STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Swedish Tax Agency has chosen Cybercom (STO:CYBE) as its supplier of digital signature services. The agreement runs for two years, with an option for an additional two years. The value of the contract is estimated to be SEK 30 million for the first two years.
"Winning this security business is highly significant. It confirms our strong position in Connected Identity, a field with excellent growth potential. These federated and enabling security concepts create new opportunities for collaboration and Connectivity in the broadest sense within the community. The time has therefore passed when security solutions were an obstacle to the digital development of business activities," says Bo Strömqvist, Head of Sales at Cybercom Group.
The signature service works with both the current system for e-identification (BankID and Telia) and with the new "Federation services for Swedish e-identification", provided for the public sector by the E-identification Board and enabled by Cybercom.
"We are very proud of the confidence shown in us by the Tax Agency. This is a unique assignment in the industry, and demonstrates once again our leading expertise and delivery capabilities in the field of security and federation. We delivered the new Swedish public e-identification system to the E-identification Board last year. Together with the signature system for the Tax Agency, this gives us a fantastic opportunity to enable other public-sector organisations to gradually migrate their e-services into the new federation-based electronic identification system," says Björn Lindeberg, Business Manager at Cybercom.
Delivery will take place under the e-management support services framework agreement, and includes complete service delivery for digital signatures to which the Tax Agency will link all of its e-services for Swedish citizens. A very high level of security is required.
