LUND, Sweden, December 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Business Security, a leading European provider of secure IT communication systems based in Lund, Sweden, is delighted to announce that its innovative encryption system SecuriVPN Arana has been approved by EU. The system is developed in close collaboration with the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV). Business Security is one of only four companies across Europe to offer products for secure IP networks that are approved by EU for use on the highest information classification level, EU Secret.
Authorities and companies are attacked on a daily basis. Threats come from competitors or even foreign powers. It is difficult to prevent espionage when a large amount of information is exchanged between geographically separated sites, while ensuring high availability. According to EU regulations, secret EU information must be protected by products approved by the European Union.
The EU approval of SecuriVPN Arana ensures that the system is a legitimate choice when authorities in 27 countries purchase encryption equipment. SecuriVPN Arana is approved for use both within individual EU countries when classified EU information is managed and between EU countries to protect the exchange of information.
"The approval is very prestigious since very few companies have the knowledge to design network products that are secure enough to meet with EU requirements. This puts Sweden on the map as an encryption nation and demonstrates that we are a major player in IT security, and a desirable market opens for Business Security at the same time", says Andreas Linde, CEO of Business Security.
Authorities in two countries have to evaluate and approve products in order to gain approval for managing data at the highest information classification level in EU, called EU Secret. SecuriVPN Arana has been evaluated and approved by security authorities in both Sweden and Holland.
About SecuriVPN Arana
SecuriVPN Arana is tailored for authorities' specific needs. The solution provides the highest possible protection against interception of communications and is approved to handle classified information in Sweden and the EU. The system has a very high reliability and is cost-effective and safe to administer. Administrative personnel can manage the system without the possibility of retrieving secret user information.
Unreliable, yet cost-efficient, connections such as the Internet may be used in a secure way with SecuriVPN Arana. No matter what type of data is transported in the network, whether heavy file transfers, multi-media or video conferencing, the information is protected against unauthorised interception. Documented reliability guarantees continuity in organisations and the high level of security ensures that both existing and future threats are eliminated.
The solution is also available in a version for information that is not EU-rated, intended for private companies and government agencies.
