On Thursday Google announced that they will be bringing full encryption to Google Apps with help from a new partnership with the email data protection company Zix. They just launched a new product for Google Apps accounts called Google Apps Message Encryption, or GAME for short.Google already supported secure messaging within their own servers, but once your email was sent to a different system, you were at the other system's mercy. This is why GAME is so important. You could different methods to add public-key cryptography to your messages, but it isn't practical and isn't good or organizations with a lot of users.
GAME is available at the price of $35 per year, per user. This allows Google Apps admins to configure their own security settings from the Google Apps dashboard. Not only is this an easy way for casual users to gain some comfort knowing that the NSA can't have their way with your email account, but for businesses, encrypted communication is an absolute must have.
GAME is available today because of the work that Zix and Google did on their first version of this product called Google Message Encryption, or GME. GME was a part of Postini, a whole toolbox made for email and web security. It was never really compatible with Google Apps, unless you went through a whole bunch of extra nonsense. But that built the foundation for what Google and Zix are bringing to the table now, and after 2 years of working toward making the transition of the Postini services to Google Apps, we now have GAME.This is absolutely perfect for anyone in the business world who need complete, fully encrypted messages.
