Stormshield launches the product Stormshield Data Security for Google Workspace
Published on: 13 10 2021
Stormshield announces that it has developed the solution Stormshield Data Security (SDS) for Google Workspace in partnership with Google, to allow all companies using Google Workspace to encrypt all types of information (content, communication…), while maintaining the native user experience.
Full control of company data
Through this partnership, Stormshield is a trusted third party for user data protection in Google Workspace – which includes Google Drive, Sheets, Docs, Slides and Meet.
In order to increase the level of data privacy, Stormshield, a Google partner, offers an independent encryption solution, integrated into the “Client-side encryption” feature developed by Google, while maintaining the native user experience of Google Workspace.
Client-side encryption that enhances privacy and security
SDS for Google Workspace allows the use of independent keys to encrypt data, on the client side, before it is sent to the Google servers. Companies thus retain full control over the confidentiality of their data, which is indecipherable to Google's servers.
SDS for Google Workspace offers its users cloud-based or on-premise management of encryption keys, as well as connection to an identity management service used to access these keys.
Beyond this reappropriation of the encryption key to protect their documents and data, companies also ensure their regulatory and sector compliance, guaranteeing peace of mind and confidence. SDS for Google Workspace can help with regulations such as ITAR, EAR, CJIS, IRS 1075 and HIPAA standards and GDPR regulations.
Data confidentiality and confidence in the technologies responsible for ensuring their security are essential pillars for clients to be able to work worry-free from anywhere at any time. Offered in cloud or on-premise mode, SDS for Google Workspace is integrated into Stormshield's global SDS offer and is intended for companies wishing to add another layer of confidentiality to user dataJocelyn Krystlik, SDS Business Unit Manager at Stormshield
