Google released a new Google Apps security white paper to help customers learn more about the security practices, policies, and technology that support Google Apps. "In today's ultra-connected, web-capable world, understanding how data will be protected is ultimately more meaningful than knowing it's physically located in one data center or another. We know that our customers expect us to be transparent, and we work hard to do just that. We're always improving and evolving the security of our systems, and we work every day to help protect against new threats," Google writes.
