Case Study for IT Industry
Based in Hong Kong, a leading IT company that provides Primary Source Verification solutions, background screening and immigration compliance services worldwide, to both public and private sector, had deployed G Suite and was very satisfied with the same. Shortly after this transition, it’s IT team learnt that G Suite’s advantage of free and easy data access to its users may pose as a threat to the company’s data security, hence having a close vigilance and control over data access was vital for the company.
G Suite’s rollout throughout the company led to a faster turnaround time, better team collaboration and efficient process flow. However, the IT team soon started facing issues related to data governance; like the inability to gauge unrestricted user access from unrecognized machines, untrusted devices, unmanaged IPs, geographies, browsers, etc. It became impossible for the enterprise to determine whether this access was authorized or unauthorized, such inadequacy of the security controls was raising concerns of data leakage, data theft and data loss and required immediate action for ensuring none of these negative events occurred.
This organisation was also looking for a way to restrict their users from accessing their personal gMail in order to ensure no corporate data is transferred for personal use. In addition, this enterprise also wanted to align their company’s theme, culture and practices, as well as improve user experience, and promote employer branding among all its users.
