Win in the cloud with
ChromeOS devices

Built-in and proactive security

  • ChromeOS devices have built-in security features like data encryption, sandboxing, and Google-designed Titan C chip. Other key security features include:
    • Google Safe Browsing alerting users from navigating to malicious sites.
    • Executables don’t run on ChromeOS, eliminating the need for antivirus software.
    • IT controls prevent lost or stolen devices and regularly update security in the background.

Fast deployment and easy management

  • ChromeOS devices deploy up to 63% faster than other operating systems with no imaging required because devices automatically download users’ apps, settings, and bookmarks stored in a cloud profile. The cloud-based Google Admin console allows IT to configure policies, control updates, and install or manage apps from anywhere.

A smart and eco-friendly investment

  • ChromeOS is designed to minimize costs and energy consumption over time. By making the switch, businesses can save on reduced deployment, upgrade, and training costs. ChromeOS devices are built with sustainable and recyclable materials.

    • You’re looking to extend the life of your existing devices by transforming them with a modern OS
    • You have specialized hardware for unique use cases like kiosks, digital signage, and customer self-service

ChromeOS Jump Start

With Jumpstart, Pythian’s team of Google-certified ChromeOS engineers will not only help validate each of your use cases but will also assist with integrating ChromeOS into your current desktop infrastructure.


Pilot/POC Planning

With Jump Start, Pythian’s team of Google-certified ChromeOS engineers will not only help validate each of your use cases, but will also assist with integrating ChromeOS into your current desktop infrastructure.

  • Identify success criteria and project objectives

Pilot/POC configuration and testing

Here are a few of the common items we cover with customers in this phase.

Introduce a powerful Identity solution

Pythian will assist with mapping Google Identity accounts directly to Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or AD and, if appropriate, Pythian’s ChromeOS engineers will assist with the integration of an SSO solution into your ChromeOS environment. 

Integrate your network and network certificates

If you utilize user, server, and/or client certificates allowing users to connect securely to 802.1x wireless, VPN, secure servers, or applications, Pythian can assist with the integration of ChromeOS and your Certificate Authorities, Root CA, or Intermediate CA. 

Ensure consistency with policy configuration

Pythian’s ChromeOS engineers will assist with the policy configuration of each use case to ensure correct user experience and best practises for security, integration, software updates, and more. 

Get trained on admin change management

ChromeOS is easy to manage in an enterprise environment, but still may be a new process for your teams. Our extensive ChromeOS admin training ensures your teams stay on top.
