Samsung Built to Last in Tough Environments

Ensure your smart devices are better secured and durable to set your organization up for success

Rugged and Durable

With many workers and decision makers in the public sector often on-the-go, finding a rugged mobile device that can keep up with a fastpaced lifestyle can be challenging. Whether it be outdoors, in harsh environments, moving in and out of vehicles or from the field to the office, your employees need to be prepared with the right technology to navigate your day-to-day tasks. While many use other equipment built for fieldwork, your mobile devices should be no exception.

Enter the innovative lineup of rugged mobile devices from Samsung Electronics Canada, featuring the Galaxy XCover Pro, Galaxy Tab Active Pro and Galaxy Tab Active2, built to withstand usage in tough environments, including inclement weather. The lineup is IP68 rated1, meaning the devices are resistant to dust and water, and tested against military specification MIL-STD-810G2, a subset of 21 specific environmental conditions, including temperature, dust, shock/vibration, and low pressure/high altitude. With enhanced touch sensitivity, these devices can also be used while wearing gloves, making it easier to communicate urgent and critical information3.

Traditional rugged devices often appear chunky in appearance, making them less stylish for the office or professional settings. In comparison, the Galaxy XCover Pro sports a highly sleek and light profile, making it a premium choice not only presentable in the boardroom, but for mobile working. Moreover, the device’s battery is replaceable4, allowing you to swap in a fresh battery if you aren’t near a power source. Today’s organizations are interested in procuring reliable devices, and Samsung provides rugged devices that keep you connected on the go. Use devices in challenging environments such as fieldwork. Get added peace of mind with these durable devices from Samsung so that your IT team can focus on assisting your team in the field. A cost effective solution, keep your team productive and on the go even on long shifts.

Secure and Manageable

Security and accessibility are of utmost priority to those in the public sector. Samsung has equipped these rugged devices with Knox Security — built right into the devices from the chip up. Knox Security consists of overlapping defense and security mechanisms that help protect against intrusion, malware and more malicious threats that may come with high profile and sensitive information.

The Galaxy Tab Active2, secured by Knox, is a rugged device that is FIPS 140-25 and NIAP common criteria6 certified, meaning it helps provide a high level of security for your organization.

Increased productivity

When on-the-go, the tools you use also need to be convenient and help productivity at every step of your day. For example, frontline and emergency service workers may need to record data on-site and return to the station to send reports. Using the Galaxy Tab Active Pro, it can capture an area or scene by taking a photo and then use the S Pen to jot down notes or mark up images directly on the screen.

With the Galaxy XCover Pro, you can even launch the Microsoft Teams walkie-talkie feature, ‘Push-to-Talk’ (PTT), helping reduce radio equipment and assisting you to make quick contact to confirm notes on the field or if spread out, all with a smartphone.

From there, you can take the device back to your car and using Samsung DeX, attach the tablet to your keyboard accessory (sold separately)7 to type notes while top of mind. To finalize the report, you can head back to base and plug into a workstation to experience DeX on a computer monitor when connected via an HDMI cable (sold separately)7. This solution can provide an alternative to a laptop/PC and can helps bring computing power even to frontline workers away from an office desk.

Increased Efficiency in the New Normal

More and more, work-life solutions are changing and relying on convenience through multiple devices as we create our own individual satellite offices. For those going back to an office, work stations will hopefully be reconfigured for additional safety and distance between workers, and mobility will be a key function for computing. Devices like tablets can help refine the office experience by allowing for less clutter, movement and easy transition from home to

With solutions like DeX plugged into the Galaxy Tab Active Pro, mobile work stations function efficiently, and with access to free Microsoft Office apps, organizations can stay productive and save on desktop licensing fees8.
