The President of the Portuguese National Security Authority (Gabinete Nacional de Segurança) has approved Tutus' smartphone Färist Mobile and Färist VPN for the protection of information at the National RESTRICTED, NATO RESTRICTED and UE RESTRICTED security levels for the protection of classified information in Portugal.
The Färist Mobile is a secure smartphone based on the Android operating system, with integrated strong encryption to protect against tapping and intrusion. This phone has various innovative security features designed to enable organisations and companies to use all of the possibilities and functions of a smartphone, with high security and without the risk of information leakage.
The approval of the Färist Mobile creates new business opportunities for Tutus, both nationally and internationally. The product is ideal for organizations and companies that require a high level of secure communication with officially evaluated and approved solutions.
The Färist Mobile is the first open and transparent smartphone based on Android approved for use at the National, NATO and UE RESTRICTED levels in Portugal.
Following an extensive evaluation with the support of the University of Oporto, Computer Science Department, GNS decided to approve both the Färist Mobile and the Färist VPN for the protection of national information at the RESTRICTED security level.
Tommy Hallberg, VP Sales and Marketing at Tutus Data, adds: "We are extremely proud that the Färist Mobile has been approved to handle classified information, enabling us to reinforce our existing range of evaluated and approved network security solutions. The approval represents an important confirmation for us and our customers that the Färist Mobile satisfies the stringent security requirements applicable at this level. The Färist Mobile is unique in that it offers all the advantages of a smartphone - in a secure form."
Joao Maia, GNS Information Assurance Chief: The Tutus mobile system is a secure mobile phone that works inside a VPN with strong end-to-end-encryption and a secure operating system. It can be used as a normal mobile phone or in a secure mode where the users need only be connected to the Internet using WiFi or their mobile data.
Currently, this is the only mobile phone in the world protected against GSM attack. All other models appear to be vulnerable to eavesdropping.
