Google has made it possible for users to use a client-side encryption function in the Workspace. However, you must ensure that you store the encryption keys in a proper and secure manner. Our Trident HSM helps you manage those keys in a highly secure way, allowing you to ensure that your encrypted data is accessible when needed with minimal hassle.
New feature for stronger security
In a world where data privacy is an increasingly important topic, Google has launched a new Google Workspace Client-side encryption function in order to help its clients enhance the security of their information. In addition to using the latest cryptographic standards to encrypt all data of the customers, Google now offers customers control over encryption keys and the identity services they use to access the keys. Users can continue to take advantage of Google’s web-based collaboration, access content on any device, and share encrypted files externally even, just like before, but they have less to worry about data security and even the service provider is unable to decrypt their data. Because of these capabilities, customers can strengthen the protection of their Google Workspace data.
This is an important leap forward and a useful option for anyone who wants to keep their sensitive data from Google. You can continue to use Google’s cloud services (which are accessible from anywhere from your mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer and scale automatically, according to your needs), while maintaining your authority over your sensitive data by retaining control of your encryption key.
