Finally, Google Workspace is rolling out end-to-end encryption to Gmail, adding an extra layer of security to protect emails, attachments, and all other sensitive data sent on the web. 

Though this new update is still in the beta stages, eligible customers on Enterprise Plus, Education Standard, and Education Plus accounts can fill out an application via Google's support center to test the program.

"We're expanding customer access to client-side encryption in Gmail on the web. Google Workspace Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Education Standard customers are eligible to apply for the beta until January 20th, 2023," Google said in a blog post.

Client-side encryption or CSE in Gmail ensures that sensitive information or data cannot be deciphered even by Google's servers. Customers will continue to have control over encryption keys and as well, will identify services that provide access to those keys.

"Google Workspace already uses the latest cryptographic standards to encrypt all data at rest and in transit between our facilities," Google said. "Client-side encryption helps strengthen the confidentiality of your data while helping to address a broad range of data sovereignty and compliance needs."

Client-side encryption is available already available for Google Drive, Google Docs, Google meets, Sheets and Slides. CSE is also available for Google Calendar, though in the beta stage.

Google notes that this new security feature isn't available to users on Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Education Fundamentals, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers. Also, Gmail users with personal accounts aren't exempted from this list.
