English county council saves millions switching to G Suite and Chromebooks

A day in the life of an employee at Northumberland County Council in northern England involves everything from running schools, repairing roads or literally putting out fires. It’s work that never stops and that stretches across a rural area the size of Greater London with 330,000 citizens and three million sheep.

Two years ago, the Northumberland IT team started to notice strain in their service infrastructure which connects 380 locations across the region, and recent budget cuts made that system feel increasingly unworkable.

"We had a very big legacy setup that was costing us a fortune in licensing and devices,” says Neil Arnold, Chief Information Officer at Northumberland County Council. “We decided to bring people together in a central hub to make teams more agile."

Creating G Suite champions

After evaluation, Arnold and his team chose G Suite for its functionality and flexibility. The team relied on Netpremacy, a Google Cloud partner, to train 300 staff members to educate colleagues on how to use G Suite. Within months, 5,500 corporate users and 11,500 schools users had been set up with G Suite accounts. “Without the support of Netpremacy, we wouldn't have been able to implement as rapidly as we did,” says Arnold. “They recognised the cultural challenges. There was skepticism at first, but users really took the tools to heart when they could see the benefits.”

From different locations across the region, staff began working collaboratively on Docs and Sheets and inviting others to join. The team saved money by switching to Chromebooks and Arnold and his colleagues started using Hangouts to join meetings to stay synced on daily work.

Even firefighters, who were reluctant to try out Hangouts at first, started using it regularly. “Firefighters now use Hangouts at the scene of fires to communicate with central command, monitor the fire, and decide how many vehicles they need,” says Arnold. “The chief fire officer doesn't have to get in his car and drive out to the scene to help — he can do it all from wherever he is.”

Saving big by going cloud-first

Arnold expects switching to Chromebooks will help Northumberland County Council save close to £2.5 million on licensing and hardware, without sacrificing data security since Chromebooks have multiple protection layers.

The next step for Arnold and his team is to bring G Suite to the classroom. “We've got a lot of schools using Google Classroom successfully,” he says, “and we want to roll G Suite out to more schools. It’ll be a big efficiency for them, because many have small file servers on site, that they manage themselves or pay a third-party to manage. Drive will help them decommission that.”

Meanwhile, outdated exchange and file servers are being closed down across the council as data is seamlessly transferred to Google Cloud. The new central office for the county is set to open in 2019, and Arnold does not plan to have a datacenter at the new building: “That footprint’s going to reduce over the next three years to virtually nothing.” 

“I've been working in IT for over 30 years and this has been one of the most successful and satisfying projects I've ever been involved in,” says Arnold. “We’ve achieved more than we expected and using G Suite has been a tremendous catalyst for change.”

Samsung Chromebook Pro brings security and versatility to businesses

With an increase in customers adopting Chrome OS in their organization, the availability of Samsung's Chromebook Pro in the U.S. market this week adds a new enterprise grade device. This premium Chromebook combines the simplicity and security of Chrome OS with flexibility and performance to be productive wherever work happens—in the office, in the field or on the go.

Samsung Chromebook Pro with pen

Versatile as a laptop or a tablet

With an Intel Core m3 processor, the performance of the Samsung Chromebook Pro enhances productivity allowing employees to run multiple applications at the same time across G Suite, Chrome, the Google Play store (in beta) or virtualization solutions from our recent announcements with VMware and Citrix.

The 360-degree folding touchscreen converts the Chromebook to a tablet experience. The built-in pen is designed for a natural drawing and writing experience enabling employees to remain productive no matter where they are. They can take notes with Google Keep or Squid, and sign digital documents with apps like DocuSign.

You can also work offline with the Samsung Chromebook Pro to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations, view PDFs and other locally stored files, and even reply to emails, which are then sent automatically when the device connects to Wi-Fi again.

Security and easy device management at the core

Like all Chromebooks, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is built with security in mind, from the time employees bootup and until they shut down.

That means the Chromebook includes a tamper-proof Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and also Verified Boot feature, which helps ensure the device is running uncompromised software. Chrome OS also runs each browser tab and application in a sandboxed state to avoid malicious modification of the system software or other applications. User data is encrypted as well, helping to protect both your employee’s information as well as your company’s data. And automatic updates every six weeks help maintain the security of Chrome OS.

IT admins can easily deploy and manage this new Chromebook from a centralized management console with more than 200 device policies. That means providing employees with the apps and services they need to get work done, and even pre-configuring network connections for them.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro is available now in the U.S. for $549, with additional launch regions expected later. Learn more about the Samsung Chromebook Pro here and see how it can safely enable your business in a variety of uses or buy now through the Shop Chrome store.

How automatic Chrome OS updates bolster security with ease and simplicity

IT admins have a challenging role, charged with securing corporate assets while providing employees with tools that are fast, intuitive and accessible from anywhere. Chrome OS is designed and built with security at its core, from Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chips on all hardware, sandboxing of software, and Chrome browser security, endpoints across your organization are secure from boot to shutdown.

