Atea and AppGate delivers new secure mobile “field” solution to Swedish Police

Following rigourous testing over the past year, AppGate’s solution has been chosen to ensure police officers on the beat can securely access essential information held on the central network at police head quarters via their mobile phones. AppGate’s technology will now make it possible for the Police force to change how they work to be more productive and efficient.

Stockholm 17 June 2009 - It has been a tough knot for the Police to solve, how to make confidential information available for officers working on the street while ensuring the information remains secured. Previously, officers had to return to the station each time they needed to retrieve information, despite the fact that it would be more effective and efficient if they were able to access it while at the scene of the crime.

A key requirement has been to find a solution that uses the highest possible level of security while at the same time providing the best possible availability, and the new solution from AppGate achieves that making it possible to retrieve highly classified information over a mobile phone. The solution will be available to police all over Sweden and 10 000 police officers will use the system at first with the possibility to scale it up to incorporate more users later.

The AppGate system makes it possible to integrate all types of access: Mobile, PC/Mac, PDA, in one single solution without having to accept reduced security or functionality. The users will get exactly the access they need when they need it – no more and no less. One set of users might be restricted to downloading e-mail and synchronising their calendars on their mobile phones, while others who are running the required AV software on their mobile devices might have access to SAP and the CRM system as well.

As always AppGate security servers build on existing proven functionality such as:

Application Layer Firewall

Mobile & Fixed VPN

Granular & Role based Access

End-point Security Control
