Enhancing Google Workspace with the Endpoint Education Upgrade

In our recent Webinar, Understanding the New Education Endpoint Upgrade in Google Workspace, we explored the features and benefits of this upgrade, discussing how it can seamlessly integrate into a district’s existing Google Workspace for Education environment. 

What is the Endpoint Education Upgrade? 

The Endpoint Education Upgrade is Google’s solution for managing mobile devices within educational institutions. It provides a streamlined, centralized approach to managing student and staff devices, including iOS, Android, and Windows platforms. This upgrade is designed to simplify device management, enhance security, and support educational collaboration. 

Key Features and Benefits 

  • Streamlined Account and Device Management: Easily create, manage, and secure accounts and devices from a single platform. The upgrade includes zero-touch enrollment and remote actions to simplify device setup and maintenance. 

  • Robust Security Controls: Protect your school community with advanced access controls, data loss prevention (DLP) rules, and suspicious activity alerts. Enhanced security features include iOS data protection, mobile device certificates, and context-aware access. 

  • Centralized Management: Manage all devices, including Android and iOS, directly from the Google Admin console, eliminating the need for multiple third-party tools. 

  • Cost-Effective Licensing: Flexible licensing options include user-based licenses covering up to 15 devices per user or device-based licenses at $5 per device per year, making it affordable for various school budgets. 

  • Integration with Google Workspace: The Endpoint Education Upgrade works seamlessly within Google Workspace, allowing for comprehensive management of both devices and educational tools, enhancing productivity and collaboration. 

Real-World Application 

Consider a school managing 5000 students with a mix of Chromebooks and iPads. The Endpoint Education Upgrade offers a cost-effective solution at $5 per device per year, significantly lower than upgrading to a full Google Workspace for Education Plus license. This focused approach meets their device management needs without unnecessary expenses. 

The Endpoint Education Upgrade from Google Workspace is a powerful tool for schools looking to enhance device management and security. Whether you're managing a diverse fleet of devices or seeking to improve security measures, this upgrade offers a flexible, cost-effective solution tailored to educational environments.
