Glass Class – Securing G Suite
Hi, welcome to Glass Class. Today we're going to be talking about securing G Suite. G Suite is Google's productivity suite that contains a number of different applications that are facing a lot of really rapid adoption in enterprises around the world.
There are a number of applications inside of G Suite that you have to make sure you can secure. You have things like Google Docs, Google Sheets, of course, you have Gmail, as well as Calendar, and then naturally you have Google Drive. Each of these houses a different type of information. Things like docs, well that's where your team is going to be making different types of content. Sheets, maybe you have sensitive field level data inside of spreadsheets that your employees are going to be working on, whether that's customer data, employee data, some other kinds of proprietary information. Gmail and calendar, of course, necessary day-to-day kinds of tools for any organization that's using G Suite.
Finally, you have Google drive, which can contain a lot of sensitive data, all kinds of different file types that your employees are going to be accessing on a regular basis. To make sure that you are completely securing G Suite you need to make sure that, first, you have visibility and control over data at rest inside of the application. The ability to see sensitive data patterns, and then enforce security policies by using tools like DLP or data loss prevention. Second, you need real-time security through inline proxies so that you can scan traffic in real-time, see things you need to see, and enforce security policies on the fly.
The good news is, any multi-mode CASB has the exact sets of tools that you need in order to get that visibility over data at rest, as well as visibility over data in transit, and enforce the security policies that you need to make sure that your data is safe. So check out Bitglass, we're a multi-mode CASB. Thanks for watching Glass Class.
