New Rules homepage in the Admin console makes security simpler


In the Admin console, Google is now making some changes to how rules are created, viewed, and managed. We are, in particular,

  • Making all Google Workspace customers have access to the Rules homepage. 
  • To make rule discovery and management simpler, we've combined the laws and security rules sections.
  • Customers of Enterprise Standard and Enterprise Plus now have access to a rule templates tab, which allows them to easily set up guidelines for common use cases.
  • The Investigation Tool, which is now open to Enterprise Plus clients, now includes one-click rule review.

Google hopes that this knowledge will make it easier for administrators to choose which policies to enforce ahead of time, to retain with unified control, and to investigate with direct Investigation tool integration.

  • Admins can learn about the advantages of allowing rules, as well as how to manage alerts and email updates with Google-provided rules, on the new Rules homepage.
  • Defining alerts for particular audit log incidents, protecting confidential content, automating decisions on specific tasks, and preserving devices are all advantages of making personalized rules for other use cases.
For Enterprise Standard and Enterprise Plus admins:

A new Rules Templates page has been added to the site. These pre-made models can be customized to automatically set up guidelines for common use cases based on best practices. Preventing the exchange of confidential personal, financial, or health information is an example of this.
Google has also added one-click rule overview of activity and data security guidelines, as well as investigation tool integration, to the list view for Enterprise Plus customers.

Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on April 13, 2021

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
