Access & Authentication

2 Step Verification
2-Step Verification adds an additional layer of security to protect your business against cyber threats and reduces the risk of unauthorized access to your business data. Turning on and enforcing 2-Step Verification across your organization is the single most important action you can take to safeguard your business.

Context-Aware Access
Google Workspace makes it easy for users to access web applications and company data from any device, from anywhere. Google Workspace's built-in policies enable administrators to ensure sensitive data remains secure with controls that dictate which apps users can access based on their identity, location, device security status, and IP address.

Endpoint Management
Endpoint Management ensures that personal and company-owned devices are kept secure with continuous system monitoring and alerts of any suspicious activity. Administrators can easily manage devices with the ability to enforce endpoint policies, encrypt data, lock lost or stolen devices, and remotely wipe devices if necessary.

Asset Protection

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
DLP helps organizations protect their confidential data by allowing administrators to audit data flows and customize warning or blocking actions. This powerful tool enables users to create custom detectors tailored to their specific enterprise needs to manage sensitive information securely.

Sharing Permissions
Google Workspace's powerful sharing settings enable administrators to configure policies for sharing Google Drive files and folders with external users. These settings cover all items stored in Drive, including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and folders.

Information Rights Management (IRM)
To dictate the handling of organizational data in Google Workspace, administrators can implement internal policies to prevent the re-sharing, downloading, printing, or copying/changing of permissions for files in Google Drive.

Gmail Confidential Mode
Gmail users can use Confidential Mode to protect sensitive information in emails. With Confidential Mode, users can set an expiration date for messages, revoke access anytime, and require an SMS verification code for entry. This ensures that messages and attachments cannot be forwarded, copied, printed, or downloaded without the sender's permission.

Account Management

Google Vault
Google Vault is an information governance and analysis tool that allows organizations to retain, hold, search, and export users’ Google Workspace data. With Google Vault, organizations can easily access their data whenever needed to ensure compliance with industry regulations and quickly respond to litigation or investigations.

Session Length
Google Workspace allows administrators to control the length of user sessions for increased company-wide security. By setting shorter session lengths for Google services, such as Gmail on the web, administrators can help protect their organization from unauthorized access, especially for users who work remotely or from untrusted locations.

Audit & Investigation
Google Workspace's Audit and Investigation tool allows administrators to view records of device actions, such as when a user added their account to a device or if a device does not follow the organization's password policy. Furthermore, administrators can set alerts for specific activities, allowing them to respond to security threats quickly.

Email Spoofing Prevention
Spammers can sometimes forge the “From” address on an email message so that it appears to come from a reputable organization’s domain. To help prevent this email spoofing, Google Workspace administrators can create a DMARC record within their admin settings and implement an SPF record and DKIM keys on all outbound email communications.
