BlackBerry & Samsung create 'spy-proof' tablet for German government
James Bond enough for a Government agent's repertoire. Since most of Bond's gadgets are as fictitious as the man himself, your everyday purveyor of classified intelligence must instead rely on the same tech as the general populous. Fortunately for such entities, companies like BlackBerry and Samsung exist.The Galaxy Tab S2 is a great bit of kit, even if it doesn't seem quite
Both firms would have us think that their respective ecosystems are secure. Be that as it may, their collective doubling down on security as part of a deal with German governing agencies sounds a grand deal more robust. The modified version of the Tab S2 is complete with a security card, encryption and certification software infrastructure created by BlackBerry's Secusmart department, which it acquired back in 2014. Any data stored or transferred on the tablet is subsequently locked down.
This isn't the first time that these companies have teamed up to produce high security tablets, either. Last year the duo — along with IBM — introduced a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with a similar level of digital bulletproofing. That particular SecuTablet was said to be priced at around $2380, though there's no telling how much this newer tab — with apparently improved security features — costs.
