Google’s services increase the number of opportunities that enterprises have to increase efficiency, and improve service and product delivery. Whether those services come in the form of cloud storage or as remotely delivered office applications, Google offers tools to make the world more connected so businesses and individuals can take full advantage of the internet to advance their initiatives.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) consists of a set of physical assets, such as computers and hard disk drives, and virtual resources, such as virtual machines (VMs), that are contained in Google's data centers around the globe. Each data center location is in a region. Regions are available in Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. This distribution of resources provides several benefits, including redundancy in case of failure and reduced latency by locating resources closer to clients.
The integration between Google Key Management Services and Thales HSM solutions provides 100% confidence and key control, as opposed to storing keying material in the GCP. As a result, access to internal and highly sensitive data associated with GCP services such as Google Cloud Engine are completely under the customer’s control while still being transparent to end users.
Google Drive is an Internet-based service that allows users to store, create, and share files (documents, pictures, videos, and presentations etc.) in Google’s cloud from any computer, tablet, or phone. Data traveling to Google Drive can be protected through encryption using SSL. SafeNet integrates Google Drive with the KeySecure server for key management services to secure the encryption keys used in SSL operations.
Google Cloud Storage offers world-wide data storage and retrieval at any time using a simple programming interface that allows developers to take advantage of a fast and reliable networking infrastructure. SafeNet’s KeySecure server integrates with Google Cloud Storage to manage the keys used for its encryption security. With SafeNet integration, users can generate, manage and store encryption keys on a KeySecure server for streamlined key administration.
Google Apps is a service that provides independently customizable versions of Google web applications, such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Docs, and Drive to enterprise customers. The SafeNet Trusted Access uses SAML to integrate with Google Apps to provide two factor authentication for secure identity verification.
