Sectra is the only provider with mobile crypto devices approved at this level by the EU. Using the Sectra Tiger/S 7401, authorities and officials in the EU and Member States can securely communicate classified information over ordinary mobile networks, in several security domains, without fear of interception.
In one single device, the Sectra Tiger/S 7401 enables secure communication and transparent interoperability in and between different organizations such as the EU, NATO and a member state. The purpose of such multi-domain functionality is to provide flexibility in terms of communications while maintaining the integrity of the different domains. A Dutch user, for example, can thus make secure calls to colleagues within the Dutch ministries, the EU and NATO, following the proper arrangements.
The first Sectra Tiger/S 7401 units are currently being placed in operation within the EU institutions.
“The Sectra Tiger system has been developed with a pan-European interoperability perspective, enabling secure communications within and between Member States and the EU and NATO. The EU approval for the Sectra Tiger/S 7401 with its multi-domain capabilities is a vital building block in making Sectra Tiger the de facto standard for secure communications within Europe”, says Dr. Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra Communications AB.
Four levels of security – TOP SECRET, SECRET, CONFIDENTIAL and RESTRICTED – define the handling of classified information and the potential damage that its disclosure could cause. SECRET is the second highest classification and means that the information would cause long term major negative effects on national or EU-related security if revealed.
Sectra Tiger®/S 7401 has been developed to provide mobility and flexibility to those individuals and organizations handling high-level classified information. It has been designed to resist attacks from any source, including intelligence organizations of foreign states, making it the optimal choice for foreign missions and government organizations on a ministerial level.
Sectra Tiger/S 7401 is approved for communications up to and including SECRETUE/EU SECRET classification level by the by the Council of Ministers of the EU. NATO SECRET approval is in preparation. Together with Sectra’s other secure voice devices it forms the top end of an ecosystem of secure voice communication and text messaging of various security classifications.
