Samsung has released an Enterprise Edition of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Ultra in Australia. These are the exact same hardware as the regular S23 models but feature more advanced enterprise tools built in. Unlike last year, the Plus model is not part of the Enterprise Edition lineup.
The enterprise features include a 1-year subscription to the Samsung Knox Suite. This has built-in protection against malware, hacking and other cyber security threats. Also, it allows the company’s IT department to manage a fleet of phones remotely.
The Galaxy S23 Enterprise Edition come with Microsoft and Google cloud productivity tools pre-installed as well (note: editing Microsoft Office docs still requires a license).
Samsung will keep the two Enterprise Edition phones available for 2 years after launch and it will supply critical OS updates and security patches for up to 5 years.
There’s no word on pricing, but these will be acquired through bulk orders and each company will probably negotiate its own deal.
“Businesses need devices that are not only powerful and secure but also easy to use and manage,” said Garry McGregor, Vice President, Mobile Experience Division, Samsung Electronics Australia.
