New BlackBerry Tablet Places The Focus On SecurityThe SecuTABLET is BlackBerry‘s tablet offering, and with this tablet, the focus is on security.

The result of a collaboration between Secusmart, a BlackBerry subsidiary, and Samsung, the tablet is a reworked Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5.

Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, CEO of Secusmart GmbH, said in a press release “Security is ingrained in every part of BlackBerry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions…National and international government customers have entrusted their voice and data communications with the Secusmart Security Card for years. This same technology is what secures the new SecuTABLET. Working alongside IBM and Samsung, we have added the last link in the chain of the Federal Security Network. Subject to certification of the SecuTABLET, German government agencies will have a new way to access BlackBerry’s most secure and complete communications network in the world.”

“The SecuTABLET closes a supply gap and opens up for government and administrations an opportunity to derive greater benefit from digitization and the mobile Internet, with system integration as a fundamental success factor,” said Stefan Hefter, Senior Management Consultant with IBM. “We have contributed our longstanding expertise as a system integrator for mobile solutions. The technology used to make mobile apps secure by means of so-called wrapping has already proven its worth in the United States.”
