The Dutch Ministry of Defense has signed an order with IT and secure communications company Sectra (STO:SECT B) for the encrypted mobile phone Sectra Tiger 7401. The device is used to protect voice and data communication from eavesdropping, also by other countries’ Security Agencies. The Ministry and Sectra have also extended their existing framework agreement for secure communication solutions for another two years. The order value is estimated to EUR 580,000.
The extended framework agreement with Sectra encompasses service and maintenance for the secure communication systems already in use at the Ministry. It also includes an option for Sectra Panthon, which is a smartphone app for secure voice and data communication and text messaging. Since Sectra Panthon and Sectra Tiger 7401 have been approved for different security classification levels, the individual security needs of the Ministry’s users will be easier to match.
