Google has announced a new version of Chrome OS designed for businesses, which will feature tools such as theft prevention and integration with Microsoft Active Directory, as well as the ability for companies to remotely manage printers, browser extensions, software updates and networks. Called Chrome Enterprise, the system will cost $50 a year per device.

According to Google, Chrome Enterprise will be another attractive feature of Chromebooks for businesses that will also appreciate the devices’ ability to run Android apps from Google’s Play Store, including many business apps. While the Chromebook’s previously limited features might have kept businesses away, Chrome Enterprise might lure them to the modestly priced devices in the near future.
