Data security remains the single biggest concern for enterprises considering a move to the cloud. Companies want the cost savings and collaboration afforded by platforms like Google for Work, but they often require more enhanced security and control than what the platform provides by default.
That’s why Maven Wave is excited to introduce our newest partner, Virtru, a company that offers easy-to-use, client-side encryption and persistent data protection for Gmail and Google Drive.
Virtru allows Gmail, Drive, and mobile users to protect emails and files with the flip of a switch. You can use Virtru to simplify compliance for current and future regulations like HIPAA, CJIS, and ITAR, to protect sensitive legal, HR, or finance information, and to secure intellectual property.
Additionally, Virtru allows enterprises to manage their own encryption keys – maintaining exclusive control over who can access what content and for how long. Users and administrators can revoke, expire, and track or disable forwarding for any encrypted email or file. For policy-based protections, you can also configure DLP rules centrally to detect and automatically protect information sent by users on your domain. And because Virtru encrypts on the client side, only the sender and recipient (not even Google or Virtru) can access the unencrypted content.
In order for companies to adopt encryption, it must be easy-to-use. By integrating directly within the Google Apps interface, Virtru enables military-grade encryption without disrupting standard workflows.
