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

Hybrid working has become the norm these days”said KC Choi, EVP and Head of Global Mobile B2B, MX Business, at Samsung Electronics. Companies want to empower their employees to best adapt to this new way of working, thanks to technologies that promote creativity and collaboration, while protecting themselves against the ever-increasing cyberthreats.The Galaxy Book2 Business is designed to meet these expectations, providing businesses with a high level of security, features designed to enhance productivity and the full potential of the Galaxy ecosystem. †

Enhanced Security

The development of remote working is 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 when they are in person. The Galaxy Book2 Business solves this problem by using Intel Hardware Shield technology and a secure built-in processor to protect the BIOS. The Galaxy Book2 Business is also equipped with a monitoring function that detects, tracks and stops malicious attempts targeting security-critical computer data before the operating system becomes corrupted.

To achieve this, the Galaxy Book2 Business features 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 the Galaxy Book2 Business is attacked, the data is protected by the automatic BIOS recovery tool, which can detect threats during PC startup and automatically restore the BIOS from a backup.

IT deployment and decentralized device management have never been more important to businesses. That’s why Galaxy Book2 Business provides IT teams with 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, ensuring multi-level security. By monitoring both the BIOS and the operating system, the Galaxy Book2 Business helps businesses prevent attacks and protect their sensitive data. Finally, Microsoft Secured-Core PC (SCPC) technology protects the device from kernel and firmware attacks so that malicious code cannot damage the system.

Optimal productivity on the go and face-to-face

The Galaxy Book2 Business is perfectly adapted to video conference meetings, especially thanks to the Studio mode[2], which ensures optimal performance and image quality regardless of the applications used (Google Meet, Microsoft Teams or Cisco Webex Meet). The auto-framing feature[3] allows the user to stay in the center of the frame even when moving. New background and virtual desktop effects minimize distraction, even when the employee is videoconferencing from crowded locations. The two-way noise reduction system with AI[4] filters out background noise from the user and the other party so that every word can be heard clearly.

In the case of sequential meetings, typing your password to reconnect can be tedious. Thanks to the infrared sensor of the Galaxy Book2 Business, users can log in easily and quickly with facial recognition. The Galaxy Book2 Business is also designed to withstand harsh working environments, such as high temperatures or high humidity.

Flexibility and Connectivity

Employees can easily and securely identify themselves via the single sign-on function linked to their Samsung account. The Private Share feature[5] Samsung uses blockchain to encrypt and share confidential information. Employees can authorize access and set expiration dates for every file they send, keeping the information proprietary and confidential. And if an employee loses their Galaxy Book2 Business, SmartThings Find[6] allows you to locate it.

The Galaxy ecosystem allows the Galaxy Book2 Business to sync with a Galaxy smartphone compatible with the Link to Windows feature[7]† The user can then send text messages and take calls directly from his computer. Built-in app continuity allows users to select recently used apps and open them on their Galaxy Book2 Business to pick up where they left off. Share quickly[8] enables sharing of large files by generating an easy-to-share link.
