Google Apps includes dozens of critical security features specifically designed to keep your data safe, secure and in your control. Your data belongs to you, and Apps tools enable you to control it, including who you share it with and how you share it. Our data center network provides exceptional security and guarantees* reliable access to your data, 24x7x365.25 (that’s right: no rest, even on leap years).
While you work, all your critical data is automatically backed up on Google servers. So when accidents happen – if your computer crashes or gets stolen – you can be up and running again in seconds.
When you put your data in Google Apps, you still own it, and it says just that in our contracts. Apps’ powerful, easy-to-use tools help administrators manage things like users, documents and services, and keep track of usage and data via dashboards.
Our data centers are designed and built for our applications and don’t include unnecessary hardware or software. This reduces the number of potentially exploitable vulnerabilities. We guarantee 99.9% uptime* and build-in robust disaster recovery, so you don’t even have to worry about natural disasters.
Google Apps offers an extra layer of security with two factor authentication, which greatly reduces the risk of hackers stealing usernames and passwords. We also automatically encrypt browser sessions with SSL for Apps users without the need for VPNs or other costly, cumbersome infrastructure. This helps protect your data as it travels between your browser and our data centers.
“As a law firm handling highly confidential information for our clients, we take security extremely seriously... our best security option is Google Apps. Google has many security features that allow us to feel confident that our and our clients’ data is much safer than if we hosted it on premises.”
Law Firm, Google Apps User
