Google enhanced desktop security for Windows with a new beta update. This will allow you to manage and secure Windows 10 devices through the Admin console, just as you do for Android, iOS, Chrome, and Jamboard devices today. It will also enable SSO (Single Sign-On) so users can easily access G Suite and other SSO-enabled applications on Windows 10 devices. End users do not need to take any actions until admins activate the beta.

Additionally, this makes work easier for users by reducing the hurdles. Users need to log in just once to their Windows 10 device using their G Suite login credentials, and they’ll be able to access Google apps and any other enterprise cloud applications with Single-Sign-On enabled without further logins.
Admins can deploy policies and device configuration updates from the cloud, removing any network or other restraints for installing these updates on user devices.
Policies and updates that can be applied by admins include BitLocker, Windows Update, and desktop customization. Additionally, admins can block or wipe devices if needed from the device page in the Admin console.
