It’s a given that the level of access to information is determined by the roles people have within your company or organization. Having the right tools to establish perimeters and authorizations is key for a good security base.
Once you’re using Google Apps, providing essential tools for the management of these varying levels of access and assigning “admin roles” is easily accomplished by following the steps outlined in this white paper. With the help of this Google Apps guide, your super administrator can develop and establish organizational units, assign and organize admin roles, as well as configure member access to settings and services. Learn how to best develop and configure service and setting details, and how to easily create administrative privileges with a series of pre-built roles. While the five pre-built roles supplied by Google Apps (help desk admin, groups admin, user management admin, services admin, and reseller admin) are generally adequate for use, more customization may be needed. Help for assignation and/or creation of these roles by the super administrator is also explained. This Google Apps guide also gives information on providing additional management services for Chrome devices, which can be adapted by the user to your departmental requirements, and discusses how Google Apps Directory Synch (GADS) helps to organize users.
