Samsung places a strong focus on enterprise-ready devices that meet the needs of business professionals for everyday productivity. This is reiterated by the recently unveiled Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, which offer a bouquet of first-of-its-kind technology. The Samsung GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge redefines the future of enterprise mobility.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are equipped with defense-grade security and enhanced manageability in order to foster a new level of productivity for business professionals and provide industry leading, out-of-the-box business solutions. The devices come fully equipped and preloaded with Microsoft Office Mobile and OneNote and offers 115GB of additional free cloud service for two years with Microsoft One Drive, allowing for extra storage space that business professionals need for various documents.

In addition, through Samsung’s longstanding partnerships with major enterprise technology companies, solutions from providers including Cisco and Oracle work seamlessly on the S6 software platform. Other enterprise-specific features include faster, more powerful functionality via high performing chipset (14nm mobile processor) and 64bit OS, improved battery life with faster charging (4-hr/10 min) and enhanced email experience and multi-tasking features for business professionals.

Security features powered by KNOX

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are built on KNOX, a globally recognized security platform that provides real-time protection for your device and data from malicious attacks. These new devices are ready for immediate adoption in the enterprise market. In addition, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge feature a secure fingerprint sensor where users can simply press their finger against the home key – from any angle – and have their fingerprint read.

With KNOX 2.4 enhancements, managing mobile devices is significantly easier for IT departments and provide peace-of-mind through its government accreditation in the US, Canada, UK, Finland and Australia. The newest KNOX upgrade includes S6 MDM Enrollment, One-time Pass Framework, Enterprise billing, and more, to improving the IT usability for device management.

Other important security features include:

  • Knox Active Protection (KAP) – Features strict checking of device firmware integrity
  • Secure Boot & Trusted Boot – Ensures that the software on the device is from a trusted source (i.e. authenticated) and not modified from the original Samsung design
  • SE Android – Enhanced for S6, this limits the permissions of certain software operations to access highly sensitive parts of the device
  • Rollback Prevention – Prevents replacement of a device binary image with an older version of that image
