Building a more integrated ecosystem to keep your enterprise secure

It isn’t always clear where your next threat will come from, but being prepared is the best possible response plan. As you steer your enterprise through an increasingly complex world, you need to be ready to thwart cyberattacks online. At Google, we have always been committed to protecting users online from cyberattacks, from Chrome browser, which protects billions of devices daily with Google’s Safe Browsing technology to Chrome OS devices, which have never had a reported successful ransomware attack, nor has there been any evidence of a documented, successful virus attack.

But protection against online threats requires more than securing an endpoint or browser - it requires securing the full computing stack, from silicon to cloud. To further that goal, we’re announcing new ways to help you stay prepared for potential security threats with: 

  • New partner security integrations 

  • New data controls in Chrome OS to help secure your data

  • Latest hardware updates to keep your enterprise safe

Together, these new features help accelerate our goal of moving organizations from legacy systems to more secure, cloud-first platforms, while also streamlining IT workflows. 

New partner security integrations 

To help security teams better manage the tools they need to use, we’re introducing the Chrome Enterprise Connectors Framework, a collection of plug-and-play integrations with industry-leading security solution providers. These integrations offer better protection for users and endpoints, and give IT teams more tools to report on security incidents. Overall, we’re making it easier to help organizations work toward a Zero Trust model.

Integrations are available right now for Chrome browser and Chrome OS in these areas:

There's more good news, we have created a Security & Trust category within Chrome Enterprise Recommended to help enterprises find validated partner solutions and integrations. For more information on getting started with these integrations, you can also visit the Chrome Enterprise Help Center page.

New data controls in Chrome OS to help secure your data

It is absolutely critical to protect your most sensitive data from being leaked or stolen. Chrome OS Data ControlsNew will prevent data leakage on endpoints by allowing IT to define rules within Chrome OS on when to trigger controls for different actions, including copy and paste, screen capture, printing, and other activities that could lead to data loss. You can request access to the Trusted Tester Program here. Stay tuned for updates.

Latest hardware updates to keep your enterprise safe

Device security is equally important for both end users and IT. HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook, the first Chrome OS device with Intel vPro® Enterprise, allows users to work confidently with features like HP Privacy Camera, Fingerprint Sensor, and optional HP Sure View privacy screen. HP Proactive Insights provides IT with access to critical device health, performance and security insights to resolve problems before they happen. Sign up for a free trial here.

Intel vPro® Enterprise for Chrome OS provides comprehensive hardware-based security via two key features: Key Locker, which can protect disk encryption keys and prevent leaks, and Intel® Total Memory Encryption (Intel® TME), which helps ensure data leaving the chip to system memory is encrypted.
