SAFE provides a comprehensive approach to making Android™ devices secure and manageable by systematically meeting the rapidly evolving needs of IT and the growing number of businesses allowing employees to “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) to work. Samsung created SAFE as a way to defragment the Android OS across its multiple versions on U.S. carriers. Out of the box, the SAFE-branded Galaxy S III supports a full suite of enterprise-ready features and capabilities with support for 338 IT Policies.1 This includes on-device AES-256 bit encryption, enhanced support for Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® and support for industry-leading Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions. With SOTI’s successful completion of the Samsung SAFE quality assurance process, SOTI MobiControl on Samsung SAFE devices now delivers secure, differentiated security solutions for business users.
