Armor - Enterprise Security For Google Drive

[Bristol], [United Kingdom],[10th December 2013] – Innovode Ltd. has released its first offering for the Google Enterprise market; Armor Encryption for Google Drive – Enterprise Edition. Having gained great success with their Personal Edition, Armor Enterprise Edition is positioned to be the market leader in Google Drive integrated encryption. Innovode Armor’s tight integration enables users to securely store, edit, share and collaborate on documents with the full power of Google Docs and Apps, directly through Google Drive. With many businesses restricting their use of cloud storage due to security considerations and regulation, Innovode’s Armor offers an effective and powerful solution.

Peter Spellward (Executive Director and Founder, Innovode Ltd.) explains “The enterprise edition of Armor was designed to solve the real security concerns businesses face. Among others Healthcare, Legal and Education are three strong verticals we offer a comprehensive, effective solution for.” Howard Snart (Executive Director and Founder, Innovode Ltd.) adds “Our enterprise edition brings back the secure coherent productivity businesses perhaps enjoyed while working on-premise. For Google Drive users Armor satisfies current regulations, enables responsible practice and safeguards intellectual property from access violation”.


The growth of mobile devices (BYOD) and cloud hosted storage use has made data more accessible than ever before. While this bring benefits such as flexible working and collaboration it also increases the risks of data spillage and data loss. Sensitive information such as protected health information (PHI) customer confidential information, and intellectual property stored in the cloud create real security concerns, indeed the penalties for having such information leaked or lost can be very high. For the business it could result in embarrassment, a loss of competitive advantage, or for not conforming to mandatory regulation like HIPAA it could be a severe fine.

In some cases the concerns over storing such information in the cloud cause businesses to adopt a hybrid ecosystem with sensitive files stored on-premise and non-sensitive files in the cloud. In other cases businesses restrict how sensitive files may be used, such as preventing them from being mailed introducing internal boundaries to limit access. These methods create significant administrative burden and inefficiencies in working practice. Armor addresses these concerns by providing a solution that offers security and compliance without compromising productivity.

For the many problems surrounding the storage of sensitive information in the cloud, Armor Enterprise Edition represents a single solution for Google enabled businesses. Watch the introductory video on YouTube.
