Taking its unbreachable security solutions to tablet devices, Blackberry in partnership with IBM, today announced SecuTABLET, a highly-secured tablet solution, built over Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The tablet has been developed by Blackberry subsidiary SecuSMART.
The newly developed secured tablet solution is a continuation of Blackberry’s efforts to carve out and maintain a niche secure-devices market for itself, after it failed to gain any decent traction after multiple smartphone launches. SecuTABLET was announced at tech fair CeBIT 2015 in Germany.
Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, CEO of SecuSMART, said in a prepared statement,
Security is ingrained in every part of BlackBerry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions
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 device is currently undergoing security clearance tests by the German Federal Office for Information Security, so as to procure the required secured rating. Upon granting of the certificate, SecuTABLET would become world’s only tablet to possess encryption and security tech, currently matchable only to its smaller smartphone siblings manufactured by Blackberry.
The new tablet is being built for the German Government as of now, and Blackberry has not announced any immediate plans regarding the tablet’s availability for foreign Governments.
