Google commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying G Suite. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of G Suite on their organizations.
Google G Suite offers a set of work applications that help organizations transform their businesses. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed eight enterprise customers with years of experience using G Suite.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.

"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.
