Google Rolls Out New Security Features for Chrome Enterprise

The business-friendly browser now includes new admin controls, EMM partnerships, and additions to help manage Active Directory.

Google this week added several security features to Chrome Enterprise, the business-friendly version of its browser. Chrome Enterprise was launched in 2009 to provide access to enterprise app stores, added security controls, 24/7 support, and integration with cloud and on-premise management tools VMware Workspace ONE and Microsoft Active Directory.

Updates include four new enterprise mobility management (EMM) partnerships with Cisco Meraki, Citrix XenMobile, IBM MaaS360, and ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus. These add to its first EMM partnership with VMware AirWatch, established last year.

Google is also adding support to manage Chrome OS on legacy infrastructure. Admins can configure managed extensions directly through Group Policy Objects so users can authenticate to Kerberos and NTLMv2 endpoints on their local network directly from the browser. Further, it's extending support for common Active Directory setups, like multiple domain scenarios.

Finally, it's expanding management controls in both the Chrome browser and Chrome OS. Per-permission extension blacklisting lets admins authorize employee access to more extensions in the Chrome Web Store but maintain granular control across Web properties. Sign-ins can be disabled from outdated operating systems, and admins can use device-wide certificates to ensure only managed devices connect to single sign-on servers.
