Google Enterprise Security Program offers enhanced Malware and Phishing protection


    Over recent years, Google Chrome has emerged as a dominant force in the realm of web browsing, capturing the attention of a vast online audience. Current estimates suggest that approximately 65% of the world’s internet users, equating to nearly 3 billion individuals, rely on Chrome as their browser of choice. However, this widespread usage has inevitably attracted the attention of cyber-criminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities for nefarious purposes such as gathering intelligence and distributing malware.

    In response to these threats, Alphabet Inc.’s subsidiary, Google, has been vigilant in addressing detected vulnerabilities through regular fixes and updates. In a proactive move to bolster security measures, the company has introduced Chrome Enterprise Premium, a subscription service available for a monthly fee of $6 per user. This premium offering boasts advanced features including enhanced malware and phishing protection, deep scanning capabilities for detecting various threats, and robust data loss prevention mechanisms.

    Distinguishing between consumer and enterprise levels of Chrome subscriptions reveals a comprehensive package tailored for heightened security and streamlined management, notably through endpoint security solutions.

    In a bid to align with evolving privacy regulations and concerns, Google has opted to postpone the implementation of third-party cookies in Chrome, allowing adequate time for regulatory reviews and ensuring compliance with emerging standards.

    Furthermore, an important development in the Chrome ecosystem is the announcement that version 120 will not be compatible with devices running Android Nougat (Android 7.0 and 7.1). Consequently, users on Nougat, including those utilizing Nexus devices, will need to remain on version 119, potentially compromising browser stability and security for this segment of users.
