How secure are Google Apps?

One of the main concerns I had when joining the four million other businesses that currently use Google Apps was “How secure will my data be?”  With Google, I am assured that all of my most sensitive data is protected completely and there are a number of safety measures in place to make sure that not only is it safe from being lost but that it is also safe from being accessed by unauthorised people.

Google have a dedicated safety team in place that includes some of the world’s foremost experts when it comes to network, application and information security, so I know that they are focused on keeping my information secure.  This team monitors the system 24 hours a day and there is not one moment when their efforts are not under intense scrutiny.

In addition to the checks that Google has in place with its staff, they also provide a two-step verification process, which means that only the users that I authorise can gain access.  This extra layer of security can bring peace of mind to all employees as well.

All systems on the Google platforms have successfully undergone and completed a ISAE 3402 Type II audit and, as if all this wasn’t enough, Google even guarantee that their services will be available 99.9% of the time so that I never have to worry about not being able to access my own data.
