Google Drive Encryption, Recommended by Google

Ensure privacy and prevent data leaks with end-to-end, layered protection for any file type.

Persistent Protection, Wherever Your Drive Files Go

End-to-End Drive Encryption

Encrypt files before they ever reach Google’s servers.

Corporate Privacy

Preserve the confidentiality of Drive files. Google and other third parties can never access your sensitive company data.

Regulatory Compliance

Meet requirements for the most stringent regulations, including CJIS and EAR.

Customer-Hosted Encryption Keys

Get complete control of the encryption keys that secure your Drive files with Virtru Customer Key Server (CKS).

Files are encrypted during upload to ensure privacy and compliance.

Powerful Access Controls

Control any file by expiring access, disabling sharing, and instantly revoking access.

Document Watermarking

Add watermarks to documents to prevent data exfiltration activity.

Policy Enforcement

Set and manage policies that automatically enforce encryption by Group, OU, user, Team Drive, or subfolder.

Controlled External Collaboration

Keep control, even when sharing beyond Google. Enable secure access for external collaborators without losing control via risky open share links.

“Content collaboration introduces new opportunities for inappropriate behavior that don’t exist with traditional computing. Open shares can be an especially pernicious risk.”
