How to ensure your business information is secure while employees and contractors travel.

Security in the Cloud

Google’s Google Workspace provides a neat way around the security risk posed when placing company devices into the hold or being forced to provide password access by US Border Agents.

By placing all company documents, emails and communications into Google’s Google Workspace, any devices and accounts provided by your company can be remotely managed to remove all access during device transit or employee travel.

A simple telephone call to the IT department can restore all access once an employee or contractor is safely through border checks or reunited with their devices from the hold luggage.

The new “travel mode” settings for security can even be pre-programmed by admins to make the process as swift as possible.

Unfortunately employees and contractors will no longer be able to work on-the-go, but companies can rest assured that critical business intelligence will remain secure during travel.
