Blacklist Google Apps 3rd Party Applications To Strengthen Enterprise Cloud Security
Employees often use Google Apps User Id to register for 3rd party applications like Pinterest, Tripdo, Podio, etc. On the surface these applications looks harmless but a closer looks reveals that these applications asks for permission to access personal data, at times even the calendar and drive data of the user.
Access to calendar and drive data? The sounds of it must make you feel vulnerable and unsafe.
Though Google Apps provide appropriate administrative control for administrator to take appropriate action and revoke the permissions provided by the user but data is already shared with 3rd party app hence data leakage incident has occurred outside the domain.
SSO1 (gControl)s deals with this problem by providing a preventive mechanism, but prohibiting users from signing into any G Suite 3rd Party Apps with the Google Apps Id, unless the particular application is white listed by the Google app administrator in SSO1 (gControl). This will ensure no data is compromised outside domain.