The multiple security layers of Chrome OS work together as part of a cohesive security approach, including automatic updates to provide protection on a recurring basis without disrupting your work. Today we’re sharing a closer look at how automatic Chrome OS software updates maintain ongoing security of the platform and devices.

Unlike most other computing platforms, Chrome OS devices always have two images of the system software on separate partitions. This approach serves two purposes. First, there’s no disruption to your work because you can keep working while the backup version is updated. Second, the next time the Chrome OS device boots, which typically takes just 6 to 10 seconds, it runs from the recently updated partition. Essentially, Chrome OS swaps between the two images. That means there’s no waiting for the updates to be applied: You can be up and running in just seconds with new software.

This not only keeps you working, but it can also reduce IT admin support costs. Instead of admins and tech support resources trying to schedule or manually push out software updates to a large number of machines, quick automatic updates happen without disruption.

Major version updates for Chrome OS are available every six weeks on average, though minor improvements are are sometimes available sooner. And important security patches can be pushed in 24 to 48 hours if required. These updates happen automatically in the background and are applied seamlessly to the backup partition. Additionally, all software updates are provided and pushed directly from Google, so there’s no third-party intermediary involved, further helping to speed the delivery of Chrome OS updates.

Chrome OS automatic updates are one of several security layers that protect your devices and data. The updates work hand in hand with the Chrome OS Verified Boot feature to ensure that the system software hasn’t been compromised; if Verified Boot detects software tampering, it forces a reboot into the backup partition of the system software.

Chrome browser in enterprise: new admin bundle and Citrix support

Thanks to its speed, security and simplicity, Chrome has become the most popular browser for using the web. But it’s not just for personal use. With more than 200 browser management policies, industry-leading security and regularly scheduled updates, Chrome is also built for enterprises.

Adoption of Chrome browser in enterprise has doubled in the last two years and we’re committed to making it even easier for IT admins to deploy and manage Chrome within their organization. Say hello to the new Chrome enterprise bundle.  

The new bundle includes multiple tools in a single download that IT admins need for a simple, managed deployment. Today we are also announcing official Citrix support with features for employees that work with legacy applications.

Citrix XenApp, Terminal Services & Windows Server on Chrome

Citrix use is nearly ubiquitous in Fortune 500 companies, and the web browser is one of the most virtualized applications. So we’re adding official support for running Citrix XenApp as well as Windows Server with Terminal services on Chrome. In Chrome 58, which we began rolling out this month, we include support for GPU acceleration within Citrix environments, roaming profiles and Windows Server auto-detection for easy configuration for IT administrators. Visit the Google Chrome team May 23-25 in Booth #404 at Citrix Synergy Orlando to learn more.

"With official Citrix support for Chrome, we've invested heavily in joint product development, engineering, sales and marketing. We are seeing the returns with continued customer success and large-scale adoption, particularly in industries such as retail and healthcare." Vipin Borkar, Director of Product Management, Citrix

Deploying and using Chrome just got easier

While the existing, standalone Chrome MSI installation package is still available for companies to download, the new Chrome enterprise bundle provides a single package for IT admins that contains the latest version of the Chrome MSI, the Chrome Legacy Browser Support (LBS) extension as well as administrative policy templates.

It’s common for enterprises to need access to legacy web applications that require older versions of IE due to the use of outdated plugins such as Silverlight and ActiveX. These requirements no longer prevent you from deploying Chrome to your organization thanks to the included Legacy Browser support (LBS) extension in the Chrome enterprise bundle.

This allows IT administrators to configure their employees’ desktops so that when someone clicks a link in Chrome that needs a legacy browser to work, the URL will seamlessly open in a legacy browser. When they're done with the legacy app and type in other URLs that are not specified by the admin, LBS will switch the user back to Chrome to ensure they remain secure.

Everything you need to securely deploy and manage Chrome

Also included in the bundle are the current administrative policy templates that allow admins to configure the available Chrome policies, which will be enforced in the enterprise environment. If Chrome is already deployed but you’re not actively managing Chrome, the policy templates are also available for download separately. For more information on how to configure Chrome policies, check out our Chrome Deployment Guide.

As more enterprise applications move to the web, it’s more critical than ever to have a path for support. IT admins can email or call Google 24 hours a day. This service is included for G Suite customers and is available on a for-fee basis for non-G Suite customers.

With more than 10,000 Chrome users, Carrie Gernant of the Wyoming Department of Enterprise Technology Services notes: “We value the ability to sync from device to device and bring all of our settings and bookmarks with us. As part of IT it makes it easy to do my job, everything is there for me whenever and wherever I need it. The security Chrome provides gives us peace of mind. The auto-updates, phishing protection and built-in malware are all working together to keep our data safe."

Our new Chrome enterprise bundle provides organizations with all of the management tools to make employees productive and can be downloaded here today. We plan to continue to add additional enterprise tools as they become available.
