Data-Centric Google Workspace Security for Cloud-Based Collaboration

Protection to Complement Google Workspace Client-side encryption

Virtru is a partner for Google Workspace Client-side encryption (coming soon to beta) with key management and offers encryption that travels with files wherever they are shared, ensuring your data stored within Google Workspace is confidential and remains private if you need to share via other workflows. Confidently store and share any sensitive data with advanced, secure data tracking.

End-to-End Email and File Encryption

Encrypt Gmail messages and attachments, as well as files stored in Google Drive—including Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, and other uploaded files. Virtru’s simple Chrome extension protects emails and files directly in Google Workspace, preventing access by Google and unauthorized parties, wherever data is shared.

Google Cloud Security

Files stored in Google Drive are encrypted upon upload. Users can also protect and maintain control of files downloaded from Google Drive and shared through other workflows.

Granular, Persistent Access Controls

Set expiration dates and disable forwarding or re-sharing. Revoke access at any time.

Industry-Leading Ease of Use

Easy, On-Demand Protection

Virtru users can apply encryption and access controls using existing workflows. Virtru is embedded directly in the native Google Workspace user experience with a simple Chrome extension.

Seamless, Secure Access

Virtru users and recipients can read and respond to encrypted emails directly from their inbox. External recipients without Virtru can easily and securely access protected email and shared files through the Secure Reader with their existing credentials or a one-time verification link – non-Google recipients don’t need to create a new account and password.

Persistent Visibility

Senders can easily view who has accessed or forwarded an email, throughout the full data lifecycle, and can always revoke access or adjust access controls.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Mitigate data sharing risks and help meet regulatory compliance with Virtru’s configurable DLP security rules that detect sensitive data. Create a safety net that protects against human error by automatically encrypting or alerting users before sending.

Security Awareness and Adoption

Virtru’s seamless, intuitive user experience helps boost security awareness and ensure user adoption, so you get the most out of your investment.
