Google Drive: SMB’s Best Friend

Google Drive for Work will also make it easier for employees to work with their Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files while on the go. Google has integrated its Quickoffice app with its Docs, Sheets and Slides programs, so employees can open and edit those documents in their native format directly on Android devices and Chrome browsers. In the future, the feature will be available on iOS devices.

Google Drive for Work is also beefing up its security. All files that are uploaded to Google Drive will be encrypted from each device to Google, both when in transit between Google data centers and while being stored on Google servers.

In addition, Drive for Work offers enterprise-grade security and compliance — including a SSAE 16 / ISAE 3402 Type II, SOC 2-audit, ISO 27001 certification and adherence to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles — and can support industry-specific requirements, like the HIPAA standards used in health care.

For administrators, Google Drive for Work offers more control. The new audit view lets administrators see activity, like when users are moving, deleting or sharing a file within or outside the company.

Businesses with compliance requirements can benefit from Drive for Work’s Google Apps Vault, which is designed for search and discovery for compliance needs. It has been expanded to cover all content stored in Drive — including Docs, Sheets and Slides — as well as any other file type. (source)
