Google Workspace has been built from the ground up to mitigate the unique threats for cloud systems. Google’s standards for performance and reliability apply to businesses, schools and government institutions around the world.
The technology, scale, and agility of Google’s infrastructure bring unique security benefits to all its customers. Google’s vast network of data centers are built with custom-designed servers, that run Google’s own operating system for security and performance. Because Google controls its entire hardware stack, they are able to quickly respond to threats that may emerge.
Google employs dedicated security professionals to work on protecting your data, including some of the world’s foremost experts in computer security. Just like all teams at Google, this team is constantly innovating and making the future more secure, not just for Google’s billion users, but for business organizations as well.
Google has an outstanding track record of protecting user data. Google protects this data from outside intrusions as well as insider threats. In addition, we tightly restrict and monitor any internal access to user data. The small set of employees with access is subject to rigorous authentication measures, detailed logging, and activity scanning to detect inappropriate access via log analysis.
It is this unique combination of people, technology and agility that ensure your data is secure at Google. For more information, check out the Google Workspace Security Whitepaper.
