Google Boosts Internet Security with Chrome Enterprise and Okta Integration
Google diligently champions the Zero Trust security model, leveraging it extensively in the strategy for our proprietary as well as customer-facing products. Whether in the cloud, staying productive in the office, or while on the move, we entrust Chrome Enterprise with the safety of enterprise users and corporate data on the web.
In the previous year, we laid the groundwork for Chrome Enterprise Connectors Framework, establishing interfaces between Chrome Enterprise and top-tier cybersecurity solution providers. This framework accords organizations the ability to augment their native Chrome ecosystem security, thereby escalating their progress towards a secure enterprise browsing journey.
An Initiative Toward Context-Aware Access Control: Chrome Enterprise Integrates with Okta
Amid the growing trend of a dispersed workforce, access control is a fundamental component of an enterprise’s security strategy for averting unwarranted access, data breaches, and cyberattacks.
We are excited to announce that the Okta and Chrome Enterprise Device Trust integration is now accessible. This integration allows organizations to establish authentication policies that factor in device signals like browser version and OS firewall from the managed Chrome browsers on multiple platforms, such as Windows, macOS, and ChromeOS. This feature will amplify protection for enterprise resources.
The synergy between Chrome Enterprise and Okta brings countless benefits to organizations, including:
- Amplified security through a variety of device signals and device assurance guidelines, authorizing IT admins to block or reject application access.
- Robust access policies with minimal setup, supplementing those configured through Unified Endpoint Management.
- Compliance with internal device standards and security preconditions.
- Efficient application of Zero Trust principles while ensuring a superb user experience.
As we gear towards deploying this new integration, let’s hear from an expert in the field:
“Our security team aims to secure internal resources and apps while ensuring a user-friendly experience. The integration of Chrome Enterprise and Okta Device Trust marks an innovative solution that enhances security by introducing device context into our Okta authentication policies with minimal extra effort for IT teams” – Mark Laubender, Security Engineer and Tech Lead at Snap Inc.
Google is persistently committed to helping businesses operate more securely online. In partnership with third-party security providers, we continually deliver secure enterprise browsing solutions, aiding organizations in building unique, best-in-class technology stacks.
