Top use cases for securing Google Workspace

01

Control access to Google Workspace applications and more

Using a powerful combination of API-enabled and inline security controls, detect sensitive content in Google Workspace or en route to or from any third-party cloud application or website. Manage access to Google Workspace regardless of where your users are located, what device they are using or how they do so (e.g. web browser, mobile app, sync client). Apply the appropriate access control policies based on your specific needs.

02

Detect and protect sensitive data

Identify and control access to sensitive data and content across Google Workspace applications. Establish policies to restrict data access and movement within and between Google Workspace applications like Drive and Gmail. Extend this control to third-party cloud storage applications like Box and Dropbox to ensure data is not lost between applications.

03

Stop insider threats like data exfiltration

Prevent the download of sensitive data from Google Workspace via business instances and then the upload via personal instances, which is one of today’s top data loss methods. For example, allow corporate Gmail accounts to access and download sensitive content but restrict the upload of this data via a personal, unmanaged Gmail account. Additionally, apply this control to unmanaged devices: allow unmanaged or personal device access to a specific cloud app for collaboration, however, do not allow downloading of sensitive data.

04

Detect and stop elusive threats and malware

As cloud-enabled threats are the norm with 63% of malware delivered from the cloud*, it’s essential to deploy cloud smart threat defenses. Additionally, with SaaS/webmail applications being the #1 phishing target*, it’s more imperative to boost your threat defenses for Google Workspace than ever before.

05

Maintain compliance in Google Workspace

Ensure your organization can adhere to strict regulations by enforcing security policies within Google Workspace that prevent actions that can push your organization out of compliance.

06

Google friendly and fast

Encounter no performance trade-offs when protecting critical Google Workspace data and traffic due to direct peering with Google in all data centers worldwide via Netskope NewEdge.

"7% of users intentionally uploaded sensitive data to personal instances of cloud applications. 14% of file uploads are images which may contain sensitive data."

– Netskope Threat Labs

Data exfiltration from managed to unmanaged cloud app instances, including email, is on the rise.

Our users simply love Google G Suite, but we wanted to make sure our sensitive data was protected and users didn’t have inappropriate access. Netskope had everything we needed.
