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: .
