Swedish authorities improve ability to communicate securely—expand their partnership with Sectra
Linköping, Sweden – February 6, 2024 – Swedish authorities are expanding their partnership with international cybersecurity and medical imaging IT company Sectra (STO: SECT B) through new orders of systems and solutions for secure communication that will improve the ability of Swedish civil and military defense to communicate securely and efficiently, regardless of location and time.
The orders pertain to the final development and delivery of a desktop phone with conference call functionality and to the delivery of units for Sectra’s system for secure communication. The ordered solutions are part of the Tiger/S product family and have been developed for the communication of classified information concerning national security, up to the classification level SECRET. The Tiger/S system is also approved for handling information up to the classification level EU SECRET and NATO SECRET.
“Being able to communicate securely, regardless of the prevailing circumstances, is crucial for maintaining a secure society. These new orders confirm that Sectra plays an important role in the Swedish civil and military defense’s ability to share classified information. I’m proud that we—together with Swedish authorities—are developing a new communication solution in the form of a desktop phone with a very high security level. The solution will make it possible for multiple people to participate in a secure call, thereby further contributing to efficient collaboration within and between Swedish authorities,” says Magnus Skogberg, President of Sectra Communications.
The total order value amounts to approximately SEK 90 million, and the contracts were signed in the third quarter of Sectra’s 2023/2024 fiscal year. The continued collaboration with Swedish authorities will strengthen the communications protection capacity of the Swedish civil and military defense, today and in the future.
