In recent time,Google team announced various new features to help G Suite administrator to manage their all users in more efficient way.

Calendar email notification logs in Admin Console:

Track calendar notifications and view changes to your users’ calendars, events, and subscriptions

 

G Suite administrator, they can track changes to calendars, events, and subscriptions in the Google Calendar audit log. They can also track the email notifications associated with these actions in the audit log. This information is helpful when you troubleshoot issues or when your users notice discrepancies or unexpected changes to their calendars, shared calendars, or specific calendar events. Log entries usually appear within one half-hour of the user action.

 

Users in your organisation they collaborate using Google Calendar, Mainly these users depend on email notifications that are generated while they manage events and calendars. Such as:event invitations, event updates, RSVPs and calendars sharing can all generate email notifications that are sent to event guests or calendar subscribers.

 

Sometimes accidentally these notifications are triggered by third party calendar clients or go missing (because of incorrectly configured Gmail filters, accidental email deletions, etc.) With this new feature Google Team is exposing calendar email notification logs in the Calendar audit section of Admin Console, so as a G Suite administrator, you can easily investigate issues related to calendar email notifications. Each log entry provides insights on the type of calendar notification, its sender and its recipient as well as information on the calendar client that triggered it. You can also obtain the notification’s Message-ID which can be cross-referenced with the Email Audit logs, in order to confirm whether the notification was successfully delivered to its intended recipients.

 

 


Hope with this new email notification logs in admin console, it will make it easier for administrator to troubleshoot issues for their users.

 

Email gets quarantined,Administrator can now notify internal senders:

 

As a G Suite administrator, you can configure policies and settings to quarantine messages sent to and from your organisation. Quarantines can help prevent spam, minimise data loss, and protect confidential information. They can also help moderate message attachments so that your users don’t send, open, or click something they shouldn’t.

 

Below is an example of the email that users will receive when their emails get quarantined:

 

 

How to Enable to this Feature:This feature can be enabled from Admin console, where you setup and configure policies to quarantine messages, here there will be a checkbox at the bottom to "Notify sender when mail is quarantined (onward delivery only)".

New Backup & Sync Tool from Google & Drive File Stream

posted Jun 16, 2017, 4:36 AM by Sandeep J   [ updated Jun 16, 2017, 4:38 AM ]

New Backup & Sync Tool from Google & Drive File Stream..!

Backup &  Sync From Google:

Google Drive is preparing to roll out a computer backup tool that will enable users to backup their entire computer. The change will greatly expand the functions of Google Drive by changing it from a basic cloud storage app that requires files to be stored within it. To do this, Google will roll out a new tool called Backup and Sync later this month.(28 June 2017).

 

How Backup and Sync will work:

As per Google Team, this will be the newest version of Google Drive for Mac or PC. The computer backup tool will integrate Google Drive with the Google Photos desktop up-loader, enabling it to any current Drive for Mac/PC settings in the Admin console.

Google’s upcoming computer backup app will function in some ways like cloud storage services. After downloading Backup and Sync tool, Users can automatically backup any folder you tell it to back-up. Also it is possible to tell Google’s computer backup service to automatically backup the user's’ entire hard drive, if they wish.

Backup and Sync also enables users to access the files they have backed up using Google’s computer backup system from anywhere.

Backup tool designed for consumers; business version coming soon

This new backup & Sync tool is mainly designed to be used by consumers. As such, it recommends that business customers who are using G Suite keep using Drive for Mac or PC until their new Drive File Stream is available. Drive File Stream is aimed at enterprises, and it’s currently available to members of Google’s Early Adopter Program. All G Suite Basic, Business, Enterprise, Education and Nonprofit domains will be able to start using Google’s enterprise-focused computer backup system later this year.

 

Drive File Stream will enable users to access large sets of corporate data without all that data having to take up massive amounts of space on their hard drives. In view of the enterprise-focused app that’s coming later this year, the company won’t automatically upgrade G Suite users from Drive for Mac and PC to its new Backup and Sync system at this time. Enterprise customers who allow their users to install Drive on their own computers will be able to upgrade to Backup and Sync starting on June 28, although users at enterprises that don’t allow use of Google Drive won’t be able to use the computer backup system with G Suite.

 

Access Drive files on Mac/PC faster, using less disk space

Introducing Drive File Stream — a new way to access all of your Google Drive files directly from your Mac or PC, without using up all your disk space. Unlike traditional file sync tools, Drive File Stream doesn’t require you to download your files first in order to access them from your computer. Instead, when you need to view or edit a file, it automatically streams from the cloud, on-demand. With Drive File Stream, your team will spend less time waiting for files to sync, no time worrying about disk space, and more time being productive.

