Speed, Simplicity, Security – Which one made them choose Chrome? Well, we are not sure of that bur the US State Department will be deploying Google Chrome on all its computers and making the switch to the browser of the day.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed this during aÂ Â Town Hall meeting for the State Department. They started this process onÂ February 14th. Looks like the Chrome team is thrilled! Here is what they posted on the Chrome blog.
For the same reasons you might choose Chrome for your home or work computer — speed, simplicity, security — businesses and organizations are choosing to give Chrome to their employees. Just over a year ago weÂ announcedÂ that Chrome would get a special set of tools for IT admins at organizations, giving them controls to easily set up, push out and manage the browser in a professional environment. Now guess what? The US Department of State made Chrome available to all employees, and just two weeks later, more than 58,000 of their employees have Chrome installed.
Chris Bronk, Senior Advisor, IRMâ€™s Office of eDiplomacy, U.S. Department of State wrote a guest post on Google Enterprises blog giving more information on thisÂ switch.
TheÂ State DepartmentÂ gave our employees around the world a special Valentineâ€™s Day gift as we made the Google Chrome browser available to all employees on February 14. This makes us the first U.S. cabinet department to make Chrome available department-wide.
WithÂ Chrome for Business, our Information Resources Management (IRM) team was able to deploy Chrome quickly and securely. After two weeks, it has been installed on over 58,000 PCs around the world or around 60% of our enterprise. The administrative capabilities of Chrome for Business will allow IRM to manage the browser going forward, making sure that all employees are on the same version and can take advantage of new features that are regularly made available in new Chrome releases.
Congratulations Chrome Team!!
