Since the beginning, the aim with G Suite has been to help companies transform the way they work with their suite of cloud-based collaboration and productivity apps.


Google recently announced major updates to help the more than 5 million paying businesses that use G Suite work safer, smarter and more efficiently.

Keep sensitive data secure with new Gmail security features


Keeping your data secure is their top priority, which is why last month, Google introduced new phishing protections to help address Business Email Compromise (BEC) threats or when someone impersonates an executive to get sensitive information.


With these new protections, Gmail has helped block 99.9 percent of BEC attempts by warning users or automatically moving messages to spam for them.

Google introduced a new approach to information protection: Gmail confidential mode. With confidential mode, it’s possible to protect sensitive content in your emails by creating expiration dates or revoking previously sent messages.

Confidential mode will begin to roll out to consumer Gmail users and a limited number of G Suite customers in the coming weeks (broader rollout following).


Google also redesigned the security warnings within Gmail so that they are simpler
