BlackBerry subsidiary Secusmart presented with IBM at CeBIT 2015 the SecuTABLET, a poorly named, highly secure device.
The tablet, a modified Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, is targeted at national and international public sector markets and enterprises.
“Security is ingrained in every part of BlackBerry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions,” said Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, CEO of Secusmart GmbH, a BlackBerry company. “National and international government customers have entrusted their voice and data communications with the Secusmart Security Card for years. This same technology is what secures the new SecuTABLET.”
Working alongside IBM and Samsung, BlackBerry has “added the last link in the chain of the Federal Security Network.
The IBM Institute for Business Value study on mobility impact shows that 63 percent of public sector respondents would appreciate mobile access to specialized applications like budget and controlling.
“The SecuTABLET closes a supply gap and opens up for government and administrations an opportunity to derive greater benefit from digitization and the mobile Internet, with system integration as a fundamental success factor,” said Stefan Hefter, Senior Management Consultant with IBM. “We have contributed our longstanding expertise as a system integrator for mobile solutions.”
