If you are concerned about data security please carefully read our post about this subject.

Five key areas set GSuite apart from the competition, which is why research firm Radicati named GSuite the leader in cloud business email.

  • A cloud pioneer. Google is a trusted name and a leader in reliable cloud infrastructure.
  • Built for the cloud. GSuite was designed as an entirely cloud-based service from the ground up, so IT departments don’t need to spend time and money maintaining any desktop components—it works on any device.
  • A complete package. The suite includes file storage and sharing with Google Drive, real-time collaboration with Google Docs, video meetings with Hangouts, and professional email with Gmail—all for one price.
  • Consistency and comfort. GSuite users enjoy the same experience across different devices, operating systems, and browsers, and many people are already familiar with Google's interface from using the products at home.
  • Offline support. Gmail, Calendar, and Google Docs let users view, edit, and create content when they’re not on the Internet, syncing automatically when they reconnect. We provide for our clients who sign up for Google Apps for Work the following services at no additional charge: resetting passwords, rename, suspend or delete user accounts.

Google Apps for Medical Professionals

As of 2014, Google offers one of the only cloud-based collaboration environments compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Ensuring that patient or customer data is safe, secure, and always available is a top priority for Google. They have sought and received numerous security certifications including FISMA, ISO 27001, and SSAE 16. Under HIPAA, certain information about a person’s health or health care services is classified as Protected Health Information. Google Apps customers who are subject to HIPAA and wish to use GSuite with Protected Health Information requirements must sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Google.

Administrators for GSuite for Work, Education, and Government domains can request a BAA before using Google services with Protected Health Information. Google offers a BAA covering Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and Google Apps Vault services.

GSuite customers are responsible for determining whether they are subject to HIPAA requirements and whether they use or intend to use Google services in connection with Protected Health Information.

Google Apps Consulting for Nonprofits and Education

With proper documentation and approval from Google, nonprofit and educational organizations are often able to use GSuite at no charge. We can assist you in this process, with everything from initial signup and approval to migration your existing email, contacts, calendar, and documents to the cloud.

Google Drive

Google Drive lets you access all of your documents from any device, anywhere you have Internet access.

Google Drive seamlessly syncs files between your devices and the cloud. Need to open a file but don’t have the right software installed? View and edit more than 40 popular file formats with Drive, including videos, images, Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and PDFs.

30GB of storage per user, shared across Drive and Gmail, allows for lots of room for data. But if that’s not enough storage, unlimited plans are also available. You must have a GSuite account to purchase additional storage. We have an article on the three different storage plans available from Google for your information.

GSuite Vault

GSuit Vault, an add-on service, lets you retain, archive, search, and export your organization’s email for eDiscovery and compliance needs. Vault is entirely web-based, so there’s no need to install or maintain software. Vault is included with GSuite Unlimited, or you can purchase Vault licenses for an additional monthly fee per user.

GSuite Vault offers the following eDiscovery services:

  • Email and chat archiving—Set retention rules to control how long email messages and on-the-record chats will be retained before they are removed from user mailboxes and deleted from Google systems.
  • Legal holds—Place legal holds on users to indefinitely preserve all of their emails and on-the-record chats in order to meet legal or other retention obligations. You can place legal holds on all content in a user’s account, or target specific content based on dates and terms.
  • Drive file search—Search your domain’s Google Drive accounts by user account, organizational unit, date, or keyword. Search results include Google file types as well as non-Google file types such as PDF, DOCX, and JPG.
  • Email search—Search your domain’s email and on-the-record chats by user account, date, or keyword. Vault supports Boolean, Gmail-specific, and wildcard operator searches.
  • Export—Export specific email, on-the-record chats, and files from Drive to standard formats for additional processing and review.
  • Audit reports—Use Vault audit reports to learn about actions users have taken during a specified period of time.
  • Purchase Google Vault. Contact us. You will also need to purchase a GSuite account if you don't have one. The GSuite Unlimited includes Vault.
