Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announces launch of Galaxy Book2 Business, a powerful new laptop, thanks to the 12-inch Intel® Core ™ processorand generation and equipped with features for security and productivity. The ideal tool to support companies and their employees in a new hybrid work environment.

Today, hybrid work has become the norm ”said KC Choi, EVP and Head of Global Mobile B2B, MX Business, at Samsung Electronics. Companies want to enable their employees to best adapt to this new way of working, thanks to technologies that foster creativity and collaboration, while protecting themselves from ever-increasing cyber threats.. Galaxy Book2 Business is designed to live up to these expectations and offers companies a high level of security, features designed to boost productivity and the full potential of the Galaxy ecosystem. »

Improved security

The development of teleworking has been accompanied by an increase in the risk of cyber attacks. Employees who work from home are more vulnerable because they have limited access to the security tools and infrastructure that are available when they are in person. Galaxy Book2 Business solves this problem by using Intel Hardware Shield technology and a secure embedded processor to protect the BIOS. Galaxy Book2 Business is also equipped with a monitoring feature that detects and tracks malicious attempts aimed at security-critical computer data and stops them before the operating system is damaged.

To achieve this, Galaxy Book2 Business has a hardware-based Root of Trust, which validates the BIOS and establishes a reliable chain of trust between the CPU, GPU and SPI flash memory. If Galaxy Book2 Business is under attack, the data is protected by the automatic BIOS recovery tool, which can detect threats during PC startup and automatically recover the BIOS from a backup.

IT implementation and decentralized unit administration have never been more important for businesses. That’s why Galaxy Book2 Business gives IT teams an extra layer of protection and first-class support designed for hybrid work environments. In addition to Intel Hardware Shield technology, the Galaxy Book2 Business can support Intel vPro processors, guaranteeing multi-level security. By monitoring both the BIOS and the operating system, Galaxy Book2 Business helps businesses avoid attacks and protect their sensitive data. Finally, Microsoft Secured-Core PC (SCPC) technology protects your device against kernel and firmware attacks so that malicious code can not corrupt the system.

Optimal productivity on the go as well as face to face

Galaxy Book2 Business is perfectly suited for video conferencing, especially thanks to Studio mode[2], which ensures optimal performance and image quality, regardless of the applications used (Google Meet, Microsoft Teams or Cisco Webex Meet). The automatic framing function[3] allows the user to stay in the center of the image even when it is moving. New background and virtual desktop effects minimize distractions, even when the employee is holding video conferences from busy locations. The two-way noise reduction system that uses AI[4] filters background noise from the user and the other party so that each word is heard clearly.

In case of consecutive meetings, it may be tedious to enter your password to reconnect. Thanks to the infrared sensor in Galaxy Book2 Business, users can easily and quickly log in using face recognition. Galaxy Book2 Business is also designed to withstand harsh working environments, such as high temperatures or high humidity.

Flexibility and connectivity

Employees can use the single sign-on feature associated with their Samsung account to identify themselves easily and securely. The Private Share function[5] from Samsung utilizes blockchain to encrypt and share confidential information. Affiliates can authorize access and set expiration dates for each file they send, so that the information remains proprietary and confidential. And if an employee relocates their Galaxy Book2 Business, SmartThings Find[6] allows you to find it.

Thanks to the Galaxy ecosystem, the Galaxy Book2 Business can sync with a Galaxy smartphone compatible with the Link to Windows feature[7]. The user can then send SMS and answer calls directly from his computer. Built-in App Continuity will also allow users to select recently used apps and open them on their Galaxy Book2 Business to continue where they left off. Fast sharing[8] allows sharing of large files by generating a link that is easy to share.

Availability

Galaxy Book2 Business will be available in anthracite color from April 20 with an introductory offer until June 30: for the purchase of a Galaxy Book2 Business, a T7 SSD is offered[9], for orders placed from Samsung’s website.
