Here’s why the Pope and Vatican City’s Swiss Guards use Samsung Galaxy
The Pontifical Swiss Guard (Guardia Svizzera Pontificia or GSP) is tasked with protecting the Pope and the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City, which is visited by an average of 25,000 tourists per day. But, do you know why the Pope and Vatican City’s Swiss Guards use Samsung Galaxy?

The name “Swiss” is attached to the name of the Vatican Guard, which has been protecting the Pope in the Vatican since the Renaissance in 1506. In the past, the Pope was protected with a spear, but now the Vatican Guard has modernized its tactics and technology and built a digital security system.
In this new environment, the Swiss Guard chose “Knox Suite”, a powerful mobile device management platform developed by Samsung for Galaxy devices. System administrators of the Pontifical Guard can remotely monitor and manage the location of all security devices, as well as remotely wipe data if a device is lost or stolen.
When a security threat is expected, the info can be shared in real-time on multiple devices owned by the Swiss Guards, and the patrol leader can check the deployment status of all members at a glance, which is effective in responding to emergency situations.
The Swiss Guards considered security as the top priority but also considered the durability of the product as important. Samsung’s rugged Galaxy devices, which focus on robustness, are IP68 rated, protecting devices from water and dust, and are resistant to tolerable shocks.
The Galaxy Tab Active 2 has improved touch feeling while wearing gloves considering the uniform of the guards, and the battery lasts for a long time and can be easily replaced, which is essential in emergency situations.
And the Galaxy Tab Active 3 is equipped with a high-resolution display and special keys for immediate access at important moments, such as ‘Push to Talk’, a radio communication method.
In addition, Samsung DeX, which provides an experience as if using a PC when connected to a monitor or TV, also supports work convenience. Lastly, the fact that you can receive continuous support in case of product problems has also become a reason for being chosen by the Swiss Guard with a history of hundreds of years.
