What is Google Drive and what is it used for?
Google Drive is a G Suite service that lets you store, share, and access your files in a safe place, from any of your devices.
With Google Drive store as many files as you want. You can then access them at any time, from your computer or from a mobile device. You can also control how files are shared.
With the Business and Enterprise editions of G Suite you have unlimited storage, so you always have space for all your files. With centralized management, data loss prevention, and Vault for Drive, you can easily manage user accounts and file sharing to meet data-related compliance requirements.
With Google’s machine learning technology, Drive can predict what content you’ll need to access, anticipating your needs. Drive’s Quick Access feature uses natural language search and optical character recognition signals to identify relevant content and streamline your searches.
Use team drives to store your team’s work in secure, easy-to-manage shared spaces. The files that are added to the team drives belong to the entire team, so members have information always up to date. Plus, with Drive File Stream you have access to files directly from your computer, without the risk of cluttering up hard disk space. You’ll spend less time waiting for files to sync and increase your productivity.
With Google Drive you have control of the file sharing. Prevent access to your files until you decide to share them. Prevents multiple versions of the same file that then need to be merged, giving other users permissions to download, edit, comment, or query. You can also give an expiration date for shared files.
Google Drive works with hundreds of built-in apps, such as DocuSign to sign documents, CloudLock to add additional layers of security, and LucidCharts to create various types of diagrams, which you can use directly from Drive.
