Google has launched Chrome Enterprise Premium, an offering that can help simplify and strengthen endpoint security.

The tech giant said that the Chrome Enterprise Premium builds on the core capabilities available in Chrome Enterprise, which gives organizations the secure, reliable browser their employees prefer to use with management tools for IT and security teams built in.

Chrome Enterprise Premium offers additional advanced security capabilities, including:

  • Enterprise controls enforce policies, manage software updates and extensions to align with enterprise policies, and support RDP, SCP, SSH, and other TCP protocols,
  • Security insights and reporting support event reporting, device reporting, and forensic capabilities for enterprise-wide visibility, and can integrate with other Google and third-party security solutions,
  • Context-aware access controls can be scaled for web applications, can help enforce continuous Zero Trust access to SaaS and web-based apps with context-aware access control, and can mitigate data exfiltration risks for sanctioned and unsanctioned applications,
  • Threat and data protection delivers content inspection and data loss prevention, anti-malware, and anti-phishing using frontline intelligence and AI, dynamic URL filtering, and site categorization.

The organizations using Chrome Enterprise Premium benefit from Google’s world-class threat intelligence, security features, and Zero Trust access via Google’s secure global network.

Nick Reva, head of corporate security engineering at Snap, said that, “With Chrome Enterprise Premium, we have confidence in Google’s security expertise, including Project Zero’s cutting-edge security research and fast security patches. We set up data loss prevention restrictions and warnings for sharing sensitive information in applications like Generative AI platforms and noticed a noteworthy 50 percent reduction in content transfers.”

“We chose Chrome and Google as Roche’s secure enterprise browsing solution because it provides us with deep visibility and protections to keep our users and corporate data safe. Once the solution was turned on, we were able to identify and stop an attempt to exfiltrate a large amount of corporate information within hours,” commented Tim Ehrhart, domain head of information security at Roche.