Get your files in seconds with smarter offline access

With Drive File-stream, files you open are streamed directly from the cloud on-demand. You can also select files or folders that you want to access offline at anytime. The files that you are likely to work on from your Mac or PC become available in the background intelligently, making it much quicker to access them later.

Work with all the tools and apps you’re used to:

With Drive File Stream, you can work with Drive files directly from the apps you're used to, like Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop. Any changes you make to files in those apps are saved automatically to Drive and can be accessed from any of your devices later.

Drive File Stream Early Adopter Program

We're excited to extend this new Drive feature to customers through our Early Adopter Program (EAP) for feedback. The EAP for Drive File Stream is only open to G Suite Enterprise, Business and Education customers, and G Suite admins may apply with their domain on behalf of their organisations.

G Suite Hangouts Meet & chat..!

Google has quietly launched a new video conferencing application called Meet by Google Hangouts, which is designed for HD video meetings. The web and mobile application appears to be the latest addition to Google’s lineup of business products known as G Suite.

It also introduced a new intelligent bot, @meet, to automate the scheduling of chat-based meetings.

This is announced during the Google Cloud Next '17 event in San Francisco.Hangouts Meet was designed to make it easy for groups of people to quickly launch and join video meetings from wherever they're working. And the new Hangouts Chat app is aimed at enabling easy mobile messaging for enterprise team members on the go.

Start your meetings with a quick click: Hangouts Meet

Hangouts Meet is a new video meeting experience with one goal: make joining meetings effortless so that people can be as productive as they are when they’re face-to-face. Google has consistently heard from customers about ways they can improve Hangouts, like making it easier to work with external clients or reducing the ‘time to start’ a meeting to zero. That's why Google has built Hangouts Meet to have a light, fast interface and smart participant management.


blogmeet1.png

Running 30-person video conferences smoothly is easy with Meet. Simply start your meetings with a shared link — no accounts, plugins, downloads or hassles. Meet provides a place for everyone to join from Calendar, an email invite or an ad-hoc share. If you’re dialing in from a conference room, your laptop or using the dedicated mobile app, just a few clicks and you’re in.

Hangouts Meet allows even large business teams to easily launch video conference meetings through a shared link without the need to download new software or set up new accounts or plugins. Users can dial in from anywhere to enter a meeting with just a few clicks.

Currently only available to Early adopter, Hangouts Meet will be rolled out gradually to all G Suite customers over coming period of time.

Bring your teams together on projects: introducing Hangouts Chat

Hangouts Chat is an intelligent communication app for teams that takes direct messaging in Hangouts and evolves it to reflect the way modern teams talk business.

Working on a project means bringing cross-functional teams together, discussing tasks that need to get done and sharing your work. Chat is built with exactly this in mind.


chat3.png


Dedicated, virtual rooms create a lasting home for each project, with threaded conversations so your team’s progress is easy to follow. Chat’s deep integration with G Suite means shared content from Drive and Docs, or photos and videos can be viewed directly in conversations. And powerful, filterable search in Chat makes it easy to find all your content dating back to the start of the project.


Chat is built not only to reflect the way teams work, but to provide a platform for the enterprise tools they work with. The Hangouts Chat platform supports a wide range of capabilities — from bots to simple scripting using Google App Script and integrates with third-party applications so teams can do more right from within the conversation.Hangouts Meet is generally available today with Early adopter and will gradually roll out to all G Suite customers over the next few weeks. G Suite customers can apply to try Hangouts Chat through the Early Adopter Program.

Google Vault: Full support for Google Drive, Team Drives, and Google Groups

posted Mar 15, 2017, 9:31 PM by Sandeep J   [ updated Apr 20, 2017, 2:34 AM ]

Google Vault: Full support for Google Drive, Team Drives, and Google Groups..!


Google Recently launched additional, crucial functionality in Vault, including full support for Drive, newly launched Team Drives, and Google Groups. Google Vault helps your organisation meet its legal needs, by allowing you to manage your employees' G Suite data for eDiscovery and compliance purposes.


Vault Retention policies for Google Drive, including Team Drives:


Now onward along with Emails,G Suite admins can search and export employee Drive files, they can also set retention policies to manage the lifecycle of files in My Drive and the just-launched Team Drives, regardless of whether they’re Google or non-Google files (as long as they’re owned by users in your domain).


