Google Workspace Enhances Data Protection with AI-Powered Security Tools

The availability of CSE will initially cover Google Calendar, Gmail, and Meet. Further down the line, Google Docs will also incorporate CSE for comments, with ongoing trials to support Microsoft Excel files. Additionally, users will have the ability to choose the geographical location where their stored data is processed, along with the option to store copies of their Workspace data in a location of their choice.

Google had first announced client-side encryption for Gmail and Google Calendar in 2021, during the Google Cloud Next event. The feature was gradually introduced to general users earlier this year and is now being extended to corporate clients as part of Google’s ongoing commitment to enhancing data security and privacy within its suite of enterprise tools.
