TEMPE, Ariz., Nov. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT), a leading worldwide technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions, is pleased to announce that it will provide Google Chromebooks with web-based management—a full, cloud-based computing solution to its clients in the education and healthcare sectors.

The Chromebook management console makes it easy to deploy, scale and centrally manage a fleet of Chromebooks. With just a few clicks on the management console, IT administrators can apply policies, applications and settings to different sets of users.

Chrome devices are optimized for the web's vast educational resources. Educators transform rich content into lessons, inspire collaboration and encourage students to create and share their own content with the world. Chrome devices deliver it all without lengthy startup times or training. They're a simple, scalable and affordable way to put technology into the hands of more students and teachers.

Educational institutions may want to pre-install or block applications, extensions or URLs for different grade levels of students and unfetter access for teachers. Through the management console, IT can manage user access and control network access, making it easy for users to get up and running, while ensuring they are protected by Web filters and firewalls.

"There's a tremendous opportunity for Chromebooks in today's education environment," Insight President and CEO Ken Lamneck stated. "Adding the Google Chromebook management suite into our portfolio gives our clients a great opportunity to provide their employees or students with portable, secure and affordable devices that also provide a full suite of applications that enable learning."
