Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) is a line of smartphones and tablets manufactured to meet specific enterprise management and security criteria, including interoperability with third-party mobile device management (MDM) and virtual private network (VPN) software.
Samsung's goal is to set SAFE devices apart from other Android smartphones and tablets, which have faced questions about security and enterprise readiness. Smartphones and tablets in the SAFE program offer these four broad capabilities:
- Enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
- VPN connectivity
- On-device encryption using the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard
- A mobile device management (MDM) component
Samsung began offering SAFE devices in January 2012.
