Secure Collaboration

  • Seamless, secure access for non-Gmail recipients, without extra verification steps
  • Persistent protection for attachments, even after download

Control and Visibility

  • Automatic protection and control via DLP rules and policy enforcement
  • Document watermarking
  • Granular access controls (e.g. allow forward, disable download)
