Technical specifications for the tablet’s development stipulate that it should have access to process specific data constituting a trade secret, as well as other confidential data of Gazprom that is located in the corporate data storage of the company.

However, Gazprom has implemented technical solutions that allow providing a secure mobile remote connection to specific information resources in case if needed,” the company’s press service explained.