This default rule will apply to all users in your domain. You can set an indefinite retention policy (such that files are never expunged), or you can choose to have files expunged at the end of a specific time period. This default rule can be applied to all files or only to files that have been deleted by users.


Admin can also set custom retention rules for specific organisational units (OUs) or for Team Drives. Like with mail, custom rules override the default rule and, if multiple custom rules apply to a file, the longest rule wins. Custom rules can be applied to all files or only to files that have been deleted by users.


The implementation of retention rules and holds, as well as the expiration of files in Drive, can be subject to delays:
When you create or update a retention rule or hold, it can take up to three hours for the rule to take effect and protect the relevant files. Files deleted by users during this period are not retained and cannot be retrieved.
When a retention coverage period expires or a hold is removed, it can take up to 15 days for affected files to be removed from Drive.

Unlike with mail, you cannot target custom Drive retention rules with specific terms.



Legal holds on Google Drive files


In addition to setting retention policies, you can now place legal holds on your employees' Google Drive and Team Drives files, whether they are Google files or non-Google files . Doing so will preserve all files that are owned by or shared with the user on hold, regardless of whether that user deletes those files. If a user on hold deletes a file, it will appear as deleted for him or her—but it will be available in Vault until the hold is removed. Remember that holds always take precedence over retention rules.


Export point-in-time Google Drive files


Vault now also allows you to export revisions of your employees’ Drive and Team Drive files from a specific point in time (this applies to Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drawings files). This can be done by simply specifying the desired Version Date in the search form.




Vault for Google Groups


Vault now works with Groups, meaning you can search, export, and set retention policies and place legal holds on your employees’ Groups content. Groups can be used for email lists, forums, and shared or collaborative inboxes, and now you can apply the same retention and eDiscovery programs that you use in Gmail for content stored in Groups archives.


Vault is fully integrated with Gmail and Google Groups. Thus when you’re searching for email with Vault, you're actually searching your organization’s message archive. This means:
Messages are available in Vault as soon as they're received by Gmail or posted to a Group.
You can use the same familiar search operators you use with Gmail.
Vault indexes approximately the first 250 pages of text in a message. 

Group owners are able to turn archiving on or off for their groups. You can use Vault to retain and search all messages in Groups where archiving is turned on. If a group owner turns archiving off, the messages from that group are still available in the mailboxes of licensed Vault users.


Notes:

  • Both the retention policy and legal holds features are not yet available for Apps Script.

  • This feature is not yet available for Google Forms, Apps Script, or any non-Google document types.

G Suite basic: Restore Deleted Data

posted Mar 1, 2017, 2:14 AM by Sandeep J

G Suite basic: Restore Deleted Data..

Google announced Data Loss Prevention feature, This Data Loss prevention is currently available for G Suite Business(Unlimited) edition customers only, but can do nothing to protect customers from sync errors, or errors where admins or users accidentally delete critical email or Google Drive data for G Suite basic customers.

So there may be a question in mind of all G Suite Basic customers, Can we restore if one of user deleted emails or drive date permanently from his account? If Yes then How?


The answer for their first question is “YES” & for their 2nd question:

There are couple of options available for G Suite Basic customers to restore their permanently deleted data from their account, but it’s important to be fully aware of the capabilities and limitations of each.

g suite data restore.png


From Google Admin Console-BUILT-IN RESTORE option:

If a G Suite user permanently deletes their Gmail or Drive data and later wants to get it back,you may be able to retrieve it for them. As an administrator, you can restore the user’s data from the Admin console within a date range you specify.

You can only restore permanently deleted items. An item is permanently deleted when the user's Trash is emptied.After you restore an item in Drive, the user needs to re-share the item for others to have access.


Google allows admins to restore Drive data for their users up to 25 days after it is “permanently deleted” from the user’s Trash. Admins can also restore Gmail that had been deleted in the past 30 days via the Email Audit API. Using Google’s built-in restore for Google Drive is best if it’s a recent data loss incident and when there aren’t too many files in the Trash that can clutter up the user’s Drive during the restore process. It’s also important for the user and the administrator to be in close communication throughout the process since the administrator won’t have the necessary visibility into what’s happening in the user’s Drive, and the user won’t have visibility into the restore process.


What you can do

  • Restore data for up to 10 users at a time.

  • Restore data that was permanently deleted within the past 25 days.

  • Select a date range to restore data that was deleted within that range.

  • Check a user’s Gmail inbox or Drive folder to confirm the data is restored.

