Google tightens cloud security for Apps users
"The ability to access your data from virtually anywhere enables higher productivity but, like traditional systems that don't run in the cloud, security concerns can arise if a user loses a computer or mobile device that can access sensitive information," he said.
"Starting today, administrators can easily invalidate a user's active connection to Google Apps services from the control panel. More specifically, administrators can now reset a user's sign-in cookies to help prevent unauthorised access to their account."
Smit explained that the system will log a user out from all web browser sessions, and require new authentication the next time that user attempts to access any Google Apps.
