*What is pooled storage? Pooled storage means that any unused storage capacity is released from the user’s account to the rest of the organization. For example, if you manage 200 users on Workspace Business Plus, your organization will have 1,000 TB (200 users x 5 TB) of storage shared across the organization.

Special Considerations.

Organizations within some industries require compliance with security standards such as HIPAA, ITAR, CJIS, and GDPR. For these organizations, Enterprise security features and end-to-end email encryption may be needed.
