BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) on Sep 2, 2016 announced at the IFA Berlin conference that its SecuTABLET is being used by government agencies in Germany to ensure its staff can work on the go without falling victim to espionage.
BlackBerry’s highly secure tablet, integrated with government-grade MAM technology, is based on the latest version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, and was approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) at the “classified – for official use only” (VS-NfD) security level. The SecuTABLET is the latest BlackBerry cross-platform solution that fulfills the strict security guidelines set by German government agencies. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 had also received approval and has long been used by the German government to secure its mobile voice and data communications.
The SecuTABLET uses the Secusmart Security card responsible for securely encrypting the transfer of mobile data as well as encrypting all the information stored on the device. Also integrated into the tablet is software that provides Certificate Management for managing all keys and certifications stored in the Secusmart Security Card and VPN for cryptographically secured data communication. Secusmart’s leading secure voice technology will be added later this year. In conjunction with Samsung’s Knox security platform and BlackBerry’s MAM platform, the SecuTABLET enables users to access both business apps for working securely on the go and personal apps, all the while meeting the strict security requirements of German government agencies.
