Security Principles

Why choose Google?

We’ve always been driven to solve big problems, and we tackle security with the same spirit. We provide advanced, transparent, user-centric security to help you keep your data safe online. Here’s how we do it:

Protection built into every step.

We control our entire technology stack. This span allows us to detect threats quickly, react effectively, and even anticipate incidents. Through data sharing, advanced encryption, routine key rotation, and machine-learned anomaly detection across our global operations, Google has exceptional insights and scaled protections in place to ensure your data remains secure. And when it comes to deploying software updates at scale, Google’s culture of rigorous code review, coupled with our company-wide continuous testing infrastructure, helps protect your data and optimizes for uptime whenever new software is deployed.

Your data, in your control.

Google only uses your data to provide the service you’ve purchased from us. We don’t use your data for advertising or any other business. We give you the tools you need to manage your company’s information at all times — like our Admin console or our reports, logs, and APIs — so you can always see how we handle your data. And our Transparency Reports clearly outline our policies on sharing data with government agencies.

Streamlined security management.

Google mitigates security threats so you don’t have to worry about critical, but time-consuming, tasks like system monitoring, patching, and upgrading. And our technology helps keep your users safe too. Google offers administrators extensive control over system configuration and application settings — all integrated in a single dashboard with easy-to-use security features including:

  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
  • Vault and e-Discovery
  • Security Keys
  • Information Rights Management (IRM)
  • Mobile Device Management (MDM)
  • Spam & Malware Detection
  • Identity Services (IDaaS)
  • Forward Secrecy
  • Two Factor Authentication
  • Anomalous Behavior Detection

The management and operational capabilities give us full control. We wouldn’t be able to reproduce this level of data protection with a competitor’s product.”
