Google Cloud Announces New Partnership to Boost Cloud Security

Google has announced several new strategic partnerships and security partner integrations to enhance the cloud security capabilities of the Google Cloud Platform.

Kevin Ichhpurani, Vice President of the Google Cloud Global Ecosystem and Sunil Potti, Vice President of Engineering at Google Cloud Security, said: “We understand that many customers have dedicated tools and strategic relationships with the industry’s leading security vendors. We want to meet you where you are, allowing you to preserve your investments, as well as benefit from the functionality you can’t get on other clouds. That’s why we work closely with partners in the security industry to help you better secure your applications and information.”

Google Cloud introduces a new solution that allows customers to manage security-based implementations and vulnerability management solutions—through collaboration with McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, and Qualys.

By expanding its strategic partnership with Palo Alto Networks, the world’s cybersecurity leader, Google Cloud will now be able to develop innovative solutions for Anthos, the open application modernization platform.

Google Cloud Platform will also facilitate integration with McAfee MVISION Cloud solution for data security, threat prevention, governance, and compliance capabilities for container workloads.

Google said: “Security is of top mind for every organization, at every stage of your cloud journey, whether you’re just beginning to migrate a few applications or running entire stacks of mission-critical workloads in the cloud.”

Google announced the general availability of Citrix Workspace on Google Cloud Platform. The remote access tool will be included in the G Suite that provides a single sign-on experience, multi-factor authentication, enhanced security policies, and end-to-end visibility and analytics. The company has also announced that Exabeam, a leading provider of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), will expand its SaaS cloud security management platform on Google Cloud to help customers bring scale and speed of the cloud to their existing SIEM platform.

A strategic partnership with ForgeRock was also formed to integrate digital identity platform to Google Cloud. This platform will help customers build and maintain cloud-ready architecture to automate multi-cloud deployments.

Besides, there’s new data security support from Semperis and Stealthbits that allows customers to manage, audit, and protect their Microsoft Active Directory-dependent applications and workloads running on Google Cloud from service outages, data breaches, and cyberattacks.

Google commented: “We are excited to recognize several partners who partnered with Google Cloud to build specialized security solutions and demonstrated high levels of success in meeting customer needs.”

Google further noted that these partnerships are based on Google Cloud’s commitment to providing customers with high levels of data security and privacy.