What you can’t do

  • Restore data that was permanently deleted more than 25 days ago.

  • From the spam folder, restore deleted messages.

  • In Drive, restore deleted Google My Maps files.

  • If a user met their Drive storage quota, restore their Drive data.

GOOGLE VAULT EXPORT/IMPORT Option for Restoring Data:

If you are G Suite Basic customer and opted for Google Vault which is additional paid service from Google,then in this case Google Vault is another option for restoring lost data. Since Vault is not built with data restoration in mind,but still user can restore their emails to their account with Vault,Please find below process for same:


  • Export the deleted messages from Vault to an mbox file.

  • Choose one of these options to import the messages into Gmail:

Use a third-party tool to import the mbox file into Gmail.

Use a third-party tool to convert the mbox file to PST. You can then import the messages into Gmail using G Suite Migration for Microsoft Exchange


Also there some limitation while restoring data with Vault:


  • No sharing settings. In the export/import process mentioned above, all of your sharing settings get lost.

  • Currently Vault is unable to restore chats or files deleted from Google Drive.


Vault is built for legal eDiscovery, and also along with this it gives you the ability to restore G Suite Data for your domain users.

G Suite Enterprise Edition

posted Feb 15, 2017, 2:18 AM by Sandeep J

G Suite Enterprise Edition..!


Google recently launched Enterprise edition of it`s G Suite of cloud services for organisations. G Suite Enterprise is the premium office suite. In addition to everything available in G Suite Business, it includes advanced administrator controls and customisation features.Having greater control and visibility when protecting sensitive assets, however, should also be a top concern in today’s world.So Google is giving customers the critical control and visibility they expect in G Suite with:

  • Powerful access control for administrators with security key enforcement.
  • Data control with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Google Drive, DLP for Gmail, and S/MIME for Gmail.
  • Analytics and insights by connecting BigQuery with Gmail.

Security key enforcement: For existing user Google has provided with 2 step verification option, With 2-step verification, admins can opt for their company to use Security Keys, which are both easier for users and more secure against common (phishing) attacks than other methods. Security Keys plug directly into a laptop or pair with a mobile device using Bluetooth or NFC, instead of receiving a code via text. Now in Enterprise edition,Google Team has added the ability for admins to enforce this measure by restricting login solely to users with a Security Key. Admins will also be able to manage the deployment of Security Keys and view usage reports.


Data loss prevention (DLP) for Google Drive: Google launched DLP for Gmail with easy-to-set-up rules, OCR image scan recognition and advanced customisation. Now Google team extending DLP to Google Drive, making it even easier for admins to secure sensitive data, control what content can be stored and protect users from accidentally sharing confidential information externally. G Suite Enterprise DLP protection goes beyond standard DLP with easy-to-configure rules and OCR recognition of content stored in images so admins can easily enforce policies and control how data is shared.


DLP.png


S/MIME for Gmail: When it comes to Gmail security, there are dozens of security measures running behind the scenes to keep your emails safe, and Google supports industry-standard authentication to help combat email spoofing. Unfortunately, other email services that you exchange emails with might not take similar measures to protect your data,So due to this Google is offering additional protection by giving you the option to bring your own certificates for S/MIME encryption. Administrators will be able to enforce S/MIME usage and can set DLP rules based on specific organisational unit needs.


Gmail logs & BigQuery integration: Gmail logs contain valuable information that can help administrators diagnose issues or unlock insights.Now Google Team is making it easier to analyse Gmail logs with a pre-configured BigQuery integration so administrators can run sophisticated, high-performing custom queries, analyse their data and build custom dashboards.


Third-party email archiving: Google Vault helps you easily archive Gmail content while also complying with retention for legal holds and audit reporting. Here some organisations use other third-party SMTP archiving solutions like HP Autonomy or Veritas. So for them to make it simple to integrate third-party archiving solutions of your choice with Gmail.


All such exciting features are now embedded with G Suite Enterprise Edition now, If you want to get more information on this G Suite Enterprise,feel free to contact us.

Google Cloud-Mobile back-end as a service (MBaaS)

posted Feb 9, 2017, 1:04 AM by Sandeep J   [ updated Feb 9, 2017, 1:06 AM ]

Mobile backend as a service (MBaaS)


Google team launched an important new release of Firebase that consolidates several of Google’s mobile offerings into a single product. The new Firebase reduces the complexity of building mobile client and back-end services and provides tools to help you grow your user base, earn revenue from your app and collect and analyse app-event data. Cloud Platform gives developers comprehensive solutions with a focus on ease of use and speed – all without having to manage infrastructure.


