BlackBerry Announces The World’s Most Secure Phone, The DTEK50

Compare Guru
2016-08-01
BlackBerry’s DTKE50 proves that the company is committed to keeping its mobile dreams alive and more secure than ever before.
BlackBerry has announced its second Android handset, the interestingly named DTEK50 which the company calls, “the world’s most secure android smartphone”.  Looking for home insurance? Let CompareGuru help you.

How secure is the information on your smartphone?BB Side by Side

“We take our customers’ privacy seriously. That’s why we’re proud to have all the security and privacy functionality that’s built in our newest Android smartphone. DTEK50 merges the unique security and connectivity features BlackBerry is known for with the rich Android ecosystem,” said Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, Devices, BlackBerry. “DTEK50 adds to BlackBerry’s lineup of secure smartphones, providing choices to our customers with different price points on both BlackBerry 10 and Android platforms.”  

What makes the DTKE50 more secure than regular Android phones?

Rapid Security Patching: BlackBerry has a record of being the quickest to deliver security patches, setting the bar in incident response and patch management to protect your device from malicious threats. DTEK™ by BlackBerry App: Enables users to automatically monitor their OS and apps to know when their privacy could be at risk and to take action to improve it. The DTEK app also tracks applications and notifies you when someone is: taking pictures or videos without your knowledge, turning your microphone on, sending a text message, or accessing your contacts or location. Hardware Root of Trust: BlackBerry’s manufacturing process uses a proprietary technique that adds security from the start, allowing for the tracking, verification and provisioning of DTEK50. Secure Boot Process: Starting with the root of trust, each stage of DTEK50’s secure boot chain must first verify that the next component is fully intact before proceeding, ensuring your device has not been tampered with since the last restart. Android OS hardening: BlackBerry provides additional security patches, improved random number, address space generation and certificate pinning to make it more difficult for attackers to target a device by scrambling application/system memory. FIPS 140-2 Compliant Full Disk Encryption: Protects your private information, like pictures or bank information, from being stolen if you were to lose your phone.   BlackBerry’s DTEK50 encrypts all users’ information such as:
  • Business critical data
  • Personal data such as pictures, videos and contacts.
  • Malware protection is also built-in along with backup, wipe and restore capabilities.
  • Additional software provides users with visibility and control over which apps have personal info or  enable the microphone or camera.
