Recently, Google is starting a new pilot program restricting some of its employees to use internet-free desktops.

A Google spokesperson in an emailed statement said, “Ensuring the safety of our products and users is one of our top priorities.”

“We routinely explore ways to strengthen our internal systems against malicious attacks”, the spokesperson added.

The company has taken this extreme step to reduce the risk of cyberattacks as there have been several cases where companies witness cyberattacks.

In January, Google announced that it was firing six percent of its total workforce or 12,000 employees. The company’s CEO Sundar Pichai recently claimed that the ex-Googlers created 2,000 startups.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said, “Googlers have left to create over 2,000 startups, last I counted, and I think that’s great. Some of them are cloud customers down the line for us.”

“Some of them come back. I think it’s healthy,” Sundar Pichai added.  

He further said, “Our work toward sharpening our focus—I view it as enduring work. We are constantly trying to make the company more efficient.”
