Google has this week announced new security measures and protection for users, data, and apps in the cloud by brining its Advanced Protection Program to enterprise customers. The new implementation will help safeguard the personal Google Accounts of anyone at risk of targeted online attacks and is now available for G Suite, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Cloud Identity customers.
“Enterprise admins can allow their users most at risk of targeted attacks to enroll into the program. Examples of users who would benefit from the protections of the Advanced Protection Program include IT administrators, business executives, and employees in security-sensitive verticals such as finance and government. With Advanced Protection Program for the enterprise, we’ll enforce a specific set of policies for the users you identify, including:
– Enforcing the use of FIDO security keys, like Titan Security Keys, or compatible hardware from other vendors, to secure your account against phishing and account takeovers.
– Automatically blocking access to third-party apps that your company has not explicitly marked as trusted.
– Enabling enhanced scanning of incoming email for phishing attempts, viruses, and attachments for malicious content.
To learn more about the new enhanced security available for high risk employees and Titan Security Keys that are now available in Japan, Canada, France and the UK, jump over to the official Google Cloud blog.
