Bittium announced Finnish forces order
The company will also deliver the Bittium Secure Suite back-end system classified for Confidential level, which will reinforce the information security of the Finnish military’s wireless communications.
Bittium Tough Mobile LTE smartphone and its back-end system have a hardened operating system, hardened user identification, and data transfer. The solution also includes Digia Salpa, a mobile communications encryption product that provides strong encryption of both calls and messages. The equipment is currently being tested by the National Cyber Security Centre Finland, for approval for the national classification level Confidential.
Bittium Tough Mobile can operate in two modes: public and confidential. This enables professional use with high-level information security and personal use, including social media applications, with the same device. The user can switch between the two different modes.
Jari Sankala, senior vice president of defense and security at Bittium, said: ‘Cooperation with the Finnish defence forces has significantly contributed to the development and testing of Bittium Tough Mobile’s information security features.
‘It is very important for us to be an active party in the implementation of Finland’s cyber strategy. In addition, the Finnish defence forces as our customer gives us a highly valued reference when marketing our systems internationally.’
