Google is highlighting how Chromebooks can work in 'zero trust' corporate environments with its new Chrome Enterprise Connectors Framework. From a report: The new integration system is designed to make the Chrome browser and Chrome OS devices easier for IT departments to implement with existing security, endpoint, and authentication solutions as well as bother management solutions. Google Chrome OS exec John Solomon describes the new tools as a 'plug and play' solution that lets other companies helm Chrome OS management functions like remote-wiping a Chromebook using BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Management or flagging malware downloads with Splunk. These types of management functions previously worked through the Google Admin console. Managing and enrolling Chrome OS devices in the enterprise will still rely on Google tools like Google Admin and Chrome Browser Cloud Management.

It might even give IT a better handle on buggy Chrome OS updates and is currently available through the Trusted Tester program.
