Designed to empower enterprises to strengthen security and maximize productivity

Samsung Electronics today announced the release of Galaxy Book2 Business, a powerful new PC built on the vPro platform1 and packed with advanced security and productivity features to help businesses overcome the new realities of a hybrid work environment.

“We are in a new era where hybrid working is the norm,” said KC Choi, EVP and Head of Global Mobile B2B Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics. “Companies want to ensure that their workforce is able to perform at their best in this new environment, with technology that enables creativity, collaboration and productivity, while also protecting themselves against ever-increasing cyber threats. Galaxy Book2 Business is a PC designed for this hybrid world, providing enterprises with defense-level security, advanced productivity features and Galaxy connected experiences across devices and operating systems.”

Best-in-class security at every level

As remote working grew, so did cybersecurity threats. Enterprises focused on protecting home-based workers who may be more vulnerable to cyber risks, but have limited access to the security tools and infrastructure available in the office. Galaxy Book2 Business helps secure the new hybrid work environment using Samsung’s defensive security technology, Intel Hardware Shield technology, and a secure built-in processor to protect the BIOS. Galaxy Book2 Business also comes with a Tamper Alert feature that detects and tracks malicious attempts to compromise security-critical data and stop PC attacks before infiltrating the operating system.

Galaxy Book2 Business is able to stop attempts to compromise the system by establishing a hardware-based Root of Trust, which validates the BIOS and builds a trusted chain of trust between the CPU, the secure onboard processor, and the SPI flash. Should Galaxy Book2 Business become the target of an attack, valuable data is protected with BIOS auto-recovery, which can detect threats during the PC boot process and automatically restore the BIOS to a backup before corruption hits.

IT deployment and decentralized device management have never been more important for enterprises of all sizes, and Galaxy Book2 Business provides IT teams with additional layers of protection and the best support designed for today’s hybrid work environments. Galaxy Book2 Business PC built on Intel vPro provides reliable multi-level security and an Intel Hardware Shield that protects against hardware and OS attacks and reduces the chance of malware exploiting the OS. By monitoring both BIOS and OS levels, Galaxy Book2 Business helps enterprises evade attacks and keep sensitive data safe. In addition, Microsoft Secured-Core PC (SCPC) protects every device from kernel and firmware attacks, so that malicious code cannot damage the system.

Ultimate productivity in and out of the office

Video calls have become routine and the Galaxy Book2 Business delivers optimal performance, tailored for hybrid meetings and work. Whether you’re using video conferencing apps like Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Cisco Webex Meet, Studio Mode2 ensures that every online meeting has a crisp, clean, and professional look and feel. Auto Framing3 keeps the camera focused on the faces on the screen, while background effects such as background blur and virtual office settings minimize distractions and keep employees the center of attention even when taking calls from crowded locations. Each Galaxy Book2 Business PC automatically filters out static and background noise so voices come through clearly and every word is heard and understood.

When entering and exiting back-to-back meetings, typing in your password to log back into your laptop can be tedious. The Galaxy Book2 Business IR camera allows authorized users to log in with face detection for easy access that saves time. Galaxy Book2 Business is also designed to keep up with demanding work environments, such as extreme altitudes, temperatures or humidity.

A galaxy of flexible, connected experiences

To keep pace with today’s businesses, Galaxy Book2 Business provides the security solutions and connected power of the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem. Employees can use the Samsung Account Single Sign-On feature, which simplifies the authentication process by entering credentials only once. Samsung’s new blockchain-based Private Share4 also provides business customers with the most secure platform for encrypting and sharing confidential information. Employees can authorize access and set expiration dates for every file they send, keeping proprietary and privileged information secret. And should an employee lose their Galaxy Book2 Business PC, they can use Samsung’s SmartThings Find5 to search for their Galaxy devices and determine the location of each.

As part of the Galaxy ecosystem, Galaxy Book2 Business can sync with smartphone apps via Link to Windows6 to send text messages and take calls with both devices. The continuity of the crossover app allows users to select and open recently used phone apps on their Galaxy Book2 Business PC, so they can pick up where they left off. Samsung has also updated the Quick Share7 feature and merged it with Link Sharing so that users can instantly and easily share work with others, anywhere.
