Netherlands MOD signs framework agreement with Sectra
The Ministry of Defense of the Netherlands has signed a new three-year framework agreement with Sectra. The agreement pertains to delivery of Tiger products that are used to protect voice and data communications from eavesdropping.
The Ministry of Defense of the Netherlands has previously had a framework agreement with Sectra for supply of Tiger XS. This framework agreement has now been renewed for a duration of three years. Service and support are also included in the agreement. The users of the products are such branches of the defense forces as the Royal Netherlands Navy, the Royal Netherlands Army and the Royal Netherlands Air Force, as well as the central defense command.
"The Netherlands' Ministry of Defense maintains a high level of security and a long planning horizon, which offers benefits in terms of security and cost," says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra Communications.
Sectra's Tiger products for secure telephony are used by decision-makers, officials and military personnel in 17 European countries. During the autumn, Tiger XS was named by the European Council as the product that must be used for secure telephony within the European Union.
In the Netherlands, Tiger XS is used by all ministries and the defense forces. Telephone calls between ministers, undersecretaries and officials are thereby protected from information leaks. In addition, all ministries protect their fax communication between departments using Tiger XS.
