Security solution from Sectra approved by NATO

15th September 2011 - 08:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Officials who handle sensitive NATO information can now use Sectra's voice crypto, Sectra Panthon, to protect their telephone calls from eavesdropping, following NATO's approval of the voice crypto for communication at the security level Restricted[1]. Earlier this year, Sectra Panthon was approved by the Dutch National Agency for Communication Security at the same level.

"Approval from NATO is an additional stamp of quality for Sectra Panthon. The Sectra Panthon voice crypto is being welcomed by officials who require security-approved products but who also want the advantages of a modern mobile telephone," says Michael Bertilsson, President of Sectra Communications.

With Sectra Panthon, making an encrypted telephone call is as easy as making a regular telephone call. The hardware-based security solution comes in the form of a smartcard that is installed in the mobile phone. Sectra Panthon's unique solution for mobile IP telephony functions equally well in 2G, 2.5G and 3G networks. This future-proof solution enables secure voice communications essentially everywhere.

Sectra's close collaboration with customers and national security authorities has led to the company's products for secure telephony currently being utilized by government authorities and defense customers in 17 European countries, within the EU and NATO.
