BlackBerry Ltd. introduced a tablet computer aimed at government and corporate customers that it says can let users access consumer applications such as YouTube and WhatsApp while keeping confidential work-related information away from spies and crooks.

The SecuTABLET, shown at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany, is based on Samsung Electronics Co.’s Tab S 10.5 and uses International Business Machines Corp. software to wrap applications that hold secrets into a virtual container where they can’t be harmed by malware. Germany’s computer-security watchdog is certifying the device for classified government communication, BlackBerry’s Secusmart unit said on Saturday.
