Stay secure with advanced anti-phishing and malware capabilities

Google recently introduced several features for G Suite to help keep your data secure. As described in my earlier post, this includes advanced protections against phishing and malware attempts. Here is how you can rolled out to your organisation. Go to the Admin Console under Apps > G Suite > Gmail > Safety. Each can be enabled, disabled or customised. In the Attachments section:

  • Protect against encrypted attachments from untrusted senders

  • Protect against attachments with scripts from untrusted sender

Gmail Attachments

In the Links and External Images section:

  • Identify links behind shortened URLs

  • Scan linked images

  • Show warning prompt for any click on links to untrusted domains

In the Spoofing and Authentication section:

  • Protect against domain spoofing based on similar domain names

  • Protect against spoofing of employee names

  • Protect against inbound emails spoofing your domain

  • Protect against any unauthenticated emails

Gmail Spoofing and authentication

The majority of these settings will be disabled for existing customers, depending on your domain configuration it may cause false positives.

To maximize security, the following settings will be automatically enabled for existing customers on April 4th, 2018:

  • Identify links behind shortened URLs

  • Scan linked images
