Google Workspace Client-side encryption (coming soon to beta) gives enterprises the ability to encrypt their data before sending it to Google’s servers. Client-side encryption gives customers direct control of encryption keys and makes customer data indecipherable, placing unprecedented control in the user’s hands. 

Futurex provides the world’s most versatile and secure key management service for encrypting data sent to Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

What is Client-side encryption?

Client-side encryption is a method of encrypting data on the user’s end before it is sent to the service provider. The user determines their encryption key, manages its lifecycle, and retains sole access to it. Third parties cannot decrypt the user’s data while it is hosted in the service provider’s infrastructure.


Advantages of Client-side encryption

Futurex delivers the most secure key management solution on the market. Organizations will immediately reap several key benefits:


  • Stored data is indecipherable to 3rd parties
  • Eliminates risk of host-side data leaks
  • Available on-premises or through the cloud 
  • Configurable across entire organizational units
  • Enterprise-wide privacy and security


Straight-Forward Setup

Enable Client-side encryption via Google Workspace Admin Console:

  1. Log into admin console
  2. Select option to add an external key
    service (KACLS)
  3. Enter the KACLS server address
  4. Specify organizational units
  5. Configure 3rd party Identity Provider
