Lenovo announced its latest offering to support remote workers, a zero-touch enrollment on company's Chrome OS devices. Lenovo said that zero-touch enrollment is built with security in mind as hardware-backed attestation helps secure device identity to prevent spoofing attacks.

As organizations help employees adapt to new “work-from-anywhere” models, many IT teams are learning just how prepared (or unprepared) they are for the transition. With entire workforces now offsite, IT must confront getting the right devices to employees while securing endpoints, surfacing new cloud-based tools, managing overburdened help desks and more.

In the past, IT administrators had to manually enroll each Chrome OS device into their domain, requiring manual IT efforts. With zero-touch enrollment, the device drop-ships pre-registered and ready for use by the end user with all the organization’s security policies, applications and profiles. This eliminates the need for manual device enrollment. This offering went live on the ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook in December and will expand to other Lenovo Chrome OS devices throughout 2021.
