An extensive search engine for Google Drive

If your Google Drive web drive is so full that it’s hard to find the files you need on it, then you’ll be happy to know that Google has added a new, enhanced search engine to its service. Thanks to it, finding the needed materials will become much simpler.

This week, Mountain View has released the latest update to the Google Drive application that gives users access to a network drive. The update introduces a couple of fixes and above all focuses on streamlining the content search process. In total, four completely new search elements have come up.

IOS users no longer need to open the Google Drive application to search for a particular file on disk. Soon they will be able to use 3D Touch technology to access their files directly from the home screen. In addition, they have access to advanced search mode, and the next change is the ability to search by file type.

You can search by email address of the owner of the file or keywords. You can also search for them after the modification date, as well as people who have access to it.

The distribution of updates has only just begun, so some users will have to wait a bit.

Gmail will prevent leaks of information

Google helps a hand to all entrepreneurs whose businesses could harm the leak of confidential data. An American concern has announced that the business version of Gmail will be equipped with a special technology that will scan emails in the box to prevent important data from being taken over by the competition.

The American company has just launched a new program called Data Loss Prevention, which aims to protect corporate mail from leaking sensitive information. The system will scan the documents on an ongoing basis by using an optical character recognition system to ensure that they do not contain sensitive information such as passwords or other codes.

This process is to be done before sending an email, which will first be checked for the presence of certain words, phrases and numbers. If the system detects, for example, a credit card number, the email will be paused.
