Is Samsung's SAFE certification actually useful or is it just a marketing ploy?
jack12 2 years ago
BYOD has been a growing trend, and as many of us know, a part of that trend that is not so awesome is making all of the devices that come through the door work with our MDM tools. I got an email about Samsung having a program that certifies that it's devices are SAFE, which is a "clever" acronym for Samsung Approved For Enterprise. Does anyone know if this actually means that there is anything new about SAFE devices, or is it just a catchy thing to put on the spec sheet when trying to nail down contracts with enterprise users?
