Endpoint Management in Google Workspace

It’s always a challenge for the organization to keep an eye on each user especially in today’s world where the spams and threats are at the maximum. So it’s always best to limit the users from accessing unwanted information, unwanted sites, etc., so as to keep the data within your safe circle. No organization can keep an eye on every user so that they are safe from any security threat and no one will realize that they are facing a threat unless it becomes domain-wide. Google thought this through and thought why not automate this? Google introduces Endpoint management to monitor every user and to detect an incident even before it becomes an issue.


Any user is free to access emails from PCs, Mobiles any other devices, etc. So, the endpoint management works for all users despite the types of OS like Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux so that the user can access email from any device and no compromises are made on data security. Google also ensures that no additional applications other than Chrome are installed on the user’s system or mobile for this and that’s the beauty of Google applications always - implementing web apps rather than native system apps


Features of Endpoint Management in Google Workspace


Google Workspace allows an organization to host applications only for its employees. With Endpoint Management, access to those apps can be allowed only via a VPN so that the access is made by only the allowed users and through allowed devices. It also ensures that content from the apps in the work profile is not shareable via any other apps that the organization has not permitted to.


It makes sure that each user is given access to those apps which they need and not more. Providing the least privileges is always the best practice to keep the data secure. Access to an application can be denied or enabled from the admin console


A 2-Step Verification(2SV) and login challenges can be enabled for users with a windows management policy. An organization can force every user with a 2SV to make sure the person who logs in is really the person he/she claims to be. This can be either with an Authenticator device/App or a One-time Password.


These all help until the user moves to another organization.

What about the data with them then?


Google comes with a solution to this situation as well. The data is retrieved/deleted from the user’s device once they are leaving the organization and only one G Suite account is allowed per device. Only the work profile data is wiped from the device and not the personal data of the user.

With Google Workspace being introduced, Endpoints Management is open for all but with limited features. For the customers with Business Starter and Business Standard plans, the fundamental endpoint management options are available and Advanced options are available to the Business Plus customers. Enterprise customers have the most secure and Enterprise options available in endpoint management like Windows Management policies.
