Microsoft and Samsung team up to boost work phone security

We've all been there – that heart-stopping moment when you realize you left your work phone at the coffee shop. It's not just the device itself; it's the confidential business data it holds that keeps you up at night.

But worry no more. Microsoft and Samsung have joined hands to make work phones safer. This month, they're unveiling an innovative solution to safeguard Samsung Galaxy devices used in the workplace.

How does it work?

They're using something called "on-device attestation." It's like having a security guard for your phone, allowing companies to check if mobile devices have been tampered with, right down to their core.

Samsung contributes its software and hardware innovations, while Microsoft offers its expertise in endpoint management.

What sets this apart from other attestation tools is that it doesn't rely on a network connection or access to cloud services. It's reliable no matter where you are or what kind of device you're using.

This solution will launch alongside Microsoft Intune, a unified endpoint management service for both corporate and personal devices. It'll be available on selected Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets, especially those "Secured by Knox."

Whether you're working from the office, a bustling coffee shop, or a remote cabin, your device is now safer.

In the business world, your phone is more than just a communication tool – it's a treasure trove of sensitive data. Thanks to Microsoft and Samsung, that treasure trove just got a whole lot more secure.
