Finnish firm Bittium will launch a new Confidential classification level version of the Bittium Tough Mobile smartphone with its back-end system. The device features Bittium’s dual-boot functionality for the Confidential classification level, which 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, for example, 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 is also exhibiting its 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 also has a speaker slot and will take part in a panel discussion in the main agenda session entitled: "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," Markku Korkiakoski, Director, Cyber Security and Technology Development, 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?

The company argues that its Tough Mobile smartphone and Secure Suite form a ‘unique, complete, reliable system for processing and transferring sensitive and classified material and securing critical communication’.

Bittium’s products and solutions are exhibited at stand A9a.
