The new Chromebook Enterprise laptops from Dell and Google announced on Monday will have a built-in security chip. The laptop line was created for companies that are consciously involved in cyber security.
The notebooks with Chrome OS will be delivered in two models. The Latitude 5400 is a traditional 14-inch laptop, and the Latitude 5300 is a two-in-one 13-inch tablet that can also be used as a tablet when taking down the screen.
According to Cnet, the laptops are in fact Dell products that are complemented by Google’s technology. Google’s Titan chip for security is built-in, which is also integrated in Google’s Pixel phones. The Titan chip verifies a device’s OS and firmware every time it is started. This makes it more difficult for cybercriminals to make changes to software.
Device management: plenty of possibilities
Google will combine the chip with an improved version of Chrome Admin to manage Chrome OS devices. Companies can also use Dell software for this, so this is the preference of the company in question.
The new version of VMware’s Workspace One, which was recently announced, is also compatible with the laptops. New features such as password management, remote access and integration with Dell SafeBIOS are therefore available on the new Chromebooks.
SiliconAngle reports that the Katitude 5400 and 5300 will be sold for 699 and 819 dollars respectively. However, companies can order models with better components for a higher price. The laptops can be ordered with processors up to the eighth generation of i7 processors, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to 1 TB of flash storage.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
