Deploying a managed IT service to address the provisions’ of Google’s privacy policy

Several weeks ago, internet search giant Google rolled out a new privacy policy that will allow the company to study users’ online habits with unprecedented detail and precision. This means that Google will be using information collected from users themselves (name, address, phone number etc.) as well as data harvested from online habits (who a person interacts with, sites he or she frequents) in order to target people with more specific advertisements and service recommendations.

While officials in the corporate world have been expressing concern over this policy, Google representatives have reportedly claimed that enterprise users will not be affected by the new system of operations.

According to reports, as long as those using corporate, government or education Google applications use separate accounts for business processes and personal use, then no data harvested from individual use will be shared with larger enterprise suites.

However, the situation may be more complex than it seems, especially considering that many small business users do not have separate Google accounts and use one platform to conduct all work-related and personal business online.

This presents a significant problem for enterprise Google users, as in many cases it may be difficult to skirt around the privacy policy to prevent data harvesting, potentially necessitating a move to a different service provider that brings forth an entire different series of logistical struggles.

While experts on the subject suggest in an article for Network World that a business can help protect itself by being careful about language used in its contract with Google, companies seeking additional security can do so by partnering with a managed IT service that can provide network security solutions, such as CTI Technology.

With sophisticated intrusion detection systems and firewalls, these professionals can allow a company to maintain an existing relationship with Google while easing worries of improper information access or a corporate data breach.
