Endpoint management

The primary value of Google Workspace is the ability to connect to your work data from anywhere on any device. Users typically use a laptop or a mobile device to access their respective Google Workspace content, such as emails, files within Drive, and messages in Google Chat; connect to video calls in Google Meet; and access their checklists in Google Keep.

While Google Workspace lets users connect from anywhere, it also comes with the added responsibility of keeping the domain data secure. Google Workspace's endpoint management system solves this conundrum and helps keep an organization's data safe.

The endpoint management system covers the following:

  • Mobile devices
  • Chrome browsers
  • Windows 10 device endpoints
  • Google Meet hardware that's used in conference rooms
  • Jamboard devices that are used with whiteboards
  • Chromebook laptops
