The Best Gmail / Google Workspace Alternative Around

These features, combined with Proton’s commitment to end-to-end encryption, provide businesses with a secure and efficient communication platform – or, as I like to think of Proton: a truly viable alternative to Gmail and Google Workspace.

When it comes to privacy and security, Proton Mail is very, very good.

End-to-end encryption? Check. Zero-access encryption? Check. Open source code? Check. Secure core architecture? Check. Proton Mail ticks all the boxes for what a truly secure email service should offer.

But more than that, Proton Mail has proven time and again that they’re willing to stand up for their users’ privacy, even in the face of legal pressure. They’ve fought court orders, resisted government overreach, and even had their entire service blocked in Russia for refusing to play ball with the Kremlin.

Extract From My Primer on Getting Started With Proton Mail

The recently launched desktop app, included in Proton Mail’s business plans, further enhances the user experience by allowing seamless access to secure email, whether at a desk or on the go.

As privacy concerns continue to grow in the business world, Proton Mail is well-positioned to start picking up new users left, right, and center. The only downside about Proton is that more people don’t know about it.
