Samsung Galaxy Enterprise Edition – new products for professional mobility
Samsung Galaxy Enterprise Edition refers to a suite of hardware and software solutions focused on the mobility needs of businesses rather than the needs of a consumer.
While a business can buy a consumer phone or tablet, these devices are not about: security, financing, lifecycle management, maximizing productivity, dual profiles (business and personal) and 24/7 assistance
The full story of the Samsung Galaxy Enterprise Edition can be found in our sister post Small business responses.

Danny Mandrides, Director of Samsung’s corporate and government mobile enterprise,
“I lead a team of professionals who are empowering Australian businesses to rethink how mobile devices and applications can improve their business processes and increase productivity. Mobile technologies such as smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, M2M, IoT and apps are at the heart of business disruption and transformation. “
Australian Signals Branch approved sensitive and protected use
The icing on the cake is the acceptance of the Galaxy S20 FE, S20 FE 5G, Note20 and Note20 5G by the Australian Signals Directorate. These Samsung mobile devices are approved for use in “sensitive” and “protected” deployments. The Galaxy S20 FE (GadgetGuy review here 9.8 / 10) brings a $ 799 device to a market dominated by iOS devices costing two to three times as much.
The Gadget Guy catch is regardless of the size of your business. It may be helpful to speak to Samsung’s sales division before visiting Telstra or JB to purchase a few phones or tablets. It can open your eyes to benefits you never considered.
