Auditing of devices is broken into two areas
- ChromeOS devices.
- Mobile Devices.
These two auditing areas provide a lot of control to super admins. Admins will have control over who can sync with G Suite cloud services via a mobile device. You can take actions such as blocking a certain mobile device if it’s not approved or verified. These actions can only be taken if Mobile Device Management has been enforced within your G Suite Admin Console.
Chrome OS Device Auditing
With ChromeOS Device auditing you can edit details of enrolled Chrome devices in bulk. You can locate and find a Chrome OS device very quickly and view its details like serial number and last user.
Chrome OS Device management (and hence auditing) requires an additional Chrome Management License from Google.
GAT also allows you to search the Chrome OS device by both ‘ID’ and ‘Status’ as well as all the other common GAT search criteria.
One important point to note is that the user or the Admin sets the value for ‘User’ when setting up the Chrome OS device. We strongly recommend you set it to the User’s email address, that way we can link it to the other ‘User’ audits.
When the “eye” icon is selected it shows ChromeOS device details.
Two types of information are displayed
- Hardware and OS
View the device details, including ‘MAC Address’.
Edit the device settings to the ‘User’ value to be the email address of a user on your domain, whom you want to be associated with that device.
Admin can also Deprovision, Disable and Re-Enable the selected ChromeOS device.
All reports can be exported to a spreadsheet.
All reports can be scheduled to run at a set period.
