German gives thumbs-up to BlackBerry's acquisition of Secusmart

Germany has backed BlackBerry's acquisition of mobile security company Secusmart. The government wanted to make sure that the purchase would not be a threat to Germany's security interests, as many government officials in the country use devices with Secusmart encryption.

Secusmart offers high-security voice and data encryption, along with anti-eavesdropping software for its customers, a fact that BlackBerry is likely to put front and center when pitching customers on their devices. These offerings are likely to appeal to security-minded organizations like businesses and governments.
