Google Apps security is a very important component of Google Apps management. Here are some of our top tips for making sure that your Google Apps domain is secure.

Google Drive Security – The thought of storing sensitive documents in the cloud can be a daunting one, especially if you are responsible for securing your organization’s data. Compared to a more traditional on-premises solution, Google Drive represents a paradigm shift in both where files reside and how they are accessed.

Google Docs Security – The efficient collaboration between coworkers and colleagues is made easy through the use of Google Docs. However, if sensitive information is inadvertently shared in an inappropriate manner, this can lead to undesirable situations. Therefore, in order to reduce those potential situations, sharing policies should be properly enforced.

Change Google Docs Permissions In Bulk – Managing a domain often times requires administrators to carry out functions and settings on multiple fields of interest all at once. When these functions are carried out across docs relating to multiple users, groups, organizational units and more, bulk editing makes them take place more quickly and efficiently.

How to Enable Google Drive For Your Domain – Administrators who are interested in enabling Google Drive on their domain should first approach the task by changing a few settings within the Google Apps control panel. Follow our step by step tutorial in order to enjoy the convenience of Google Drive with universally accessible documents!

Manage User Storage Quotas in Google Drive – Google Drive provides users with 5GB of storage space by default. However, files such as Google Docs, as well as files that are uploaded and converted, do not count towards this usage quota, only external files that are not converted (such as Word and Excel files) count towards your storage quota.

How to Transfer Ownership in Google Docs – Google Drive diversifies its Google Docs users into three types: owner, editor, and viewer. Though many users are able to edit and view a single document, there can only be one owner. Sharing policies within the different Google Docs can be altered at any time in order to add or remove collaborators, but changing the owner is not such an intuitive process. With BetterCloud, transferring doc ownership can be done with just a few clicks.

CloudLock Alternative – If you’re reviewing third-party tools to improve your Google Apps security, you owe it to yourself and your organization to explore all the options out there. See what a few former CloudLock customers have to say about what they learned.
