Secure Your Email

    Google Workspace

    Overview

    Boost Google Workspace resilience with best-in-class email security, continuity and archiving

    As more and more businesses consolidate around fewer enterprise messaging platforms, the popularity of Google Workspace has surged — making it a much higher-value target for hackers. Meanwhile, research shows that 11% of the emails that get through Gmail’s basic security contain spam and malware. To achieve true cyber resilience with Google Workspace, businesses need the best-in-class independent email security, continuity and archiving they can only get with Mimecast. 

    Challenges

    Resolve the challenge of Google Workspace email security with greater security efficacy and independent, many-layered protection

    Focused cyberattacks 

    Google alone can’t provide perfect threat protection, especially as more and more cyber threat actors target its platform. Ransomware, business email compromise, spear phishing and other threats — many driven by brand impersonation — are constantly escalating the threat to your business. 

    Gmail outages

    Whether due to a cloud outage or cyberattack, Gmail and Workspace become unavailable from time to time. Business can grind to a halt when your key productivity and collaboration platform disappears.

    Compliant archive

    Archiving email in Gmail alone can lead to significant risk. Businesses need an independent, well-architected archive that enables data retention compliance and supports excellent search for e-discovery.

    FAQs

    Security for Google Workspace FAQs

    What security does Google Workspace include?

    Google Workspace/Gmail security varies depending on the configuration purchased. Basic protection includes only simple spam filtering, antivirus, etc. Even Google Workspace advanced security protection provides relatively few configuration options, especially for a large or growing business enterprise. By definition, Google Workspace cannot include the thing most security experts agree is necessary for any business’ security: layering of multiple security solutions from independent providers.

    How do I make Google Workspace more secure?

    Most security experts agree that the way to make any organization more secure, whether it’s a Google Workspace user or not, is by layering together multiple security solutions from various independent providers. Security solutions from a single provider mean that cyberattackers need only outsmart one supplier. Since different providers think differently, code differently, and take different approaches to many similar challenges, multiple providers invariably detect and mitigate more threats than any single solution.

    How do I protect Google Workspace email?

    Experts agree the best way to protect Google Workspace’s Gmail — or any email system — is with a best-in-breed secure email gateway (SEG) that monitors and filters email before it even enters Google Workspace. Any sizable business should protect its corporate network with multiple other cybersecurity systems, all of which should share threat intelligence data bidirectionally with the SEG. For example, Mimecast’s SEG, called Targeted Threat Protection, uses multiple detection technologies and more than 50 integrated detection engines that combine to produce best-in-class security and low time-to-protection against new threats. Mimecast also supports threat intelligence sharing through its library of open APIs and off-the-shelf third-party integrations that enable organizations to layer security based on best-of-breed technologies, from endpoint to email and web gateways, and from threat prevention and remediation to data loss prevention.
