BlackBerry and Samsung have created a ‘spy-proof’ tablet for the German government


Last updated: September 3rd, 2016 at 07:49 UTC+02:00

BlackBerry – a company that touts its exceptional mobile security credentials – announced at IFA 2016 that it has teamed up with Samsung on a “spy-proof” tablet for the German government. The tablet may look like any other Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 but it features a special security card as well as tough encryption and certification software developed by BlackBerry’s Secusmart to secure data that’s stored on the SecuTABLET and transferred from it. The SecuTABLET has been approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) at the “classified – for official use only” (VS-NfD) security level.

The Secusmart Security securely encrypts transfer of mobile data as well as all information on the tablet. It also features government-grade MAM technology which works in conjunction with Samsung’s Knox security suite so that users can access both business and personal apps on the same device while still meeting the strict security requirements of the agencies of the German government.

“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,” said Sascha Lekic, Director of B2B Sales, IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics.

Unfortunately, this highly secure iteration of the Galaxy Tab S2 is not and will not be sold to the general public.
