Google Cloud adds new Network Security features

Google cloud seems to have followed the lines of AWS for Network Security as it has recently introduced some innovative features that help users, data and applications against the most sophisticated cyber threats prevailing in the cyber landscape.

Cloud Armor Adaptive Protection- This tool is enriched with machine leaning capabilities that help organizations against denial of service attacks aka DDoS. Thus, with the help of security signals, Cloud Armor will help Google Cloud users guard their web applications and services from much of the sophisticated cyber attacks.

Insights to Firewall- As firewall helps in shielding the IT Infrastructure against cyber attacks, GCP has added an insights feature to this capability with a Network Intelligence Center Module. The module helps in pre-analyzing any configuration errors and usage liabilities helping those managing the Google Cloud Console to track down and address cyber attacks.

Helps implement hierarchical firewall policies- With this privilege, network admins will have the choice of implementing consistent firewall rules help establish hierarchical firewalls at organization and folder levels.

Packet Mirroring- GCP announced a new Packet Mirroring feature in its network security features that allows users to mirror their network traffic from Virtual Private Clouds to 3rd party inspection services. Therefore, a clear visibility to the threats can be obtained for workloads running on Compute Engine and Kubernetes Engine.

Google Cloud Platform’s(GCP) latest network security capabilities will have some innovative features that even the AWS Network Firewall Managed Security Service is missing.
