Securing the mobile workplace—information security on mobile devices

Enhancing the mobility and flexibility of your organization without compromising the confidentiality of information is a challenge. A smartphone is a great working tool, but smartphones are also increasingly operating in an environment where the security of data is constantly being put to the test. Not only does the versatility of the device itself create a risk of exposure to threats such as malware and interception, but misconfiguration and other user mistakes can also have severe consequences, and information may end up in the wrong hands. Hacked devices can also lead to the disruption of services across an entire organization, resulting in substantial costs, both directly and indirectly.

With Sectra Tiger®/R, a hardened smartphone and tablet solution, you receive a secure mobile workplace—a platform that helps to meet the challenges associated with security and performance when it comes to mobile scenarios, secure and efficient communication with colleagues, and secure and simple access to organizational tools and data. Sectra Tiger/R is built in a cost-efficient way utilizing the latest standard mobile devices from Samsung, both phones and tablets, without the need for customization.

Sectra Tiger/R is designed to withstand hacking and interception attempts from the most resourceful parties in the world. Advanced phone integrity and encryption that ensures secure calls as well as the protection of stored information make it one of the most secure mobile systems currently available.

Security is a top priority for government organizations when choosing mobile technology. Leveraging our enterprise grade security, we’ve collaborated with Sectra to create a unique and highly customized platform that manages and protects the most sensitive and confidential information.

Carry your intranet securely in your pocket

Sectra Tiger/R allows you to securely access sensitive information from your organization’s network. E-mail, calendars and other internal applications important to the organization can easily be added to a protected workspace that is securely and robustly connected to your organization’s intranet—effectively turning your standard smartphone or tablet into an efficient and secure working tool. Sectra’s VPN optimized for mobile use coupled with Samsung’s data separation and encryption framework on the device secures your business against information leaks and protects your organizational services from being disrupted by hackers.

Mobility starts with efficient data transfer

The Sectra Mobile VPN features important capabilities specifically relevant in mobile scenarios. These include being roaming persistent and an option to use always-on functionality while still having a very low impact on battery life.

It also supports real-time sensitive applications, allowing both video calls and screen sharing applications to work without impacting performance or user experience. Furthermore, the Sectra Mobile VPN supports running multiple VPN tunnels on the same device. In such scenarios, every VPN enables a secure link for a specific application or group of applications.

Secure availability, efficient and simple

Sectra Tiger/R provides full flexibility for the user organization to adapt its policies for using the devices in order to strike the right security balance. The user is supported by automated device integrity that requires no user input or actions, with policies and whitelisting enforced to eliminate the risk of mistakes.

The solution is based on components that are reviewed and approved for implementation at the RESTRICTED security level for both the EU and NATO and is delivered with continuous support and security updates from Sectra, which has more than 40 years of experience in the field of cybersecurity.

Device integrity for peace of mind

Advanced device integrity and encryption that ensures secure calls as well as the protection of stored information make Sectra Tiger/R one of the most secure mobile systems available today. All of this while still building on standard off-the-shelf mobile devices, providing a cost-effective and long-term solution. As such, it also provides the ability to leverage the very latest in mobile device developments without sacrificing security.

The enhanced platform security is the result of a strategic partnership between Sectra and Samsung. This means that Sectra Tiger/R can be installed out-of-the-box on the latest Samsung smartphone or tablet models, without the need for device adaptation. By virtue of its thorough design and availability for review by national security agencies, the Android Samsung Knox platform is ideal for an approved-level secure smartphone solution. Utilizing a Sectra secure smart card, which holds an encryption processor and keys, the Sectra solution provides an independent source of device integrity superior to the standalone smartphone platform.
