Moreover, Chrome Enterprise subscription also allows employers to have more control over the way their employees use the chromebooks. Chrome devices have seen tremendous growth in education markets, and we are excited about collaborating to bring the speed, simplicity, security and shareability of Chrome devices to the enterprise.Today, Google launched Chrome Enterprise, which combines a broad set of enterprise capabilities, including Chrome Device Management, Active Directory support, printer readiness and more.

"Which is why Chrome Enterprise now gives customers the ability to manage all their Chrome devices from a single management solution". This integration allows employees to use their native credentials to authenticate across devices and Google Cloud Services like Google Play while centralizing management of user and device policies for IT admins.

To ease the migration process, Google is also offering on-premise integration trials so that admins can sign up and get going in a matter of minutes. It also integrates with popular endpoint and identity management solutions from VMware and Microsoft.

Google says that they have noticed that businesses have responded well to Chromebooks.

"I do believe that VMware is the first to offer UEM for Chrome". Workspace ONE is the first third-party solution that can manage Chrome devices.

VMware Workspace ONE, a digital workspace platform powered by VMware 'AirWatch UEM' technology, would enable the customers unify management of Chrome devices, alongside all other endpoints, from a single console.

Another nice feature is that Chrome Enterprise lets your IT admin specify which Android apps are installed on their Chrome OS devices - if they're supported. Chrome device users can even access full Windows desktops and applications, helping to accelerate the adoption of Chrome devices in the enterprise.

The entire point of releasing Chrome Enterprise is to appeal to the enterprise sector where companies would like to deploy (the cheaper) Chromebook devices but have been previously limited by the lack of device management features and lack of interoperability with existing Windows-based networks.

"As Chrome OS continues to gain momentum, our customers are eager to manage these devices consistently along with all other endpoints, including mobile devices".

As a result, tools for provisioning, configuring and securing mobile devices are being subsumed into larger product suites.

In plain words, Chrome Enterprise is a spinoff of Chromebooks for Work program.

The new features should help organizations in multiple ways, Karam said.
