Nothing Protects State Secrets Better
Eavesdropping on classified communications is a serious threat to national security. The risk of cyber-attacks by both foreign and domestic hackers is critical and ever-present. Far from being limited to intelligence databases, mobile and voice communications are now prime targets as well.
SecuSUITE® for Government is a multi-platform solution for end-to-end encryption of voice calls and text messages. Available on iOS, Android™, and BlackBerry®, it connects calls quickly, keeps them secure, and ensures excellent voice quality. It works globally, across network barriers, and across all carriers.
With the technical and financial barriers to electronic eavesdropping at an all-time low, call tapping is happening at an alarming rate. Government organizations have come to realize that their employees aren’t always at their desks when they need to exchange classified or private information. If you share confidential information using your smartphone or over conference calls, you need to be sure that your communications aren’t being tapped.
Technology That Meets Your Highest Standards
With SecuSUITE for Government, employees can be truly mobile and exchange secret and secure phone calls from their smartphones. Whether it’s economic prosperity, political stability or national security at stake, it’s a capability that can make all the difference.
Truly Mobile Security for Phone Calls and Text Messages
In the past, to make encrypted calls, government employees would have to be sitting at their desks using a secure landline. In a mobile world where everything is time-sensitive, that’s just not viable anymore. With SecuSUITE for Government, employees can be truly mobile and make confidential and secure phone calls from their smartphones, whether it’s iOS, Android or BlackBerry, and even if they own the device (BYOD).
Intuitive User Interface Without a Steep Learning Curve
If secure communication technology is cumbersome or hard to use, employees may revert to making calls on unsecured lines, or give up the ability to make secure calls while out of the office. SecuSUITE for Government is intuitive and similar to the native dialer that employees use every day on their smartphones. This means users can focus on communicating instead of on learning a new way to make calls or send text messages.
No Need to Sacrifice Call Quality, Performance or Usability
SecuSUITE for Government is designed with efficiency in mind. All its encryption and authentication processes run seamlessly and securely in the background, without impacting on battery life, performance or usability. Making an encrypted mobile phone call is as painless as making a regular call, and has the crystal-clear voice quality you need and expect. Users are already authenticated, the certificate exchange takes place during call setup and the client is optimized to maintain its SIP connection, meaning users are always reachable.
Technology That’s Backed by Certifications
When the security stakes are high, you need assurance that the communication technology you’re using meets your standards – and those that may be stipulated by regulators. While many of our competitors claim to be certified for a range of uses, BlackBerry has the longest history of gaining security certifications and national approval in the field.
To protect against evolving sophisticated cyber threats, SecuSUITE for Government is secured with strong data-in-transit (DIT) and data-at-rest (DAR) encryption. It can support dual layers of encryption across all data channels, complies with SUITE B cryptography requirements, supports FIPS 140-2 validated keystores and has obtained the following Common Criteria certifications based on NIAP Protection Profiles:
- Protection Profile for VoIP Applications v.1.3 (VoIP PP)
- Collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices v.1.0 (ND cPP)
This makes SecuSUITE for Government the only NIAP-certified voice solution supporting iOS, Android, and BlackBerry 10 devices. It’s BlackBerry’s first secure mobile voice product listed on both the NIAP Product Compliant List (PCL) and the NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Components List.
Protecting People and Agencies
Secure communications are essential for national security. From senior military advisors deployed to foreign war zones to diplomats attending economic summits abroad, government workers need to be able to make secure ‘breakout’ calls from their mobile device to any landline back home.
Part of BlackBerry® Secure, a comprehensive endpoint-to-endpoint approach to security, SecuSUITE For Government protects against threats to local and national security by enabling classified mobile communications on conventional mobile devices.
Foreign Affairs: Protecting All Embassies and Official International Missions

National Security and Law Enforcement Agencies: Protecting Entire Nations
In an era where the threat of terrorism is an everyday reality, the people charged with protecting national security need to be able to communicate securely at a moment’s notice. SecuSUITE for Government allows government personnel to protect all official voice and data exchanges, securing inter- and intra-agency communications against cyber-attacks.
Military & Defense: Protecting the Men and Women Who Protect Us
Foreign cellular networks are prone to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks, and a remote attacker can compromise personal and national security. SecuSUITE for Government supports fully encrypted voice calls out of any foreign network back to the caller’s home network, allowing personnel to make secure ‘breakout’ calls to landlines.
Work on the Go – Securely With SecuTABLET
Organizations can now offer users the features they need to work securely on the go, with the convenience of an Android™ tablet. SecuTABLET is offered as a bundle that includes a Samsung Galaxy S2 Tab plus the Secusmart Security Card. The Secusmart Security Card is responsible for securely encrypting the transferred mobile data as well as all the information stored on the device.
Developed in collaboration with Samsung and built on Android, SecuTABLET enables users to simultaneously use both work and personal apps while meeting the most stringent security requirements. SecuTABLET has received the seal of approval from the German Federal Office for Information Security, having been authorized for use at the German VS-NfD (classified – for official use only) security level.
SecuTABLET boasts its own app store, known as the SecuSTORE, where you can find all the apps you need. IT administrators use the EASE MAM server to choose from millions of Android aps, and control which are available for download. IT policies can be defined for each app as appropriate.
With SecuTABLET, all communication between work apps and the enterprise network runs through a direct VPN connection. Mobile application management (MAM) to control and manage both work and personal apps is done via an EASE Server, which is installed on -premise.
SecuSUITE for Government licenses may be purchased directly from BlackBerry.
