All Dutch ministries have used Sectra’s secure communications service since 2007. It is the Ministry of the Interior that coordinates the allotment and use.
The service comprises the full Sectra Tiger Ecosystem of secure communications solutions. With Sectra’s solutions, Dutch ministries and government officials can communicate classified information relating to national security without the risk of eavesdropping.
The Dutch ministries have shown high security awareness for many years. We are proud to be able to contribute to securing national secrets in the best possible manner.
Delivered as a service
The Dutch ministries purchases secure communication as a service known in the Netherlands as VECOM, which is used for both national and international communication. This entails that Sectra delivers a total solution featuring Sectra Tiger products for secure mobile and fixed voice communication along with fax and data transmission, and the operation and secure administration of these services, as well as support and customized training for end-users.
Security, usability and flexibility
The Sectra Tiger Ecosystem comprises fully interoperable solutions on SECRET, RESTRICTED and sensitive security levels. The Dutch ministries can thus adapt allocation according to an individual’s communication and security requirements, while still ensuring that everyone can communicate with everyone.
Sectra’s solutions for secure communications are used by decision-makers and officials in governments, defense 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.
