Chrome Enterprise expands ecosystem to strengthen endpoint security and Zero Trust access

The modern workplace relies on web-based applications and cloud services, making browsers and their sensitive data a primary target for attackers. While the risks are significant, Chrome Enterprise can help organizations simplify and strengthen their endpoint security with secure enterprise browsing. 

Following our recent Chrome Enterprise Premium launch, today at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, we’re announcing a growing ecosystem of security providers who are working with us to extend Chrome Enterprise’s browser-based protections and help enterprises protect their users working on the web and across corporate applications. 

Expanding Zero Trust protections with Zscaler

Chrome Enterprise Premium offers advanced security across SaaS and private web applications for enterprises. Many organizations rely on Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) as an improved option over VPNs and firewalls to provide secure, Zero Trust access to private applications on-premises and in the cloud. Now security operations teams can add a layer of additional safeguards through Chrome Enterprise Premium, including: 

Data protections: Critical DLP functions including data exfiltration controls, copy, paste, and print restrictions, and watermarking capabilities. This extends Zscaler’s data protection across endpoints, email, SaaS and cloud.

Threat prevention: Advanced malware scanning, real-time phishing security, and credential protections, augmenting Zscaler’s inline inspection of encrypted traffic and built in threat protections.

Security insights: Additional telemetry and reporting across insider and external risks.

Google has collaborated with Zscaler to provide enterprises with a solution guide that enables organizations to configure their network security products alongside Chrome Enterprise Premium for deeper security and protections.

Browser-based device trust with Cisco Duo

As attacks targeting end-users become more sophisticated, a multi-layered defense that includes a strong device access policy is crucial. Signals including user identity, device security, and location can enable dynamic, risk-based access decisions that further protect corporate data. 

Enterprises can now use Duo Trusted Endpoints policy to enforce device trust using built-in Chrome Enterprise signals to deny access from unknown devices — without having to deploy additional agents and extensions. This integration allows organizations to:

Verify endpoint trust at login, and block unknown devices

Manage device access from a centralized Duo dashboard

Adjust granular policies for an organization of any size in a few clicks

Duo’s Trusted Endpoints feature lets organizations grant secure access to applications with policies that verify systems using signals from Chrome.

Data loss prevention with Trellix

Data loss remains a top concern for enterprises, and the browser is a critical point for stopping data leaks. Trellix DLP for Chrome Enterprise is now available as an integration to customers managing Chrome from the cloud. With the Trellix DLP integration, organizations can prevent data leaks in Chrome by:

Monitoring and blocking file uploads with sensitive content
Tracking and preventing sensitive content from being copied and pasted to websites
Controlling print activity in Chrome browser and on local workstations

 

When sensitive information is detected in Chrome, the user is immediately notified with a pop-up.

Current Trellix DLP and Cisco Duo customers can implement these integrations by enrolling browsers into Chrome Enterprise Core and setting up a one-time configuration, at no additional cost. Learn more about the Trellix DLP integration here and Cisco Duo integration here
