Manage the Chrome Enterprise Data Loss Prevention connectors

As an admin, you can use the Google Admin console to get Chrome to connect directly with your partners Data Loss Prevention (DLP) agents. This integration allows you to check for sensitive data, provides additional stability for the browser as well as the DLP partners agent, and removes the need to deploy and manage the DLP partner’s Chrome extension.

Before you begin: Devices must be enrolled in Chrome Browser Cloud Management. For details, see Set up Chrome Browser Cloud Management.
