Google Customers Can Whitelist External Domains

If you use the productivity suite for Google, you can now whitelist particular domains so you can easily share files with the organization. If you use apps for business or education, you’ll be able to use this feature to quickly send information to the desired recipients. Many companies use the Apps for Business feature and require that data be restricted in some way.

Have you ever sent an email to the wrong person? Most people have at some point, and that can be problematic in business. At Comodo, we understand the difficulties associated with emails, such as sharing acquisition offers, sending time-sensitive information to a competitor and more.

With their new tool, which is called Whitelisted Domains, you can add a domain to your Google whitelist and employees can all work together under that domain. The Google products that support whitelisted sharing include:

  • Sheets
  • Slides
  • Drive
  • Docs

Productivity can soar when you use this feature because you’ll reduce friction and allow employees to be more productive. Administrators will also be able to turn off the whitelisted domains when necessary so the highly-sensitive material can be shared with only those who need it.

How to Do It

If you are a Comodo customer, you can easily whitelist Google domains and others because we have integrated our security product to allow you to set whitelists in place for various things, such as emails.

You’ll need to create a list for that particular domain or app first, and then you’ll want to add each domain required. Just remember that all subdomains and aliases will need to be whitelisted, as well.

While our product does focus primarily on security, whitelisting is a form of security that ensures sensitive data is safe. Hackers won’t be able to get to that information, and it can’t be shared with people outside the organization. Contact us to learn more about a Google whitelist.
