As federal, state and local agencies consider what they may do in case a breach threatens their operations, continuous access to email, chat, and videoconferencing systems throughout a catastrophic situation is a top priority. Because Google has pioneered the zero-trust approach in security with its BeyondCorp implementation, and has both FedRAMP High and Department of Defense Impact Level 4 certifications, Google Workspace can offer federal agencies peace of mind.
From our partners:
“Federal and state and local agencies are aiming to increase security while maintaining trust and availability, a task that is unachievable without continuity.” says Aaron Walker, research manager for World Wide Government Trust and Resiliency Strategies at IDC. “Google Workspace will help agencies utilize zero trust principles to ensure availability of document, email, and collaboration tools as incidents, breaches, and attacks occur.”
Making it easy to deploy secure alternatives
Google Workspace allows access to communications and collaboration tools that organizations need during and after an incident to keep work going. If one communication system goes down during an emergency, Google Workspace can keep collaboration and communication running smoothly.
For provisioned users, Google Workspace can be operational immediately, allowing agency personnel to stay connected, access documents, and collaborate securely across Google’s email and collaboration platform to assist customers in time of need. Specifically, using Google Workspace, agency personnel can access their emails, documents or their current calendars from their primary providers—and access the agency’s Active Directory.
To help agencies implement this strategy and roll out Google Workspace, Google Public Sector is offering workshops for government agencies to help them determine the best strategies for resilient communications and collaboration.
