A quarter of a million American soldiers will be used Collaboration Tool Google workspace After entering into a partnership with the tech giant.
Made Google Cloud Advertising Last week after giving the service Impact level 4 license by the Department of Defense in July, which imposed penalties for its use of non-confidential, controlled information, such as those related to defense and intelligence.
The partnership comes from behind the creation of the company’s new division, Google Public Sector, which is responsible for providing its cloud-based services to local and federal public organizations in the US, in order to streamline their operations.
Google workspace in the public sector
Because of the unique challenges of military action, Hybrid work Collaboration is common. Google Public Sector cites the ease of use of their service as a primary reason for its suitability for use in the military.
Google is also partnering with cloud infrastructure company SADA, which specializes in building enterprises with Google Cloud, to help ease the transition of military personnel.
It appears that the ever-increasing threat of cybercrime in the military context has not deterred the US military from deciding to adopt such a massive cloud computing initiative. This trust may come from Google Workspace no confidence Policy, which is currently considered the gold standard in cloud security.
In simple terms, any user, regardless of their location, needs to be authenticated before they are granted access.
Common methods of enforcing mistrust include two-factor authentication (2FA), which requires the user to have another device, usually a smartphone, with which to verify their identity and grant access to the respective service on their primary devices.
The US Army deal is just another example of how Google’s cloud offerings are attracting the attention of public sectors around the world.
In 2020, the UK government signed a deal With Google Cloud to bring cloud computing to public sector services such as the National Health Service (NHS). While in 2022 New York State announce It will partner with Google Public Sector to bring cloud computing to the air quality monitoring initiative.
Cloud computing has its benefits in a world that has continued to shift to hybrid work. However, it remains to be seen if Google’s no-trust policies can continue to protect ordinary people’s data amid increasing dependence on the cloud.
