Samsung Extends Security Updates for Galaxy Products Launched since 2019

Samsung Electronics will offer monthly and quarterly security updates for a minimum of four years after the initial release of Galaxy series of gadgets.

Mobile Security has been a focus for Samsung with features such as the defense-grade security platform and cutting-edge technologies such as the industry’s strongest security chip, the embedded Secure Element (eSE); a Secure Processor to protect against physical attacks; and the recently introduced Knox Vault, which adds another layer of security. As one of the few companies to design and develop its own products, software and services, Samsung offers true end-to-end protection, from the moment new product planning begins until a product is retired. 

Over the past decade, Samsung has secured over 130 models, working closely with its OS and chipset partners, as well as 200 carriers around the world. Samsung has worked closely with over 1,000 partners to establish security standards for all Android devices, including the first-of-its-kind regular security update program in 2015, and partnered with the broader security research community to ensure consumers have the most secure mobile experience possible.
