A Big Concern for CIOs
Email is one of the least secure things employees do on their computers and web-based solutions like Gmail and Workspace magnify this issue because of their reliance on the browser.
Workspace on the Desktop, Built for the Cloud
Kiwi for Gmail represents a new approach to Google Workspace. Rather than using Workspace through a general browser, using a specialized desktop browser built specifically around Workspace and its applications allows a great deal more functionality and power. By creating a stand-alone dedicated app, we’ve created a solution that maintains all the cloud-based benefits that you love about Google’s Workspace while powerfully extending its functionality. As a result, our unique application for Workspace can :
- Have windows for every Workspace app
- Provide seamless multi-account use of Drive and editors
- Interface with your desktop file system
- Utilize system-level APIs
- Interact with other desktop applications
- Seamlessly handle various file types
- Generate system notifications
- Provide dedicated keyboard shortcuts
Not only does this allow us to transform the Workspace user experience into something more like the familiar Microsoft Office Desktop Office Suite, but Kiwi completely integrates the entirety of Workspace with your desktop operating system and file directories.
Removing Workspace from the Browser
Kiwi takes both Gmail and Google apps like Docs, Sheets, and Slides and separates them from the browser, so they exist on their own and are completely integrated with the desktop OS and file systems.
Everything done within Kiwi is completely isolated from anything that goes on in the browser on your computer.
Isolating Every Account
The average Gmail user has more than two accounts. So while companies rely on Workspace to increase collaboration and productivity, the reality is that many employees also have their own personal and business accounts.
Even within Kiwi, every single account is completely isolated from every other so that their data can't mix. Since people typically have their work account and personal account open all day while they're working, that matters.
