‘We are adding these features to your Google Workspace security toolkit to help prevent abuse and malicious behavior, and to help admins with powerful tools that help them manage security for their organization,’ says Karthik Lakshminarayanan, director of product management for Google Workspace, formerly known as G Suite before today’s rebranding.
Google Cloud’s rebranding of G Suite as Google Workspace, announced today, comes with new security and privacy updates to help prevent malicious behavior and protect organizations’ data while using its productivity and collaboration tools.
The new security features for Workspace, which includes Gmail and the Google Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms and Sites tools, are designed to facilitate safe communication and give systems administrators more visibility and control, according to Karthik Lakshminarayanan, Google Workspace’s director of product management.
“Our security features help you create flexible workspaces that scale, no matter what device or browser you are using,” Lakshminarayanan said in a blog post today. “At the same time, we want to make sure security doesn’t get in the way of you accomplishing your goals, but rather helps you easily protect the data that‘s so critical to your organization.
