Samsung Electronics Canada announced the release of Galaxy Book2 Business, a powerful new PC built on the vPro platform and packed with advanced security and productivity features to help businesses conquer the new reality 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. “Enterprises want to ensure their workforce can be their very best in this new environment, with technology that enables creativity, collaboration and productivity, while also protecting themselves from ever-increasing cyber threats. Galaxy Book2 Business is a PC designed for this hybrid world, empowering enterprises with defense-grade security, advanced productivity features and connected Galaxy experiences across devices and operating systems.”
As remote work increased, so did cybersecurity threats. Enterprises focused on protecting employees working from home who can 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 the Samsung defense-grade security technology, Intel Hardware Shield Technology, and an embedded processor to protect BIOS. The PC is also equipped with a Tamper Alert function that detects and tracks malicious attempts to interfere with security-critical data and to help stop PC attacks before the operating system is infiltrated.
Galaxy Book2 Business helps to stop attempts to compromise its system by establishing a Hardware-based Root of Trust, which validates BIOS and builds a dependable trust chain between the CPU, the embedded processor and SPI flash. Should it become the target of an attack, valuable data is secured with BIOS auto-recovery, which can detect threats during the PC’s boot process and automatically restore the BIOS to a backup copy before corruption strikes.
IT deployment and decentralized device management have never been more important for enterprises of all sizes, and Galaxy Book2 Business equips IT teams with added layers of protection and excellent support designed for today’s hybrid work environments. Built on Intel vPro, the PC ensures reliable, multi-level security and an Intel Hardware Shield that helps protect against hardware and OS attacks and reduces the chances of malware exploiting the OS. By monitoring both BIOS and OS levels, Galaxy Book2 Business helps enterprises evade attacks and keep sensitive data safe. Plus, Microsoft Secured-Core PC (SCPC) protects each device from kernel and firmware attacks to prevent malicious codes from corrupting the system.
Video calls have become routine and Galaxy Book2 Business delivers optimal performance tailor-made for hybrid meetings and work. Whether using video-conferencing apps such as Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Cisco Webex Meet, Studio Mode ensures every online meeting has a crisp, clean and professional feel. Auto-Framing keeps the camera focused on the faces on-screen while Background Effects like blurred background and virtual office settings minimize distractions and enable employees to be the center of attention, even when taking calls from busy locations. Every Galaxy Book2 Business automatically filters static and background sounds, so voices come through clearly and every word is heard and understood.
When you’re in and out of back-to-back meetings, typing in your password to log back into your laptop can feel tedious. With the IR camera on the Galaxy Book2 Business, authorized users can save time by easily logging in through facial detection. The PC is also designed to keep up with rigorous work environments such as excessive altitudes, temperatures or humidity.
To keep up with today’s businesses, Galaxy Book2 Business offers the security solutions and seamless connectivity with other Samsung Galaxy products. Employees can use the Samsung Account Single Sign-On feature which simplifies the authentication process by requiring credentials to be entered only once. The new blockchain-based Private Share feature also gives enterprise customers a safe platform for encrypting and sharing confidential information. Employees can authorize access and set expiration dates for every file they send, so proprietary and privileged information can stay classified. If an employee misplaces their Galaxy Book2 Business PC at any point, they can use SmartThings Find to search for their Galaxy devices and pinpoint the location of each one.
As part of the Galaxy ecosystem, Galaxy Book2 Business can easily sync with smartphone apps through Link to Windows to send texts and take calls using both devices. The crossover app continuity also enables users to select recently used phone apps and open them up on their PC, so they can pick up right where they left off. Samsung has also updated its Quick Share feature and merged it with Link Sharing, so users can instantly and easily share work with others from anywhere.
Galaxy Book2 Business will be available for purchase in Graphite for $2,399.99 (our regular price) starting April 1stat Samsung.ca, Samsung Experience Stores and major retailer partners across Canada.
