BlackBerry Limited (Nasdaq: BBRY) announced today 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.
BlackBerry Hub is your secure message center
BlackBerry recently launched a software licensing program that enables the BlackBerry Hub and other applications to be available on devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This means the BlackBerry Hub is now the SecuTABLET's centralized and secure messaging inbox, collecting all messages, such as emails, calendar entries and any application notifications in one organized location.
"With the SecuTABLET, for the first time, we are combining secure software and hardware from multiple manufacturers into a joint solution. Receiving approval from the BSI confirms our resolve to offer solutions that combine maximum security with ease of operation and that are always available on the very latest hardware," said Dr. Christoph Erdmann, Managing Director of Secusmart.
Samsung Knox separates personal and business data
Samsung has also made its Knox mobile security platform available on the SecuTABLET. Knox is able to reliably separate sensitive information from personal data, meaning that users can easily and securely switch between using their device for business and personal purposes.
"Our collaboration with BlackBerry's Secusmart is a testimony to our commitment to mobile security," emphasized Sascha Lekic, Director of B2B Sales, IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics GmbH. "Samsung Knox has allowed us to add an extra level of security to the use of Android on Samsung smartphones and to create a foundation on which to develop mobile security solutions. The SecuTABLET is an impressive example of this."
The BlackBerry SecuTABLET is globally available now. For more information, visit https://www.secusmart.com/en/for-companies/secutablet.
