Sectra’s mobile VPN at OSI layer 4 obtains clearance from the Dutch national security authority

Linköping, Sweden – September 7, 2020 – The Dutch national communication security authority, NLNCSA, has cleared international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra’s (https://sectra.com/) (STO: SECT B) mobile VPN for use up to and including the RESTRICTED security level. Sectra’s mobile VPN belongs to the fourth layer of the OSI model for computer communication. For example, the solution grants civil authorities, government officials and critical infrastructure operators remote access to internal networks without risking information leaks. The users can thus access the same information and applications as they would from their regular workplace, regardless of where they are working from. The solution is considered to be more secure than opening the entire network, which classic layer 3 VPNs do.
