G Suite Admins get greater control

Google has enhanced its G Suite security toolset with a new feature called OAuth Apps Whitelisting.

Nail needs a hammer

Organisations with G Suite can often benefit by integrating third-party apps. Of course, opening a system to unverified software presents a potential security risk.

If left to individual user discretion, malicious apps can sometimes trick users into sharing data that is meant to be kept secure.

‘Papers please’

OAuth Apps Whitelisting lets admins protect systems by positioning themselves as the front line of defence. It gives admins greater control of if, when and how third-party apps integrate with their systems.

Now, G Suite admins can decide which apps are allowed on the system and on what terms. In this way, OAuth Apps Whitelisting lets organisations more safely expand the base functionality of their productivity applications.

Policy control

The OAuth Apps Whitelisting interface gives admins clear insights into which third-party apps are accessing G Suite data. On that basis, they can create a list of approved apps that individuals can use, and prevent unapproved apps from installing at all.

Admins wanting a step-by-step guide to implementing OAuth Apps Whitelisting can check out Google’s official help page on the subject.

When it comes to productivity, is it necessary to compromise between functionality and security?
