Düsseldorf/Hannover –  Secusmart GmbH today announces that the SecuSUITE for BlackBerry® 10 solution has been selected by the German Procurement Office and Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for classified communications for the German government.

Secusmart’s SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 solution is built on the best in class security provided by the BlackBerry® 10 platform, Secunet and Sirrix.

Leveraging the  unique capabilities of Secusmart Security Card and the BlackBerry® Balance™ technology in BlackBerry 10, this is the first ever solution that meets the extremely high security requirements of the German federal authorities for secure data and secure voice communications while allowing uncompromised user experience.

The Secusmart Security Card meets the requirements of the German government for reliable encryption of the data at rest, secure voice, secure VPN, text messages and browsing, as well as secure access to the Internet. BlackBerry Balance has the ability to keep sensitive information separated and secure from personal content, allowing customers to effortlessly and securely switch between their professional and personal life.

“The combined solution will for the first time ever bring a brilliant smartphone user experience to a government user without compromising sensitive state information. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is based on the secure voice product that has already been approved by German BSI, Dutch NBV, EU Information Assurance Council and NATO for RESTRICTED communications. Combined with BlackBerry10, we are glad to be able to meet the extremely high security requirements of the federal authorities in Germany,” said Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, Managing Director of Secusmart.

“Security has always been built into the heart of the BlackBerry solution. Nothing is more secure than a BlackBerry smartphone connected to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10,” said Scott Totzke, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Security Group. “With BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Balance, we are delivering the breakthrough platform that combines state-of-the-art security with a powerful new mobile computing experience. The SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 solution brings together an unprecedented combination of voice and data security, usability and cost effectiveness for government organisations that work with highly sensitive information.”

Secusmart will be presenting the SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 solution  at CeBIT 2013 on booth B66 in hall 12 from march 5th to 9th.
