VMware enables organizations to manage and secure Chrome devices alongside other endpoints with a unified, scalable platform.

Chrome OS can be managed throughout the entire device lifecycle using the unified platform for streamlined deployment, remote troubleshooting and reporting.

Policies, Chrome OS and Android apps can be deployed to Chrome devices using smart groups for granular assignment based on device, operating system, user role, geography, department, and more.

Workspace ONE supports multiple use cases and admins can deploy corporate devices, shared devices or configure Chrome devices to be used for kiosks or digital signage.

Feature highlights are:

  • Easily onboard Chrome devices out-of-the-box using enterprise credentials to reduce support tickets and help desk calls
  • Deploy Chrome OS and Android apps
  • Provide access to all work apps – cloud, web, native, virtual – and virtual Windows desktops with VMware Workspace ONE
  • Enable a seamless experience with single sign-on access to all apps and desktops
  • Deploy Chrome browser extensions and bookmarks to end users to enable more features and functionality
  • Gain real-time visibility into Chrome OS deployments and perform remote actions for troubleshooting
  • Require automatic updates to ensure that devices have the latest protected OS version running
  • Prevent unauthorized access to devices and remotely wipe a device if it's lost or stolen
  • Keep data secure by preventing access to restricted URLs, apps and Chrome browser extensions
  • Silently install certificates for additional network security

  • The below video shows how users can access enterprise applications with Single-Sign-On from their Chrome OS devices
