International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) has delivered its secure smartphone, Sectra Tiger/R, to two Swedish healthcare regions. Sectra’s solution will enable the regions to securely communicate sensitive or classified information within their organizations and with central government authorities. Sectra Tiger/R is an encryption solution for smartphones and tablets. Within the two regions, Sectra Tiger/R will be used by key individuals in the security organizations to communicate sensitive information, such as crisis preparedness, information security or incident response capability.

The solution will be delivered as a service, whereby the system’s infrastructure and administration will be managed by Sectra. The regions will thus gain a cost-efficient solution that can be swiftly and easily implemented in day-to-day operations while avoiding high investment thresholds.
