Better Security For Gmail Business Users
Google has just launched a number of new and updated security features for Gmail business users.
The newly launched features include an update of the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) app. This feature that was originally designed to keep any sensitive data out of emails now has an enhancement that allows attachments to be protected in a similar way.
Another update in this latest launch is a feature that enables the scanning of emails for information in several new countries. Google says that this could improve the coverage of HIPAA data, which relates to the necessity for data centres to comply with HITECH standards to ensure protection when electronically transmitting any protected health information (ePHI).
More Selective Handling
The latest Gmail for business updates could also make it easier for businesses to handle their emails differently based upon how many rules they violate. This means that multiple violations of the criteria you set could result in instant rejection of an email, whereas one violation could mean that the email is simply quarantined so it can be reviewed.
What This Means For Businesses
These updates give businesses a greater level of control when it comes to email security and better tailoring to the individual needs of a business.
