“The need for secure and robust communication systems with high availability is greater than ever before.

Quantum computers will have the capability to perform certain types of calculations much more efficiently than today’s computers. Such computers could thus pose a threat to current encryption methods, and quantum-resilient solutions are therefore perceived to be one of the key traits of future-proof confidentiality. The latest version of Sectra Tiger/S is also approved by the Dutch security authority and the EU for use up to and including the classification level SECRET.
