Key Features

  •  Provides fast, scalable, and reliable content scanning
  • Protects against viruses, spyware, and other unwanted content in a single scan
  • Easily integrates proprietary and patented URL filtering scanners and industry-leading antivirus technologies

Dedicated virus scanning for Web traffic is recommended for the following reasons:

  • Scanning Web traffic lets you catch and block threats at the gateway, rather than multiple times at each desktop. Users can potentially disable desktop protection, which can leave your network vulnerable to attack.
  •  Because many people now use Web-based email, email-born viruses that would otherwise be caught by antivirus scanning at the SMTP gateway can slip through to infect the network.
  • The industry trend has been to Web-enable many application environments to include the use of technologies like ActiveX, JavaScript, and Java applets to  enhance the user experience. Many new threats are associated with these Web technologies. Malicious mobile code viruses, such as Nimda and Code Red, have entered networks as executables (for example, ActiveX, JavaScript, or Visual Basic Scripts) that appear to be part of safe Web content.
  • Once a threat has been cached, malicious code can potentially be passed to other users on the network, which can compromise additional computers and data on the network.
  • Malicious code can result in lost, stolen, or corrupted files, which can result in costly downtime to the enterprise.

Domain management of Google Drive Apps

Last year, we launched a new and improved Google Apps Marketplace experience, allowing admins to be able to find, manage and deploy third-party applications directly from the Google Apps Admin Console.

Earlier this year, we launched the ability for admins to allow their users to install applications that integrate with Google Drive. If this setting was disabled, however, admins were not able to install Marketplace apps that integrate with Drive.

With today’s launch, Marketplace applications deployed by admins will be able to integrate with Google Drive for users who are provided with the app, even if this Admin Console setting is disabled. In essence, admins can now whitelist the Drive applications that their users can install.

Rapid release and Scheduled release

Identity verification to keep your account safe

In the coming weeks we’re introducing a feature to keep your account safe from hijackers, even if they have your username and password. Now when we detect a suspicious login, users will be prompted to verify their identity by entering their phone number. Users who have not set up their phone number will see a place to do so in the coming weeks. Note that users can skip entering their phone number but may be asked to add their phone number again at a later date. Google will use that phone number to verify their identity upon the next suspicious login. Once a user verifies their identity the alert is dismissed.

This feature only impacts web logins for users who do not have 2-step verification enabled and are not using SSO to login. This feature will be slowly rolling out to Rapid and Scheduled release domains in the coming weeks.
