Spain's national communication and information security agency, the Centro Criptológico Nacional (CCN), has approved Tutus' smartphone Färist Mobile for protecting information at the RESTRICTED security level.

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 a large number of innovative security features, enabling 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 and evaluated and approved solutions.

The Färist Mobile is the first open and transparent smartphone based on Android that has been approved for use at the RESTRICTED level.

"After conducting an extensive evaluation, CCN has decided to approve the Färist Mobile for the protection of national information on the RESTRICTED security level. The secure smartphone is now in the further process of being approved for the protection of NATO RESTRICTED information. Our plans include also its approval by the EU, after completion of the second-party evaluation process," says CCN Assistant Deputy Director, Luis Jiménez.
