the Dutch ministries consider our security solutions efficient for both their organizations and individual users,” 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 highest classification level, SECRET. They 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 with Tiger products for secure mobile and fixed voice communication, and the operation and secure administration of these services, as well as support and customized training for end-users. The Tiger system also enables encrypted data transmission and faxes, which are used frequently between the ministries.

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.
