SINA Workstation S – 100,000 Secure Workplaces for Public Administration

SINA has developed into Europe’s most successful cryptology solution over recent years[Essen/Nuremberg, 10 October 2019] The world’s largest IT security trade fair, the it-sa 2019 in Nuremberg, provided the perfect setting for a milestone in the history of secunet: 100,000 SINA Workstations S had been supplied. At the event, Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet, awarded a certificate to Arne Schönbohm, President of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and Dr. Günther Welsch, Head of Department of Crypto-technology and IT Management at BSI.

Authorities, enterprises and the armed forces have been deploying the SINA Workstation for years for the purpose of processing sensitive or classified data. The solution combines security and user friendliness. Users operate within their trusted work environment at any time (e.g. MS Windows). The SINA Workstation is available in a variety of product versions to meet different security requirements – up to GEHEIM/SECRET level – as well as in various standard form factors such as in a desktop or laptop.

“The Secure Inter-Network Architecture - alias SINA - is a prime example of a successful public private partnership”, said Arne Schönbohm. “The crypto solution, which secunet developed on behalf of BSI, is today a well-established component in authorities both in Germany and around the world and is an enabler of digitisation in public administration.“

“With 100,000 SINA Workstations, we have reached a milestone in our company’s history but work still continues relentlessly”, said Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet Security Networks AG. “Digital administration is only possible with high IT security standards. We will continue to adapt SINA to new customer demands and use case scenarios”.

The meeting took place at the it-sa IT security trade fair in Nuremberg. secunet is present at Stand 10.0-210 in Hall 10.0.
