Protecting Your Data In Google Docs
The rate at which businesses adopt cloud services is impressive. Google Apps, Google’s cloud email, calendar & collaboration solution for businesses, powers over 3 million businesses and is expanding at a rate of 3000 new businesses a month. Yet many companies are still hesitant to move to the cloud, and those that do may not fully utilize cloud services to their full extent. When asked, companies have repeatedly stated that their number one obstacle to fully leverage cloud solutions is the security of their data.
Using Google Apps, a Software-as-a-Service solution, means that your data (documents) will be created and used in the cloud. Therefore you must trust Google with the security and privacy of your data, and as with any cloud solution, this means giving up control. If you are a business owner, CEO or any IT executive faced with protecting your company’s data for regulatory, privacy, and operational reasons this loss of control is a concern.
Our free whitepaper, “Protecting Your Data In Google Docs: Compliance In The Cloud” highlights key security aspects of your data in Google Apps, the consequences of experiencing loss of control, and steps you can take to adapt your data governance practices to protect your data in the cloud and increase the ROI in Google Apps as you enable a safer and more protected means of collaboration.
