22 Apr Samsung Renews Push Into The Enterprise With Galaxy S5
With the launch of its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, Samsung is firing all cylinders in an effort to penetrate the enterprise market.
The Galaxy S5 finds itself added to Samsung’s list of SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) devices, which offer a variety of features that keep the devices and the data stored on these devices, secure.
The Enterprise appears to be the new battlefront in the smartphone arena, with many of the top smartphone vendors facing tough competition in a saturated consumer space. Indeed, as stated by Dan Shey, practice director of research firm ABI “with the maturing of the smartphone market, we expect OEMs to increasingly broaden their enterprise offerings. The result is that the rankings earned by Samsung, Apple, and BlackBerry will both shift and be challenged as enterprise becomes more reliant on mobile devices, apps, and services.”
To further its push into the enterprise market, Samsung has used a combination of hardware and software to deliver a worthy contender for a businesses’ device of choice. Samsung has not only developed a powerhouse smartphone worthy of the flagship moniker, but it has also created an ecosystem to improve the security of data stored on its SAFE devices as well as adding or improving features to encourage productivity for end users.
At a glance, here is what the Galaxy S5 Offers:
- Quad-core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Processor
- 5.1 inch Super AMOLED full HD screen with 1080 X 1920 pixels (432 ppi)

- 16MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing
- HD Video recording

In addition to a powerful processor, impressive camera and 4G LTE compatibility, Samsung have made their flagship phone an attractive option for both end users and IT when considering which devices to offer or support in an enterprise environment.
