Google Acquires AppBridge

Tech giant Google yesterday announced it has acquired AppBridge in a move that it said would make it easier to migrate to the cloud. AppBridge is an enterprise-grade, G Suite migration tool that helps organizations seamlessly migrate from their on-prem, cloud-based and hybrid solutions to Google Drive.

“It’s not just your files that need to be moved; permissions also need to map correctly; content likely needs to be reorganized, and some data probably needs to be archived,” said Google Drive’s Group Product Manager Alex Vogenthaler.



With AppBridge, Google said organizations can migrate files effortlessly to G Suite from existing file servers or content management systems like SharePoint, or from many other cloud platforms they might be using.

“File permissions are also brought over when you migrate, which means your team’s file access remains unchanged and your data stays safe. We’re working together with AppBridge to bring them into the G Suite team. Stay tuned for more information in the near future,” said Vogenthaler.
