Data-Centric Google Drive Encryption and Persistent Control

Google Drive is where your teams get work done. Ensure they have the tools to easily protect information while they collaborate.

Granular, Persistent Access Controls

Set an access expiration date, disable re-sharing, and revoke file access at any time.
