Swedish military and civil defense strengthens ability to communicate securely by expanding solution from Sectra


International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra received several orders from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) during the first quarter.

The orders cover the further development of existing systems and solutions for secure communication. The military and civil defense agencies are thus further strengthening their ability to communicate securely and efficiently.

“The security policy situation has worsened in recent years, and foreign powers are working actively on recording and collecting data concerning sensitive operations. Sweden’s capacity for secure communication is therefore of crucial importance, and this order confirms that we are playing an important role in its maintenance and further development,” says Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications.

Sectra has been working together with the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration since 1987, and during this partnership has developed and delivered products for secure communication. The continued collaboration will strengthen communications protection capacity of the Swedish military and civil defense agencies. The order value is approximately SEK 63 million.
