Sensitive data is more secure on browser-based applications. When an employee finishes using web-based application, minimal data is left on the machine which is unlike the traditional software approach. Web based applications can be securely accessed on many devices, reducing the need for employees to transfer data on unsecured thumb drives. One in ten laptops go missing in the first 12 months of purchase, and 66% of workers report losing thumb drives with sensitive company data on. Google Apps removes the need for such devices and improves security whilst greatly enhancing the experience users have when accessing their data.
