Secure app wrapping technology provided by IBM “assists in implementing the high-security solutions by Secusmart within the infrastructures of the various clients inside the governmental sector”.
“National and international government customers have entrusted their voice and data communications with the Secusmart Security Card for years,” commented Dr Hans-Christoph Quelle, Secusmart CEO. “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 tablet comes on the back of an active recent period for BlackBerry, which revealed its all-touch Leap smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, unveiling plans to release four new devices this year.
The Wall Street Journal has reported the SecuTABLET will be available as early as around the US summer, mid-year, and will sell for about US$2,380.
