Bittium launches a new high-security level version of the Bittium Tough Mobile smartphone at Critical Communications Europe exhibition

Oulu, Finland, January 27, 2017 – Bittium exhibits its innovative mobile security products and solutions targeted for authorities at the Critical Communications Europe exhibition in Copenhagen, Denmark, February 8 - 9, 2017. At the event Bittium will launch a new Confidential classification level version of the Bittium Tough Mobile with its back-end system.

Bittium Tough Mobiles unique dual-boot functionality for the Confidential classification level makes it possible to operate the device with two completely separate operating systems: Public and Confidential. The operating system classified as Public is meant for personal communications with access to e.g. social media applications. The operating system classified as Confidential is completely isolated and hardened for secure authority and information security use. The entity enables the user to have only one device for calls and messaging for both personal and for demanding information security needs, thus eliminating the need to carry two separate devices.

Bittium also exhibits the Bittium Secure Suite device management and encryption software, as well as a wide variety of special accessories for Bittium Tough Mobile, which have been designed for demanding police and military use.

At the event Bittium will have a speaker slot and will take part in a panel discussion:

  • In the main agenda session: "Are industry players meeting the demands of the end user?" The panel will discuss: Who is responsible for driving innovation, and how much responsibility should end users take on the development of innovation? Bittium’s panelist is Jarno Majava, Director, Sales.
  • In the Modernising Critical Communications session: "Smartphone in multi-user environment." The presentation will discuss the following issues: one device – multiple users, re-defining the BYOD, and can I have just one device for work and personal use? Bittium’s speaker is Markku Korkiakoski, Director, Cyber Security and Technology Development.

Products presented at the event:

  • Bittium Tough Mobile is a secure and durable Android-based LTE smartphone combining the latest information security and commercial device technologies. Bittium Tough Mobile incorporates a hardware-based security platform, which enables strong device security as well as deep integration of both customers' own and third party software security solutions.
  • Bittium Secure Suite is a device management and encryption software product that complements the Bittium Tough Mobile smartphone with a scalable set of new software services for remote management, remote attestation and securing the network connections of the device. The Bittium Tough Mobile smartphone and Bittium Secure Suite form a unique, complete, reliable system for processing and transferring sensitive and classified material and securing critical communication.
