Listen, Do You Want to Know a Secret?

A major European provider of secure mobile systems, Sectra has been granted EU approval for the highest security level ever granted for a mobile device within the area.

The Sectra Tiger/S 7401 mobile phone for secure voice communication and text messaging has been assessed and approved for the level SECRET UE/EU SECRET. Sectra reports it is the only provider with mobile crypto devices approved at this level by the EU.

Using the Sectra Tiger/S 7401, authorities and officials in the EU and member states can ‘securely’ communicate classified information over ordinary mobile networks, in several security domains ‘without fear of interception’.

In one single device, the Sectra Tiger/S 7401 enables secure communication and transparent interoperability in and between different organisations e.g. EU, NATO and a member state.

The purpose of such multi-domain functionality is to provide flexibility in terms of communications while maintaining the integrity of the different domains. A Dutch user, for example, can make secure calls to colleagues within the Dutch ministries, EU and NATO, following the proper arrangements.

The first Sectra Tiger/S 7401 units are currently being placed in operation within EU institutions.
