Better employee experiences start with ChromeOS

Put employees first with an OS that offers a modern user experience, fast boot up times, reduced downtime and seamless onboarding experiences.

  • ChromeOS provides end users with modern experiences that allow them to be productive, anywhere.
  • ChromeOS gives your employees access to versatile devices that boot up in under 6 seconds, have secure, cloud-based backup systems and offer 8 plus hours of battery life, so they can work worry-free, from any location.

Simple and safe access to your familiar OS and browser apps from anywhere

VDI on ChromeOS offers a seamless, cloud-based experience that ensures your employees can easily access applications across all environments, from web-based SaaS apps to legacy apps and desktops.

  • Access legacy Windows apps through virtualization solutions including Citrix Workspace, VMware Horizon, Nutanix Frame, and Cameyo.
  • Leverage progressive web apps, Android apps, Chrome extensions and more on ChromeOS devices.

Your virtualization solution is only as secure as your endpoints

  • Keep devices secure with Google’s built-in Titan-C security chip and virus protection.
  • Protect your fleet with encrypted storage, blocked executables, and a read-only OS.
  • Ensure your firmware and OS have not been tampered with or corrupted with Verified boot.

  • Remotely disable lost or stolen devices.
  • Rollout security and feature updates to devices gradually, or set them to automatically install.

We chose Citrix Workspace to deliver the VDI infrastructure, ChromeOS to deliver our collaborative personal applications, and Acer to deliver Acer Chromebooks for end-user devices. The combination of those three has been fantastic.
