Chromebook

Put Your Head in the Cloud

With Chromebooks, Google invented a new type of laptop and took it to a higher altitude—into the cloud, in fact. Chromebooks are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents living not on a hard drive, but in the cloud. Unlike other laptops that run Windows or macOS, Chromebooks run Chrome OS.

Now made by several manufacturers, Chromebooks are affordable, lightweight, and popular, especially in the education market. Families and businesses use them, too.

Managing them, however, is an entirely different beast. Several systems excel at tracking and managing Mac and Windows laptops. Chromebooks, on the other hand, are connected to Google’s infrastructure. Once you own a Chromebook, it relays information to a Google account, where Google sets rules for variables such as security and user access.

As an IT person, wouldn’t you like to know what these rules and policies are and be able to manage and change them as necessary? Now you can, with the integration between Oomnitza and Chromebooks.
