EU orders Sectra Tiger solution for sharing classified information
Linköping, Sweden – February 9, 2021 – Several EU institutions have procured additional units of the Sectra Tiger mobile encryption system from international cybersecurity and medical imaging IT company Sectra (STO: SECT B). The Sectra Tiger system will ensure that users are able to securely and efficiently communicate classified information up to and including the EU SECRET security level, with full availability anywhere and at any time.
“We have used the Sectra Tiger system for several years and it meets our high demands for secure communications between Brussels and our EU Delegations around the world. As the pandemic highlighted the need for additional secure exchanges with other EU institutions, the existing Sectra system was naturally considered to cover these new requirements,” says a senior representative from the European External Action Service.
The European Union has worked together with Sectra since 2010. Through the procurement of additional units, the EU institutions are extending their use of the Sectra Tiger system, a secure communication solution that allows users to share classified information up to the SECRET security level. Unique features in the Sectra Tiger system allow users to communicate securely between different organizations and security levels, without risking the confidentiality of the information, while ensuring the integrity of each security domain.
The orders follow a framework agreement announced in August 2020 and amounts to approximately SEK 14.5 million.
