The DataMotion for G Suite™ service allows sensitive data to be securely exchanged with customers, business partners and vendors. It’s easy to use since integrates with applications, mobile devices and systems already in use, without the need to install special apps or exchange encryption keys. After following the steps in this guide, G Suite for Business, Education, or Government customer can send and receive sensitive data right from their Gmail™ webmail service, with confidence that the messages are delivered securely and in compliance with privacy regulations.
The remainder of this article discusses how to setup your G Suite service to work with DataMotion and assumes that you possess both a G Suite account and the access rights necessary to perform administrative tasks.
