Client-Side Encryption Up For Grabs In Gmail And Google Calendar

Right after achieving a successful inclusion in Drive, Sheets. Meet, and also Docs, Google says its CSE (Client-Side Encryption) for Workspace clients is now up for grabs to all Gmail and Calendar users.

The initiative is designed to target firms that store data that is not only sensitive but regulated. Moreover, CSE allows firms to both control and organize encryption keys and identity management services. This would allow for complete access to its keys.

Therefore, now, all data that arrives at the company’s servers would be managed through encryption first before touching Google first. Moreover, it can’t be deciphered by the company or any other party.

It’s great news for users as they can now send and get emails with different internal colleagues and outside parties through this security library design. In the same way, there is encryption taking place on the client side of things and it would entail encryption moving on to the next level so only the user has complete control over this encryption and access to data.

Gmail users will need to search for lock icons toward the end of a field that has the word ‘To’ mentioned. This is where users can find ‘additional encryption’ and right after that, we’ll see the compose window change into the hue blue.

In the same way, there would be a shield icon located across the Google Calendar that makes new events in a way that adds further encryption to attachments, video conferencing on Google Meet, and also a description.

As of this moment in time, the encryption for the client side is on offer to all users having Google Workspace. Similarly, it’s for those using Education Plus, Education Standard, and even Enterprise Plus.
