Available to all Google Apps for Business and Google Apps for Education customers, the functionality includes remote tracking and locking support via the My Devices dashboard.

It's now possible to locating a lost Android 2.2+ handset on a map, ring the device, and reset its PIN or password remotely. There's also a new "Encrypt Data on Device" feature, which will now include requiring encrypted storage on Android 3.0 tablets.

Finally, there's a new Google Apps Lookup feature which promises to make locating enterprise business details more straightforward. More information on the changes here.
