G Suite Security

You own all of your data

G Suite customers own their data, not Google. Google does not scan your information and there is no advertising in G Suite. It’s also easy to move your data if you stop using the services.

Trusted by over 5 million businesses

The cloud is used by millions of organisations all over the world every day. Now over 60% of the Fortune 500 have gone Google and there are 60 million users of Google for Education across the globe.

100% of your emails are encrypted

Your core G Suite data is HTTPS encrypted whilst moving within Google or over the Internet. G Suite is also ISO 27001 certified and audited regularly to ensure compliance with regulation.

Systems built on the basis of top quality security

Google is an organisation that was built in the cloud, meaning that from day 1, security has been a top priority. The company spends millions of dollars each year innovating in order to continually improve security. Google also has an impressive record in protecting users data from both internal and external threats as they employ tight controls and authentication measures over access points.

G Suite Security Features

2-Step Verification

Add a second layer of security to your account by requiring a second form of verification to login (eg. a mobile phone code or security key signature).

Remote Wipe Devices

If an Android or iOS device is lost or stolen you can delete the G Suite data in real-time. There’s also an option to delete all the data from Android devices.

Data Loss Prevention

Scan your organisations email traffic for specific content such as credit card details and execute actions when this content is identified (eg. reject or modify message).

Google has exceptional security

There has never been an incident where data has been stolen directly from Google since G Suite was launched in 2006. In fact Google offer rewards for hackers to expose vulnerabilities in their systems so they are constantly improving their security. The company also employs over 550 experts and invests millions every year to ensure that their systems are fully secure.

Where is your data stored?

Google has multiple data centres around the world – UK, Europe and beyond. These data centres are highly secure with very strict control on who is permitted to be on-site so the risk of a leak is minimised. Your data is split up and replicated in several locations to reduce the impact of a computer failure and extraction of sensitive information more difficult.

Google Vault

This app is included in G Suite Business and offers a whole range of features to help meet your organisation’s compliance needs. You can search through your entire organisations emails, instant messages and files from the moment the app is switched on. Furthermore, you can set organisation-wide retention rules for how long deleted emails are stored in user’s mailboxes and before being deleted by Google.
