Google Secure Access VPN Client Installed

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19767


A potentially unauthorized VPN connection is installed on the remote host


The remote host has the program 'Google Secure Access' installed. This software is a VPN client allowing roaming users to establish a VPN connection with Google's VPN server, thus protecting the local communications from being eavesdropped by a local user. This potentially allows Google to eavesdrop on the communications of the remote user.

Make sure that the remote installation of Google Secure Access has been done in accordance to your security policy.


Disable this software if it does not match your corporate security policy.
