Samsung Electronics is joining Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended program, giving our customers an added guarantee that Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets meet and exceed the hardware and software requirements set out by Google for enterprise clients.
Starting in December 2020, Galaxy users with productivity devices, such as the S20 and Note20, and rugged devices such as the XCover Pro running Android 11 and above, will be able to enjoy added peace-of-mind thanks to this new certification. AER-certified products guarantee a consistent user experience in terms of device performance, work profiles and fully managed device setup flows with regular software updates and security patches.
Moving forward, this certification will be expanded to most Samsung devices incrementally to meet all our enterprise customer needs and budgets.
“Samsung is committed to helping our corporate customers modernize their business for the digital age. Our industry-leading enterprise offering allows businesses to customize their mobile solution for their specific needs with innovative hardware, easy-to-manage software and end-to-end security,” said K.C. Choi, EVP and Head of Global Mobile B2B Team. “By bringing Samsung smartphones and tablets to the AER program, we are helping to expand and strengthen the Android enterprise and make it easier for businesses to reach their goals.”
Launched in 2018, Android Enterprise Recommended is Google’s validation program for OEMs, EMMs, and MSPs. Samsung’s membership in this community strengthens the longstanding partnerships the two companies have enjoyed. These include:
- Harmonizing Android Enterprise (AE) and Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE) to offer a seamless experience for Android customers also looking for Samsung’s advanced capabilities.
- Synchronizing our mobile device enrollment services (Android Zero Touch and Knox Mobile Enrollment) to provide enterprise customers with a variety of services to meet their specific needs.
