Today the smartphone has become something more than a technological piece of entertainment and communication, because in it we carry a lot of us, even within a smartphone there may be sensitive information that compromises our privacy and puts the company at risk for that we work
Due to the importance of telephones, and the way in which we use them, it is common that some companies are thinking of constantly launching security updates that protect us from any type of cyberattack. For this reason Samsung has launched a new program called Enterprise Editionwhere to offer 4 years of security updates.
The phones that belong to this program will be guaranteed updates monthly or quarterly, all depending on the model, but for now it seems that this is only for devices sold under this program, so if you bought one of the devices the list, you probably won't be guaranteed 4 years of updates.
Likewise, the program has currently been launched in the United Kingdom, but it is expected to reach more passes very soon, what is a fact is that the company will be launching more equipment for this program in the coming months.
What phones belong to the Galaxy Enterprise Edition?
- Galaxy S10
- Galaxy S10e
- Galaxy Note 10
- Galaxy A50
- Galaxy A40
- Galaxy XCover 4s.
In the case of the Galaxy S and Note series, they will receive monthly security updates, while the rest will do so quarterly.
Is there any important difference with the other devices?
Although many users may think that this is an important advance in Samsung, the reality is that there seems to be no special deal with security updates. And as SamMobile mentions, there are several phones that are receiving quarterly security updates and have already been in the market for more than 3 years, a specific case is that of the Galaxy S7, which today continues to receive security patches.
It is likely that only the S and Note line will benefit from security updates for more than 3 years without necessarily being in the business plan.
Of course, Samsung offers other advantages in the Enterprise Edition such as improved support and special firmware to manage security updates, although this program is designed for companies to hire several computers for their workers, and not as such for a user to go to the store for one of these phones.
