JumpCloud now supports Browser Patch Management for Chrome. This feature allows admins to control a number of settings for the Chrome Web Browser. Similar to OS Patch, the JumpCloud Admin is given access to 4 default policies; Zero Day, Early Adoption, General Adoption, and Late Adoption. These policies are device agnostic, meaning they can be applied to devices running any supported OS, and do not need to be configured for specific OS types like OS Patch or other JumpCloud Policies. To access this feature in the JumpCloud admin portal browse to Policy Management > Patch Management > Browser, as seen in screenshot;
There are 3 configuration options available for our default policies; Automatic Update Settings, Sign-in Settings, and Chrome Browser Cloud Management Settings.
The focus of this page is to explore how to control user access to Browser Extensions that are permitted by an organization, JumpCloud Password Manager Chrome Extension for example.
To begin, we need to set up Chrome Browser Management, and generate an Enrollment Token. The Enrollment Token will then be added to your JumpCloud Browser Patch Policies, and will be distributed to any managed devices which are bound to these policies.
Testing Your Configuration
To show this off, we can switch over to a device which has been enrolled in the Browser Patch Policy.
Behold the power of a Managed Chrome Browser!
Please note that the above is just one example of how JumpCloud admins can harness the power of JumpCloud's Browser Patch Management and Google Chrome Enterprise Management. If you would like to learn more please reference the articles linked at the top of this post, or reach out to us!
