Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is one of the most beautiful looking smartphones in the world at this point in time, and Samsung has certainly done more than a fair job in rolling out the device to the masses recently. Well, Samsung intends to target enterprise users as well with the Galaxy S3, and hence will have to come up with an enterprise version by rolling out its new SAFE brand of devices. SAFE stands for “Samsung Approved for Enterprise”, which is Samsung’s attempt at making Android devices which are secure enough for corporate users in their environment. SAFE devices will be able to deliver enterprise tools including Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, support for VPN and Mobile Device Management, not to mention onboard AES-256 bit encryption.
Samsung intends to capture a larger group of the enterprise users with its SAFE2SWITCH program, where corporate customers are able to perform a trade in with their current smartphone, in exchange for a Samsung Galaxy S3 instead. This will be the first device that will feature SAFE features, and it will arrive from this July onwards for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and US Cellular.
