Samsung makes Galaxy S III SAFE for IT departments
One, maybe, for those interested in the interface between corporate IT and mobile Android devices – Samsung has announced it will be covering the Galaxy S III smartphone in its “SAFE” management and synchronisation programme.
The idea is to help enterprise IT departments manage workers who are using the latest devices.
Matt Hamblen of ComputerWorld writes:
The SAFE program means Samsung has set up support and quality assurance for 338 smartphone management policies important to IT, including 256-bit encryption on the device, enhanced support for Microsoft’s Exchange ActiveSync, support for leading Virtual Private Network software and for a number of Mobile Device Management systems.
The article says Samsung will be providing an SDK that will enable third-party vendors to integrate their own networking and management software on the “SAFE”-compatible devices.
