Google reacts to Office 365 momentum with beefier Apps suite

Juan Carlos Perez | June 26, 2014
It's called Drive for Work, costs twice as much as Apps for Business, and includes unlimited cloud storage for all users. Sorry, Microsoft.

Google has also improved Drive for all users by applying end-to-end encryption to files, meaning they're protected from prying eyes while in transit from users' devices to Google and as they move among the company's data centers, as well as while they are "at rest" on Google servers.

Back in March, Google applied this type of encryption to Gmail, saying at the time that a big motivation for providing enhanced protection came from the revelations of government snooping by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

Google announced Drive for Work and the Docs and Drive enhancements at its I/O Conference in San Francisco.
