Google Chrome Enterprise

Google Chrome Enterprise is the business-focused solution for Chrome devices, Chrome browser and Chrome OS. Chrome Enterprise offers cloud-based management tools, integrations with third party products and 24/7 support for IT administrators.

Chrome Enterprise offers extra deployment and management features that cater to the sector’s increased needs for control and security. Chrome Enterprise is part of a push by Google to get Chromebooks accepted into the enterprise market.

Chrome Enterprise offers the general Chrome OS features with its automatic updates, multi-layered security, remote desktop, application virtualization support, preference syncing and cloud or native printing. Google has also made additional features available as it prepares to move into a segment typically dominated by Microsoft-based PCs and notebooks.

Among Chrome Enterprises added management features are:

  • Google Play Store apps
  • Chrome OS extensions
  • Chrome web browser
  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Printer management
  • Flexible fleet management
  • Updates

Chrome Enterprise also supports single sign-on, kiosk mode and integration of VMware on Chromebooks. Currently, Chrome Enterprise is offered under a yearly subscription service for $50 per device.

Along with changes to make Chromebooks more tempting to enterprises, Google is opening the Play Store to at least 25 models of Chromebooks. This change allows the netbooks to run over three million apps that run on Android-based mobile devices.