Firebase

Modern tools should handle the complexity of real-time applications on behalf of developers.

With Firebase, you can easily build a scalable and loosely coupled system. For example, you can add iOS or web clients without any impact to existing Android clients. If you need back-end services, App Engine Flexible Environment can add new back-end capacity automatically.

Google also published a new solution document that demonstrates how to build a native chat application with a step-by-step guide and sample code for both an Android app and an App Engine-based backend service. Build a mobile app using Firebase and App Engine flexible environment shows how to handle interactions between the Android app and servlets running in App Engine Flexible Environment. Firebase is a unified app platform for iOS, Android, and the web that effortlessly syncs your data across all devices. Without requiring any server-side management, Cloud Functions lets you write single-purpose functions that respond to events. firebase.png

Recommended for:

Limiting on-device data storage by storing JSON data in the Firebase Real Time Database and files in Firebase Storage.

Sending notifications with Firebase Cloud Messaging.

Automated real-time data synchronisation across multiple devices.

Gracefully handling the offline case.

Authenticating users through a variety of identity providers.

Rapid development of a backend service.


Not recommended for:

Apps that need a back-end service to modify the synchronised data.


Mobile Backend at Google Scale

With App Engine, focus only on differentiating, high-level business logic using your favourite language. If you are doing container-based development, try Container Engine powered by Kubernetes to automate deployment and scaling of your containerised applications. For developers with existing or legacy projects who want the full control of bare VMs, Compute Engine offers high performance VMs with industry-leading pricing and combustibility. Use standard REST APIs or try the open source gRPC project for a lightweight data format used internally by engineering teams at Google.


Storage & Analytics

Store binary media or structured data on Google’s secure, global infrastructure. Choose from managed SQL to NoSQL options, including our category-defining archival product Nearline.

With your data on Cloud Platform, unlock insights with Google’s pioneering big data analytics products. Query petabytes of data with BigQuery, all without managing any infrastructure. Process both offline and real-time streaming data from your mobile apps using a unified programming model with Data-flow.


Speed is a Feature

Speed is a feature, and latency makes or breaks the mobile user experience. Google’s private fiber network spans the globe with over 70 points of presence across 33 countries, meaning your app data reaches users with the lowest latency possible. Whether it’s raw application data or media-rich imagery and video, your app data travels Google’s global network from our data centres to your users, anywhere in the world.


Google App Maker..!

Google App Maker.



Google has recently announced the launch of its new feature called the App Maker. This new service will enable users, who are part of enterprises to create and customise applications according to their business requirements. App Maker, a new low-code developer tool for building custom enterprise applications. This App Maker will be available through Google’s Early Adopter Program for G Suite Business.

appmakerevo.png

As per the product manager of Google App Maker, Google is targeting enterprise developers who need to build line-of-business solutions for an entire company but need there to be less sophistication than developers who might build external-facing applications. App Maker is a low-code, application development tool that lets you quickly build and deploy custom apps tailored to your organisation's needs. Whether you’re looking for better ways to on-board new team members, staff projects, or approve employee requests, App Maker helps you build an app for that in days instead of months.

This service will allow users to drag and drop the widgets on an interface provided that it abides by the visual framework of Google’s material design. These applications can be further personalised with content from J Query, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. When the apps go live, users will be able to oversee and track them with the help of Google Analytics. This app will make users address their specific needs without taking the help of a developer.


Apart from developing a range of applications, App Maker will also connect with APIs and a variety of data sources. The system also features an in-built support for Maps, Groups, Contacts, and other services and products from G Suite. Users can also make use of Prediction API, Directory API, and other APIs to develop an even superior application.


Apps which will be created with the help of App Maker will run on the exact same infrastructure of G Suite services such as Google Drive, Google Calendar, and Gmail. The data generated within the App Maker can be stored in Google Drive, a well-structured database. Moreover, users will be able to combine and merge App Maker with other G Suite services too like Google Maps, Google Big-query, Google Translate, and Google Drive. Google has previewed its application development tool, App Maker, with a few of its G Suite customers who have already created and applied the applications in their organisations. Enterprise customers and partners have used App Maker to make everyday business processes simpler and more efficient-whether it’s to track suspicious login activities, take analog claims processes and make them digital, or track office inventory orders.


If you’re interested in trying out App Maker, it’s available today through our Early Adopter Program for G Suite Business customers.
