The Challenge

As the adoption of Google spread through the organization and more documents and sites were created, the security team felt the need for a solution that would provide the Church with visibility, control, and security for all Google Drive and Sites.

Adhering to regulations like HIPAA, SOX, and PCI does not stop with the migration to G Suite. Data that is created in the cloud is also subject to the same regulations as data created and stored in on-premise file servers.

Cloudlock enables us to achieve compliance for the data we store in Google Apps. With Cloudlock we can safely enjoy the collaboration features of Google Apps while still complying with HIPAA, SOX, and PCI.

The Solution

Both the IT and Helpdesk teams use Cisco Cloudlock to:

  • Gain access to a consolidated dashboard that provides an overview of users, documents, sites, and exposure classification within the entire domain
  • Search or drill down to view all documents and sites in the domain, see their sharing
    settings, and view who can access what
  • Fully control permissions and access rights to enforce access controls
  • Get a complete audit trail of all activities and changes made


Cisco Cloudlock enables the IT and Helpdesk teams to proactively monitor Google Docs and Sites, stay on-top of potential issues, and provide the operational tools they need to effectively respond to user calls.
