Samsung introduces suite of security features for Android

The Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be the first Samsung Approved for Enterprise (SAFE) devices provided to consumers who wish to use their own mobile devices in both their business and personal lives.

SAFE 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.

SAFE was first introduced to Samsung’s enterprise customers in October 2011. As more organizations are adopting “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies, Samsung recognized that consumers are increasingly interested in devices that effectively and elegantly meet their personal and business mobile needs.
