Google today announced the availability of Verified Access for Chrome OS devices. The company has used Verified Access internally for years to enhance security of Chrome devices, and it’s now making the feature available for enterprises to leverage themselves.

Verified Access ensures a network service (VPN gateway, server, a certificate authority, or a Wi-Fi access point) can get a hardware-backed cryptographic guarantee of the identity (device and user) that’s trying to access it. Many businesses have policies and requirements that allow network and data access only to enterprise-managed and verified devices. Instead of relying primarily on heuristic client… Continue reading

After Google launched the first version of its Angular web application framework in 2010, it quickly became one of the hottest web technologies. Since then, the web has changed, though, and when Google announced Angular 2 in 2014, it created quite a stir in the web development community because this new version wasn’t just an update, but instead a complete rewrite that wasn’t compatible with the older version. Today, after numerous preview and beta releases, the company is officially launching the final release version of Angular 2.0.

Angular 1 first solved the problem of how… Continue reading

An anonymous reader shares a Bloomberg report:Google is buying software development toolmaker Apigee for $625 million, the latest move by the search giant to bulk up its cloud-based offerings for businesses. Alphabet Inc.’s Google has agreed to pay $17.40 a share in cash, San Jose, California-based Apigee said in a statement Thursday. That’s a 6.5 percent premium to Apigee’s closing price Wednesday. The companies expect the deal to be completed by the end of the year. Apigee sells a platform that aids companies in managing their APIs, which are programming tools that help developers build software that talks to each other and shares information without revealing the underlying code. APIs have become an integral part of cloud software development, allowing one application to pull data and use services from multiple other programs. "The addition of Apigee’s API solutions to Google cloud will accelerate our customers’ move to supporting their businesses with high quality digital interactions" Diane Greene, senior vice president of Google’s cloud business, said in a blog post, referring to application program interface products.

An anonymous reader writes: First Google created a centralized place to search the web, and now Google has a centralized spot to search your Android phone. The company just announced a new feature for the Google App called In Apps. As its name implies, In Apps lets you search for content inside your Android apps, such as a specific song, contact, or note in Google Keep. To start, the new feature will only work with a select number of apps, including Gmail, Spotify, and YouTube. Google also has plans to add Evernote, Facebook Messenger, Glide, Google Keep, LinkedIn, and Todoist in the coming months. All app searches happen on your device itself, not Google’s servers, which means you don’t need an Internet connection to use the feature. It’s not clear how often the app will index your content or how much of a hit it will take on your battery or device performance.
