Client-side encryption for Gmail for workspace

Google recently revealed that it is extending customer access to client-side encryption in Gmail online. Customers of Google Workspace Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Education Standard can enroll for the beta program through January 20th, 2023. It’s still not available for google private accounts. However, it is already available for already available for users of Google Drive, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Google Meet, and Google Calendar (beta).

“Using client-side encryption in Gmail ensures sensitive data in the email body and attachments are indecipherable to Google servers. Customers retain control over encryption keys and the identity service to access those keys.” Said the company.

The adjustment is a positive one for users who appreciate the security of their personal data because it comes at a time when worries about internet privacy and data security are at an all-time high.

“Google Workspace already uses the latest cryptographic standards to encrypt all data at rest and in transit between our facilities.”

“Client-side encryption helps strengthen the confidentiality of your data while helping to address a broad range of data sovereignty and compliance needs.”

Customers that are eligible for Workspace can apply for the beta after completing a few account preparation requirements.
