    BlackBerry PlayBook Becomes First Tablet Certified for U.S. Government

    RIM announced today that it has received FIPS 140-2 certification for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, making the PlayBook the first tablet certified for deployment within U.S. federal government agencies. No other tablet on the market has gained FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is required under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA).

    “RIM is pleased to announce that the BlackBerry PlayBook is the first tablet approved under FIPS for use within the U.S. federal government,” said Scott Totzke, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Security at Research In Motion. “This certification demonstrates our continued commitment to meeting the needs of security-conscious organizations and enables the U.S. federal government to buy with confidence knowing that the PlayBook meets their computing policy requirements for protecting sensitive information.”
    While the PlayBook is the first certified tablet, government workers can still use other devices. Will this sway Government workers to set aside their iPads for a more secure PlayBook tablet? Leave us your thoughts below!

    Not a shocker not all, Blackberry is known for their security. Anyone who thought Apple was going to get it first (many did) are out their mind or never had a blackberry.
