Independent Security Verification badge in Google Workspace Marketplace

What’s changing?

You will now be able to see a new independent security verification badge for select apps in the Google Workspace Marketplace.

This badge indicates that the app was validated by an independent security assessor to meet the integration and security requirements, as outlined in Tier 3 of the Cloud Application Security Assessment

In the Marketplace, you can already see app information like information about app access to user data, who the developer is and their privacy policies, and more.

Surfacing this additional app security information helps admins make an even more informed decision before installing or allowlisting apps for their users. 

Note that passing an independent security assessment is an annual requirement for apps in the Recommended for Workspace category and optional for all other Marketplace apps.
