Protection against current threats
Chrome devices proactively protect against threats prevalent on legacy systems.
Chrome OS is designed as a read-only operating system, and with primary file storage happening in the cloud, Chrome devices become inhospitable for bad actors.
- Low on-device footprint
- Read-only operating system
- Verified boot confirms the system is unmodified at boot up
Chrome OS and Chrome Browser use sandboxing to isolate processes and limit the scope of an attack. With the Google Admin console or your preferred EMM provider, IT administrators can blacklist applications that do not meet the security standards.
- App and extension blacklisting and whitelisting
- Managed Google Play
Devices are shielded from phishing attacks by prompting users before they enter a malicious site. Chrome Browser was also designed to work seamlessly with two-factor authentication methods to stop hackers using stolen passwords.
- Google Safe Browsing
- Password Alert Policy
- Security keys
