Google Drive Encryption, Recommended by Google

Interested in starting a trial of Drive encryption for CJIS, FINRA, HIPAA, PHI, PCI, ITAR, EAR, FISMA, PII, FERPA, GLBA, SSN, or other highly sensitive or regulated data? Let’s talk about a pilot deployment.


Object-level, client-side encryption for files uploaded to Google Drive

Google Drive offers amazing functionality but it comes with a trade-off. The vendor, Google in this case, can access your content under certain circumstances. You may request support for example. In most circumstances this is fine, you pay the experts to provide a service - just as you pay a financial institution to process financial requests.

There are many organizations that have regulatory requirements or internal policies and procedures that mandate YOU, the organization must control all access to this data under any and all circumstances. Police body camera footage is a typical example. ‘Bodycam’ footage requires massive amounts of secure data storage. Google’s unlimited storage offers a tempting reprieve but regulations often dictate very restrictive access.

With Virtru for Drive, you can have the best of both worlds. Leverage Google’s massive infrastructure (and cheap storage) while maintaining complete control of your data.


Watch this brief tutorial to see how Virtru for Google Drive provides end-to-end file encryption for confidential, compliant, and seamless document collaboration.



Ensure files uploaded to and shared from Google Drive stay private, so you don’t have to trust Google with your data. Integrate with existing key management processes and HSMs. Host your own keys for full control, or let Virtru host them and manage policies and key exchanges.



Maintain compliance with data privacy regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, and CCPA. Set and manage policies that automatically enforce encryption by Team Drive, Group, OU, user, or subfolder.

Secure Sharing

Protect files stored in Drive and maintain control wherever they’re shared -- both internally and externally, beyond Google. Give external recipients on Microsoft and other platforms secure access to files shared via Drive, without forcing them to create Google accounts or relying on risky open share links.
