While the Google Chrome platform is ideal for accessing Google Apps, SaaS and other cloud-based services, Microsoft Windows applications continue to play an essential role in most organizations. Read this paper to learn more.
In this complimentary report, Cloud Sherpas shares results that uncover the shortcomings of the primary, on premise computing devices typically in use today, including extended wait times for users and high maintenance requirements for IT that lead to significant productivity losses for both groups.
How can IT safely enable a mobile workforce in the face
of an ever changing and increasingly sophisticated world
of cyber threats? The answer is a solution that securely
delivers and manages seamless access to Windows
desktops, apps, and data to Chrome OS, the secure by
design endpoint operating system.
IT can add a critical layer of security with the web browser. Chrome Browser is setting the standard for web safety and stability in the enterprise. Watch this animation to hear about how Chrome is protecting your users' browser experience as they do more work in the cloud.
As enterprises contine to adopt web-based apps, users spend more time their web browser than ever before. With Chrome Browser, IT can set a variety of policies to help users be more productive across the web. From enabling security policies that protect users, to making to making it easy to access needed boomarks and extensions, IT can offer users a better browsing experience to support users as they get their job done.
"Chrome Browser provides secure, trusted access to data, apps, and cloud services, connecting employees on any device to a new generation of powerful tools for work. With proactive securitymeasures protecting them while they work, users get a consistent, customizable experience
whenever and wherever they access it."
In the year 2016 alone, the world learned about security breaches that compromised nearly 2 billion records.1 Employee endpoints are increasingly targeted: Nearly two-thirds (64%) of external attacks last year targeted a corporate-owned, employee-owned, or mobile device.2 Data breaches cost companies time and money, weaken brand reputation, and jeopardize customer and employee trust.
Browsers combined with cloud-based services have effectively replaced desktop software, with an average of 1,053 cloud services in user per enterprise. This guide identifies key security features for IT administrators to consider when selecting a browser.
To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates.
EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication.
Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.”
For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.
In the Top 5 Reasons Why Enterprises Are Going Google, Cloud Sherpas explores why leading organizations like these have prepared for the digital workplace of tomorrow by moving their email and collaboration platforms to Google Apps for Work, such as:
Eliminating the need to manage hardware or software
Embracing a mobile, BYOD culture
Reducing IT costs and infrastructure
