Veza for Google Drive

Google drive makes it easy to collaborate on files with stakeholders both inside and outside your organization. The flipside is that it’s easy to lose track of who has access to sensitive data, potentially risking customer information, financial data and intellectual property.

Veza allows you to definitively answer the question of who can and should have access to what resources in Google Drive

Identity security challenges in Google Drive

Access Visibility

Access to files in Google Drive can be granted directly, through Google Workspace groups, or through an external IDP, even to guest users! To protect your data you need to know who has access to what.

Drive misconfigurations

A misconfigured drive can open the door to sharing with users outside your organization, or even leaving sensitive files accessible to anyone on the internet.

Manual access reviews

Unstructured data in Google Drive files is tough to build into your compliance workflows leading to headaches and manual processes at audit time.

How Veza can help
