Samsung focusing more on enterprise with 360 Services for Business



Enterprise is one of the most valuable segments in the mobile industry right now because no company has run away with it. One of the companies making a big play for enterprise customers is Samsung. The company announced 360 Services for Business, but we are not to sure how it differs from the existing KNOX security platform.

The new offering from Samsung focuses on support, management, security. 360 Services for Business is highlighted by Technical Support & Service Desk, Application Support, Security Support, Deployment Support, and Samsung MobileCare for Enterprise. The name of each feature speaks for itself. The most interesting would be the final one as it includes extended warranties for Samsung devices.

360 Services for Business will launch in early 2015 after testing is completed with select companies.

Hit the break for the full press release.

The S Pen has been improved annually since the Galaxy Note series was introduced in 2011. To really cover everything this year’s Galaxy Note 4 can do with the S Pen, Samsung has released a video showcasing its features. It feels more like an informational video than an advertisement.
