The Canadian based wireless equipment company Blackberry introduced its Secutablet “Spy proof device”. This high tech device has been pioneered with the help of Samsung and IBM. The Canadian phone manufacturer has been observed by many as one with falling popularity, but the phone manufacturer has taken the decision to make its presence felt in the telecommunication market.
According to latest Blackberry news, the Secutablet is the combination of software and hardware of three companies. In order to protect applications containing confidential information the device employs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.5 with Secusmart micro SD card and IBM softwares. These softwares play their role in making sure that the sensitive information is shielded from malicious attacks.
According to BlackBerry news, this shield permits the equipment to operate personal applications such without the threat from malicious attacks. The Canadian phone maker predicts to sell approximately 10,000 units yearly at a price of $2,360 a piece. The secure tablet is being supplied to businesses and governments.
The senior management consultant of IBM Stefan Hefter says that the newly launched product would be able to satisfy those who require bigger screens without violations of security. The Chief Executive Officer of Secusmart Hans-Christoph Quelle says that the security system is installed in each and every part of this high tech invention, which encompasses data encryption and voice solutions.
Government customers have relied on Secusmart security cards for years, and these same security cards would be employed to protect this newly launched product of Blackberry. The German company Secusmart has been providing BlackBerry designed smart phones with this security software since 2013 but this will be the first time that this security software would be utilized for tablets.
This high tech invention is still waiting for the approval of the German Federal office for Information security, but it is forecasted that the product would be introduced in the market by next year. This is not the first tablet manufactured by the Canadian based phone maker. In 2011, the manufacturer introduced the Blackberry Playbook. The production of that tablet was later stopped due to falling sales. The company may launch PlayBook 2 for ordinary consumers, according to the news.
One of the most interesting aspects of this newly pioneered secure device is that three different telecommunications companies Blackberry, Samsung and IBM have employed various resources to make sure that the information of their customers gets shielded in the best possible manner. It is expected that the Secutablet would play an important role in making sure that the lives of its users become much easier.
