Google has launched a new subscription service for businesses that use Chrome OS devices. Building on Chromebooks for Business, which it replaces, Chrome Enterprise will have an annual cost of $50 per device.
Aimed at large businesses this new susbscription adds additional cababilities to attract more businesses to adopt Chrome OS devices and use G Suite, the Google Cloud collaborative productivity amd management tools.
In particular, Chrome Enterprise is fully compatible with Microsoft Active Directory infrastructure and integrates with VMware Workspace ONE, a widely used management tool.
According to Chrome Enterprise Product Manager, David Karam:
The compatibility of Chrome Enterprise with VMware Workspace ONE will enable organizations to deliver device policies using customizable assignment of groups based on geography, device platform, department, role, and more – simplifying policy enforcement across the company.
Another feature introduced in Enterprise is integrated Single Sign On Support without requiring admins to configure a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) Single Sign On.
Other features include 24/7 enterprise support, managed OS updates and printer management and theft prevention. Here's the full list: .
Karam's announcement also notes that Chrome Enterprise includes access to enterprise app storefronts. This, of course, opens up the opportunities for developers to create and sell apps in this potentially lucrative market.
