Sectra introduces Android security solutions
Sectra has announced the introduction of secure communications solutions for smartphone and tablet models for defence users. According to a company statement issued 10 November 2011, Sectra will implement the Sectra Panthon security solution for mobile IP telephony on the Android technology platform, which will be ready for delivery in early 2012.
According to the company, Sectra Panthon is a security solution for mobile IP telephony that functions equally well with 2G and 3G networks and can enable secure communication essentially everywhere. The security solution is hardware based in the form of a smart card that is installed in the telephone. During the year, it has received security approvals from the Dutch National Agency for Communication Security, the EU and NATO.
Sectra’s close cooperation with customers and national security agencies in many countries has resulted in the company’s solutions for secure communications now being deployed in 17 European countries, in the EU and NATO. Users are decision-makers and officials in governments, defence authorities and functions critical to society, such as municipalities, county councils, police, customs, rescue services and the coast guard. A shared demand from all of these is the ability to use security-approved products and to communicate securely, while placing stringent demands on flexibility and mobility.
