Locking Down G Suite
Google updated G Suite Tuesday with tools, integration and capabilities intended to give users of the popular cloud-based office productivity suite more secure options for protecting their enterprise data.
G Suite, formerly known as Google Apps, was the pioneering product in its category, offering Docs, Sheets, Gmail, Drive and more for businesses. Over the years, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company has built into the platform a number of security features for safeguarding data and managing who accesses devices and systems.
The latest features enable greater control over authenticating users, integrating with other products and analyzing log data.
The new G Suite Enterprise Edition, which includes the security updates, "is designed to provide the peace of mind our enterprise customers demand and deserve," blogged Reena Nadkarni, a product manager for G Suite.
