Blackberry-owned company Secusmart has unveiled a new tablet in collaboration with Samsung and IBM.

The Secutablet is “based on” the Samsung Galaxy 10.5 and runs on Samsung hardware, the firm said.

The additional security it offers is aimed at businesses and governments, but less vigorously protected social media and video platforms can also be used on the device, Secusmart added.

The tablet is likely to be priced at $2,380 (£1,609), according to reports.

The Secutablet is compatible with Blackberry 10 and is currently undergoing security certification at the German Federal Office for Information Security.

It incorporates IBM’s “app wrapping” technology which adds extra layers of security to sensitive data.

“Security is ingrained in every part of Blackberry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions,” said Dr Hans-Christoph Quelle, CEO of Secusmart GmbH, a Blackberry company.
