BlackBerry & Samsung teams up to create a Secure Tablet for the German Government

by Karthik Iyer 2

BlackBerry Ltd has reported that the company’s Encryption technology is being used to develop a highly secure tablet. This technology will be used in a tablet manufactured by Samsung to make it spy-proof as it is being used by Government officials in Germany to handle highly classified information. Well, we bet it should be highly classified info since they are further securing a tablet which already comes with Samsung’s Knox security.

This Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will include a security card and encryption and certification software developed by BlackBerry’s Secusmart. This will essentially lock down all the data that is stored on or transferred from this SecuTablet. This is a good move by both the companies to join forces and work on something that will ensure a secure environment. It is necessary that the everyday piece of technology that you use, should be secure so that your data remains intact at any given point.

BlackBerry is well-known for its focus on security and productivity software. Well, they don’t seem to be doing quite good with their smartphones in the market anyway. The company previously launched the DTek 50. Dtek 50 is the second Android smartphone from the company after the Priv and this one skips the physical keyboard as well. But hey, this is device is not known for its looks and aesthetics. It comes as the company’s commitment to securing Android. The company claims that it is most secure android smartphone available in the market that anyone can purchase.

So now coming back to this secure tablet, we don’t have any info about the value of the deal or any such info. It is also not known as to how much this will cost. Also, this is not the first time that these two manufacturers are working together. It is reported that the duo already worked on some similar project with Galaxy Tab S 10.5. So let’s wait and see what we get here.

    This reminds me of one good line “if you want to secure your computer never switch it on”. Nothing can be 100% secure but this is good move, Hope we can see similar things with all devices.
