The mobile OS solution for corporations and governments

The European alternative to dominating mobile operating systems

Sailfish OS is flexible, adaptable, and secure, ensuring that all data remains fully in your own control. Sailfish OS is managed and developed by European mobile company Jolla, which has a strong heritage in Nokia and MeeGo OS.

The only mobile operating system offering a regional licensing model

Sailfish OS offers governmental and corporate customers a comprehensive solution, which can be adapted to specific customer needs. It is the perfect solution for building mobile payments and banking, secure communications and corporate solutions, as well as citizen services.

Compatible with the Android ecosystem

Sailfish OS is compatible with the Android ecosystem in both application and hardware adaptation levels, i.e. Android apps can be used in Sailfish OS. However, it’s fully independent, and not a derivative or a fork of the Android codebase. Sailfish licensing customers choose if they wish to use, or not to use, the Android application compatibility part in the OS. 

Technologically versatile OS

Sailfish OS is compatible with many form factors: the same core OS works in big TV screens, tablets, smartphones, and watches. The Sailfish OS UX can be fully tailored to different customer needs. An example is the specific UX done for Russian Post.  

Developed by Jolla, its customers and the Sailfish community

Sailfish OS is a true Linux-based open operating system with an active open source contribution model, meaning that all customers and an active Sailfish developer community contribute to the development of the core software.

Sailfish OS has matured to Sailfish 3

Sailfish 3

Sailfish OS has matured to its third generation. Sailfish 3 offers a packetized solution for various corporate environments, and a smooth and secure mobile OS for consumers looking for an alternative.

Sailfish 3 is ready for corporates

Sailfish 3 is a secure and efficient, open source based mobile platform designed mainly for a multitude of corporate solutions. It has a deeper level of security including features, such as Mobile Device Management (MDM), fully integrated VPN solutions, enterprise WiFi, data encryption, and better and faster performance. With Sailfish 3, Jolla is also perfectly equipped to cater to all needs of different governmental and corporate clients.

Even smoother user experience


Sailfish 3 adds a host of new features and improvements to the user experience: the OS has a new fresh look, a new top menu, new keyboard gestures, new camera functions, data encryption improvements, and USB On-the-Go storage, just to name a few. The third generation also brings a clear improvement to the OS performance: the rewritten way to launch apps and load views, and the upcoming Qt upgrade improves the UI performance significantly.

customer cases

Sailfish OS is a versatile solution for different governmental and corporate use cases. It is also the only mobile operating system offering a comprehensive licensing model for its customers. Sailfish OS is being deployed in regional projects all around the world.


Russia trusts in Sailfish OS

Russia has had a long-term objective to create a more independent IT and mobile ecosystem for the country. A few years ago Russian Ministry of Communications, led by former Minister of Communications Nikolai Nikiforov, was searching for a platform to be utilized in building their own digital society and in setting up their own independent mobile ecosystem.

Jala Group wanted to change this and announced the beginning of a Sailfish OS based project in early 2017.
