The EU has approved Tutus' VPN crypto, Färist Micro, for protecting EU classified information at the level EU RESTRICTED. The VPN crypto has been developed by Tutus in a joint project with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) and the Swedish Armed Forces.

Färist Micro is an ultraportable VPN crypto that provides secure communication, making it possible for employees on the move to communicate in a secure way over public IP networks. The Micro is compatible with all other products within the Tutus Färist suite of network security solutions.

"We are very pleased that Färist Micro has been approved by the EU. We see a growing interest for approved devices for secure communications, with an ever-growing demand for smaller and more mobile solutions. We now expect to be able to work wherever we are and still have access to the information we need. The Färist Micro plays an important role in this by offering an approved solution for secure communication over public networks," says Jens Bohlin, CEO at Tutus.

Per Holmer, CTO at Tutus adds: "Färist Micro is powered over a USB port, weighs in at only 150 grams and fits into the palm of a hand. This makes it a very flexible and mobile VPN crypto with a performance of 10 Mbit/s."

Within the Swedish Government and the EU administration the approved version of Färist Micro is known as the SIGRID MICRO and also PGAI 9421.
