Google Cloud Customers are hereby informed that the Internet Juggernaut’s Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC) which provides deeper insights to enterprises on the health of data security across multiple Google Cloud platforms is now available to them as a beta version. Thus, with the service availability, the cloud services giant has provided an organizational visibility to the possible cyber threats and vulnerabilities.
Technically speaking, the command center was live from March this year- as a test version. The objective of the said security and risk platform was to gather data and track down potential threats before they could cause any damage.
The consolidated service platform helps users of App Engine, Cloud Storage, Cloud Data Store, and Compute Engine to get a clear understanding of changes being made to their respective environments, thus mitigating unauthorized access.
Google has announced that its new line of Cloud Security Command Center will also have additional features such as Cloud Datastore, Cloud DNS, Cloud Load Balancing, Cloud Spanner, Container Registry, Kubernetes Engine, and Virtual Private Cloud. Furthermore, 13 new identity access management roles are also available with the new score.
“With Cloud SCC, users can track down and view an inventory of cloud assets, receive alerts when security irregularities occur, and scan cloud storage assets to detect common web vulnerabilities while storing data”, said Andy Chang, Product Manager, Google.
He added that the service has the ability to share insights on the vulnerabilities displayed by cloud storage buckets and while unauthorized persons access virtual machines having public addresses.
The highlight of the latest beta version of Cloud SSC is that it can integrate with other security services like Google’s Data Loss Prevention API, Cloud Security Scanner Tools, Forseti, and 3rd party security offerings such as Cloudflare Inc, Redlock Inc, and Cavirin Systems Inc.
