Working alongside with IBM and Samsung, Blackberry has closed the circle of the chain of the Federal Security Network, adding the last link to it.
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,” Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, chief executive officer of Secusmart GmbH, said.
The SecuTABLET, is based on Samsung's Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and being presented by BlackBerry unit Secusmart at tech fair CeBIT 2015 in Germany.
“Security is ingrained in every part of BlackBerry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions,” said Quelle.
The device was undergoing certification by the German Federal Office for Information Security for secure rating, the statement said, adding that the new tablet used the same security technology as the Secusmart Security Card.
The cost for this level of security is not cheap. While the consumer version of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is around $500, the SecuTABLET tablet will ring in around $2,500 CDN (US$2,380).
