SAFE was first introduced to Samsung’s enterprise customers in October 2011. It is an exclusive suite of security features delivering enterprise-friendly capabilities above and beyond standard Android platform features to safeguard sensitive data and communications such as:
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) – Maximizing flexibility. SAFE addresses even businesses’ most challenging management and security concerns through relationships with leading MDM providers such as SOTI.
- On-Device Encryption – Maximizing security. Samsung offers AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption to mitigate the elevated risks of virtual and physical attack while the device is used for enterprise purposes. SAFE™ devices help prevent unauthorized access to mobile data by leveraging on-device encryption, including data on the microSD™ card.
- Virtual Private Network (VPN) – Maximizing accessibility. Samsung works with several global VPN providers such as Cisco™, Juniper® and others to enable fast, secure and reliable global corporate connectivity. SAFE™ devices support protocols and authentication measures for better security and faster access for enhanced off-site productivity.
- Corporate Email/Calendar/Contacts – Maximizing efficiency. SAFE devices offer extensive support for communication systems such as Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®. Samsung SAFE™ devices support additional capabilities above and beyond stock smartphone and tablet operating systems, maximizing the efficiency and productivity for enterprise users.
This is a suite of enterprise solutions for Samsung smartphones and tablets. It isn’t only limited to the newly announced Note and 7.7 tablet! SAFE is a big help for businesses. Tim Wagner who is VP and General Manager of B2B Sales for Samsung Mobile said “More and more employees are demanding greater choice in the mobile devices they carry for both work and personal use. Their standards for performance and design are high and their employer’s security criteria are even higher. Both the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 live up to these standards and provide a ‘SAFE Landing’ for the large number of users moving away from competitive platforms.”
