Samsung to speed up security updates for its Android devices
Posted on 6-Aug-2015 13:24 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung says it will implement a new Android security update process that fast tracks the security patches over the air when security vulnerabilities are uncovered. These security updates will take place regularly about once per month.

Samsung has recently fast tracked security updates to its Galaxy devices with the recent Android Stagefright issues working with the carriers and partners. Acknowledging the importance of time sensitivity in addressing major vulnerabilities, the company plans to further develop this process and implement it as a timely security update practice.

“With the recent security issues, we have been rethinking the approach to getting security updates to our devices in a more timely manner. Since software is constantly exploited in new ways, developing a fast response process to deliver security patches to our devices is critical to keep them protected. We believe that this new process will vastly improve the security of our devices and will aim to provide the best mobile experience possible for our users,” said Dong Jin Koh, EVP of Mobile Research and Development at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung is currently in conversation with carriers around the world to implement the new approach. In collaboration with carriers and partners, more details about the specific models and timelines will be released soon.
