Google Workspace: Top Security Use Cases

Google Workspace is a key SaaS app used throughout the organization. From email and productivity to calendar, video conferencing, messaging, and file sharing, Google Workspace is one of the most used applications within a company.
How Adaptive Shield Helps Secure Google Workspace
Google’s zero-trust approach enables users to work securely from anywhere, and offers built-in protection against phishing attacks, malware, ransomware, and supply chain attacks. However, those security features are ineffective if the settings are misconfigured.

Adaptive Shield ensures continuous data protection and privacy by reviewing configurations and alerting the security teams when misconfigurations put your content at risk.
