Google has expanded client-side encryption support to additional products (Gmail and Calendar) in its Workspace suite. The security feature was already available on Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Meet.
This support expansion will facilitate compliance procedures for private and public sector organizations, considering that certain types of communication mandate high levels of encryption.
These range from keeping sensitive R&D data private to scenarios where confidentiality is key to the success of a mission-critical operation.
Starting today, users can send and receive emails or create meeting events with internal colleagues and external parties, knowing that their sensitive data (including inline images and attachments) has been encrypted before it reaches Google servers.Google Statement
Gmail and Calendar on Workspace already supports data encryption at rest and in transit by using secure-by-design cryptographic libraries.
Client-side encryption, including for Gmail and Calendar, is available to customers worldwide who have Workspace Enterprise Plus, Education Standard, and Education Plus subscriptions.
