Federal Police relies on SINA Workstation for mobile and decentralised workstations

Since 2002, the Federal Police have been implementing highly secure networking of their locations with SINA L3 boxes (highly secure VPN gateways).

The positive experience has encouraged the customer to also implement other challenges - such as the secure connection of mobile and decentralised workstations - with SINA: The introduction of the SINA Workstation S into the IT network of the Federal Police initially began in 2011 with a pilot project, which after successful completion served as the basis for the installation of the overall solution in regular operation. Since then, the Federal Police has expanded the number of clients several times: while the original focus was on securely connecting employees on foreign assignments and in decentralised work situations, the SINA Workstation is now also increasingly being used to implement specialised police applications in mobile use, such as procedures for identity verification and identification. With the SINA Workstation S, the employees of the Federal Police have a secure, modern and mobile workplace. They can work in parallel in several separate guest systems with different security levels and thus have access to VS-level information and documents while on the move, while at the same time being able to use the Internet. This makes the work of the Federal Police more effective - and also more efficient, as mobile and decentralised processes are accelerated by the expanded possibilities.

More than 1,500 SINA Workstations
are in operation with the Federal Police, with an upward trend.

To reduce the effort involved in each expansion, the Federal Police now use a central SINA Installserver, which allows a rapid roll-out of SINA workstations in large quantities. Further product additions such as the migration from the SINA Installserver to the Remote Admin Server are being considered. This would allow the SINA workstations to be conveniently maintained and administered remotely. In addition, the Federal Police is continuously testing the use of other new SINA technologies.
