German government gives BlackBerry Z10 lots of love, security wins the day

There are still staffers that will continue to use Samsung Android devices, but word has it that 5,000 Z10s have made, or will be making their way into the hands of other government employees. That will mean that about half of the government issued devices will be BlackBerry handsets. The other half being the aforementioned Samsung devices (Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III). The deal was struck by the Procurement Office of the Ministry of the Interior and the Federal office for Information Security (BSI) with Düsseldorf Secusmart and T-Systems, who provide IT security applications to the government.
Thanks to BlackBerry Balance, users will be able to have some personalization while the IT folks will still be able to maintain control and implement policies to protect sensitive materials and communications. Secusmart installs a security solution which assists with that endeavor. Everything, from phone calls to emails, internet or VPN access and PIM data is encrypted.
This is a bulls-eye for BlackBerry, and a much needed one as the manufacturer has maintained its focus on enterprise and government clients throughout the development of BlackBerry 10.

apple iOS and Google Android security LEVEL is already on par with BB. BB is hyping their security is better, but the truth is not better than competitor.... and the worst... BB server stability is very bad. The push email & BBM do run trouble every now and then... and with BB gonna bankrupt this year, investing in BB10 is the worst decision german govt ever had.

They paid a lot of money for a technology that is on the market for 8 years, and does not costs thousands of euros... Actually Secfone (check their UK website) was the very first company that used TPM technology for mobile communication encryption. The debut of the technology was at CeBit 2006 in Hannover. Their cryptocard can be used with almost any smartphone that runs Android. And the Secfone cryptocard costs only 300 EUR (and you have to pay 55 EUR/month for the service, if you use Secfone's servers).

Shut the f**k up!!! I'm from Denmark, and if some stupid pig... like you... don't know where that is, we are Germanys neighbors. I know a lot of German people, and believe me, they aren't proud of what Hitler did to that country, in fact that is a very embarrassing subject for them. So don't... just don't...
