Huawei Consumer BG will always adhere to its three key principles when developing business products, and building open, secure, and reliable software and hardware ecosystem capabilities to facilitate full digitalization for governments and large-scale enterprises.
One-stop office solutions for small- and medium-sized enterprises, will be built on Consumer BG’s accumulated smart office and cloud service prowess. Smart office features like Super Device and Mobile App Engine, allow for seamless multi-device and cross-ecosystem collaboration, while Huawei Mobile Cloud makes data transfers truly effortless, taking work efficiency to new heights.
Huawei provides customers with robust support in terms of product test standards, data security solutions, and full-lifecycle services, in order to meet the stricter needs of government and enterprise customers.
All Huawei Consumer BG business products have passed a battery of stringent quality assurance tests. Business desktops, for example, must pass explosive atmosphere, mechanical vibration, low air pressure, low temperature, high temperature, mechanical impact, mould, solar radiation, temperature impact, vibration, and dust, humidity, and acid atmosphere tests. Only select materials are used, and products are designed with an emphasis on reliability and security.
Huawei also provides multi-layer data security safeguards, to ensure airtight data transmission. The principle of “no disturbance, no tracking, and no leakage” is strictly adhered to with regard to privacy protection and incorporated into every step of product design and development.
App permissions have been re-sorted, with targeted controls available. Sensitive permissions related to private user data, such as call logs, messages, outgoing calls, and device information, have been cancelled. The access scope for albums is strictly controlled, and permission can be granted on an image-by-image basis. Huawei has also made a custom multi-screen collaboration solution available, which allows customers to add file filtering and sharing controls.
