Secure mobile working: BWI procures SINA Workstations S for the German Federal Armed Forces

[Essen, Germany, 20 July 2020] BWI GmbH has commissioned secunet to supply more than 6,000 SINA Workstations S. The crypto clients are intended as a remote access service for the German Federal Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) and enable mobile, flexible working without compromising security. With this major order, BWI is continuing its successful cooperation with secunet: The company has already equipped workstations of the German Federal Ministry of Defence (BMVg) with SINA Workstations S and provided the Bundeswehr with SINA solutions for various operational purposes and security requirements. The currently ordered devices have already been handed over to BWI on schedule.

The SINA Workstation S is a crypto client for stationary and mobile use that has been approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for processing classified information with the classification level VS-NUR FÜR DEN DIENSTGEBRAUCH (VS-NfD). Approvals also exist for similar international classification levels. The SINA Workstation S allows several guest systems of different security classifications to be operated in parallel, isolated from each other. This allows users to work simultaneously in networks with classified information and the Internet, for example. Users always work in their familiar environment – online and offline. Thanks to several interlocking security components, the classified data remain secure at all times. The SINA Workstation S can be configured automatically and managed remotely. It has already proved to be successful in numerous mass rollouts with several thousand devices.

In other product variants, the SINA Workstation is approved up to and including GEHEIM, NATO SECRET and SECRET UE/EU SECRET.

SINA (Secure Inter-Network Architecture) is a high-security solution that secunet has developed on behalf of the BSI. SINA has already been successfully used for many years by public authorities and the armed forces, both in Germany and abroad.
