MDR and XDR via Google Workspace


Share post

Whether in a cafe, airport terminal or home office – employees work in many places. However, this development also brings with it challenges when it comes to access to software services, servers and systems. Sophos has now integrated its security solutions into Google Workspace.

To accommodate the cloud-based and collaborative way of working, Sophos has now integrated its solutions into Google Workspace to protect the business-critical productivity tools and data in the Google world from sophisticated attacks. While Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) includes built-in security controls, investigating and validating incoming data and responding to threats can be challenging for under-resourced security teams. This is where the Sophos security ecosystem comes in with Extended Detection and Response (XDR) and Sophos Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.

MDR instead of security controls via Google Workspace

The Sophos integration collects and correlates all relevant security and telemetry data from the Google Workspace productivity suite. This gives MDR analysts the insight they need to identify and stop threats early. The MDR service provides 24/7 security monitoring, filters out redundant alerts and investigates threats in the Google Workspace environment, such as unauthorized access to Google accounts or malicious mail activity.

Companies that use Sophos XDR for internal investigations and response can now also integrate telemetry with Google Workspace. This correlates and detects potentially malicious activity, such as suspicious logins, activity with protected user accounts, or anomalous changes to administrator settings, with threat reports from other sources.

Sophos offers turnkey integration with MDR and XDR solutions for a range of technologies and third-party providers. Integrations with productivity tools like Microsoft 365 and now Google Workspace are available to all new and existing MDR and XDR customers at no additional cost.
