Corporate Data Security
Google always commits to provide safe and secure service to its customers. However, google constantly released new features for corporate data protection and that’s also the reason that it is liked by thousands of users.
To support all G Suite and Cloud identity users’ application access was launched last year to control access to G Suite data from third-party apps.
However, all applications do not comply with the company’s security policy. That’s the reason why Google has improved its security and protection.
Data Access Control
At G Suite, there are thousands of Apps available such as APIs that also allow users to develop customized applications. However, they do not meet the criteria always. Google implemented the controls to manage third-party applications that access G Suite data.
With the latest updates by Google, now system administrators can prevent applications from accessing any corporate data. An application cannot access data from Google services if it is blocked. Moreover, if the user tries to authorize corporate data, you will get an authorization error message.
As a G Suite administrator, the important thing is that you can implement domain-wide delegation of authority if in any case, you want to grant third-party or internal applications access to your G Suite users’ data.
App developers and G Suite administrators can create a service account and can also authorize the service accounts to access its users’ G Suite data without individual consent. In addition, here is a list of a few apps granted domain-wide delegation:
- It has G Suite migration and sync tools (such as G Suite Migrate).
- It has internal applications that developers create for your G Suite organization.
For example, you can delegate access to an app that uses the Calendar API to add events to your users’ calendars such as Giffy is a classic example.
- Through this users activate apps without being prompted for consent, and user data that various apps can access.
