Google Cloud Reveal Business Security Updates: Google recently unveiled a selection of new security measures.  These updates are aimed at encouraging companies to migrate their workloads into the cloud. This is while Google seeks to take customers away from AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Jennifer Lin is director of product management at Google Cloud Platform. She believes a series of 20 updates will help firms to “build out a secure, scale-able environment”.

Furthermore, the most important announcement is a set of virtual private cloud service controls. These were developed for companies hesitant to put data into the cloud. Using these new controls, companies will be able to create a secure perimeter around data stored in API-based services such as the Google Cloud Storage.

Lin stated that the controls would mitigate data ex filtration risks from stolen identities. These would include IAM misconfigurations and malicious inside rogues: “Enterprises can create granular access control policies in Access Context Manager based on attributes like user location and IP address.”

Furthermore, Google US  has also unveiled a Cloud Security Command Centre. This will shield applications in the cloud. The service monitors an inventory of cloud assets. It also scans systems for sensitive data and detects web vulnerabilities all from one Google dashboard.

Access Transparency is the third big update. This lets customers view how their data is being managed. The tool also creates audit logs of when Google’s support team access data. The new tool provides explanations as to why it has done so.

Urs Holzle is Google’s senior vice president for technical infrastructure. She is also vocal on the subject. Holzle advised firms to migrate more of their data to the cloud.  She said; “In industries from financial services to healthcare to retail, companies are relying on the automation and scale, offered by the cloud to protect their data. This allows their employees to focus on building their business. However, many are coming to the same conclusion we have. In many cases, if you’re not moving to the cloud, you’re risking your business.”

With Googles reputation for use friendly offerings, this could equate to real competition for AWS and Microsoft.
