10 ways Chrome Enterprise protects employees and businesses

 

As organisations increase their productivity through the use of cloud and SaaS apps, managing business risk makes IT security even more vital. They have to guard the organisation against external attacks and internal vulnerabilities while keeping the business moving. According to PurpleSec’s Cyber Security Statistics for 2019, malware and web-based attacks are the two most costly attack types and companies spend an average of $2.4 million to ward off these threats. Ransomware attacks are expected to cost an estimated $6 trillion annually by 2021.

Every year, Google introduces new security features to ensure that organisations and their employees have the resources to be safer and secure online. Chromebooks adds another layer of security to help IT administrators protect employees from harmful attacks. 

Here’s a brief look at how Chrome Enterprise keeps your employees and business protected.

Phishing prevention 

Safe Browsing 

Unidentified dangerous sites can harm devices or cause problems when your employees are browsing online. With Google Chrome Safe Browsing, your employees are warned about malicious sites before they navigate to them, helping to deter negligent behaviour. 

Password protection

Help keep your organisation’s data safe by mitigating phishing attacks caused by password thefts. Password Alert Policy requires employees to reset their password when used with an unauthorised site, thus reducing the risk of a potential security breach.

Security keys

Google’s Titan Security Key helps to prevent hackers from logging into accounts when login details and passwords are compromised. By providing a second step of authentication after your password, security keys help prevent phishing and keep out attackers that could steal restricted information.

Protection from ransomware and other malicious software

Background auto-updates and small on-device data footprint

Seamless background auto-updates address vulnerabilities before they affect employees and your business without interrupting workflows. Since Chromebooks are cloud-native by design, your files and customisations are primarily stored safely in the cloud, protected from bad actors by Google’s infrastructure.

ClusterFuzz

Chrome OS uses ClusterFuzz to help rapidly find potential security vulnerabilities before they affect users. Employees can focus on what matters most without worrying about breaches and external attacks.

Prevent OS tampering

All Chromebooks use verified boot to confirm the operating system is an authentic, safe, Google-distributed build. With two versions of Chrome OS on every device, Chromebooks can proceed with boot-up even if one OS has been tampered with.

Google Security Modules

Chrome devices ensure stored user data are encrypted with keys stored on tamper-resistant hardware called the Google Security Module (learn more in the ebook, Cloud-Native Security for Endpoints). 

Ephemeral mode

With Chrome Enterprise, Chromebooks can be set up to wipe all data from the device at the end of your session. Enabling ephemeral mode reduces the chances of any browsing information being left behind on a user’s device.

Block malicious apps & URLs

Blacklisting URLs 

By blacklisting specific URLs or sets of websites through the Google Admin console, you can restrict employee access to malicious sites. 

Google Play Protect

Google Play Protect helps detect potentially harmful applications in a variety of ways including static analysis, dynamic analysis, and machine learning and prevents your employees from downloading them.
Google’s vision with Chrome Enterprise is to secure cloud entry so that every enterprise can work smarter and stay safe and make work easier and more meaningful for everyone.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.
