The popularity of Gsuite is not hidden from anyone. Thanks to its flexible and affordable subscription plan, unmatched service, and powerful collaboration tools that give the much-needed functionality to your organization.
Basically, G-Suite contains:
With all these powerful platforms in a single suite effectively supports your business. Another distinctive feature of G-suite is that, unlike other tools, you do not need to store any application on your system. This frees you from licensing and resource engagement/management of any kind. Everything is stored on the cloud. That makes it truly a wonderful platform for collaborative working from a different location. Yes! While working on Google Sheets, Google Drive, Google Forms, and Google Doc, you can easily share them with your team members; no matter where they are located. And all team members can work together simultaneously without any barrier as it saves everything automatically.
This is a great tool no doubt; but sometimes, such flexibility and openness on a cloud platform many times proves to be catastrophic in the absence of any secure protection. If your cloud infrastructure gets into the trap of hackers and their shrewd attacks, things can turn disastrous. So, how are you going to chalk out a future plan to be extra sure of protection from any such attacks or security breach into your cloud world? The answer lies in this innovative product from CloudCodes i.e. gControl. More than 300 global customers are using gControl to secure their Gsuite. Let’s check out gControl.
gControl brings to you various features like Browser Restriction, IP restriction, Geo Fencing, Device Restriction, AD integration, Self Password, Password Policy and Multifactor Authentication.
Each of these powerful security features work well to add protection shield to cloud based G-suite.
Let’s see what each of them can do for you.
Apart from that, you can fix the number of wrong attempts, after which, the account gets locked automatically. gControl also sends out automatic mails for any suspicious login attempts. When you implement such a strong password policy, chances are high that some users will forget to recall their passwords. And the IT team would be busy in resetting their passwords. That’s not a good idea at all! To cover the same, gControl features a kind of self-servicing through its Self Password feature. Using this feature, users can reset their passwords on their own. For that, it uses OTP and questionnaire method. The admin can select his questions or select from the standard questions available.
Well, many of you have used this OTP based method; this is also known as two factor authentication. Here, apart from the normal user name and password entry, you have to feed the OTP (which is a one-time password). gControl goes a step forward with its Multifactor Authentication feature. It adds another security barrier that employs biometric input. For that, you need to feed your fingerprints through your Smartphones. Nowadays, all the latest Smartphones are coming with fingerprint sensors. This is going to make your system hack-proof.
Yes! Even if the hackers have your password and username, they can’t do anything as none can steal your biometric.
