Chrome OS is also working to support sustainability efforts by lowering carbon footprints. With its cloud-first platform and efficient power management capabilities, Google Chrome OS devices consume as much as 46% less energy than comparable competitor devices.3
Sustainable and secure devices
Acer Chrome OS enterprise devices are not only sustainable technology choices, but they also offer a number of safeguards for data and privacy. As the workforce has shifted to hybrid and remote locations, and society adopts more digitized platforms, cyberthreats and data security are other important environmental concerns to keep in mind.
Organizations that practice secure erasure on devices containing company information are able to reduce carbon emissions through reuse programs. For example, Blancco securely erased 54 million IT assets in 2021, preventing 150.4 millon pounds (68.2 million kilograms) of electronic equipment from going to a landfill.4
Another example of the connection between sustainability and security is Google Chrome OS’s cloud-profile capabilities that facilitate sharing between multiple users with per-user encryption, off-machine file storage, tab and user sandboxing, site isolation, and more, helping organizations remain efficient with fewer resources, and ultimately less waste.
Secure your enterprise.
Companies are facing high levels of threat as new digital tools and remote integrations expand the attack surface. Acer and Chrome OS deliver cloud-native security, strengthened endpoint security and simplified endpoint management to help safeguard users and data against ransomware, malware and phishing threats.
Google Chrome OS firmware updates every six weeks, far more often than other systems. Updates happen quickly and in the background, with no downtime or disruption for users. All Google Chrome OS devices receive the same updates, regardless of manufacturer. This process helps organizations maintain a security standard for their enterprisewide devices.
