Google introduces Security Center for G-Suite Cloud Applications


Google has introduced a new Security Center feature to protect the users of its Google Cloud Products against speculative execution vulnerabilities. The feature gives the admins of G-Suite a centralized view of the key security metrics related to their data and a way to act upon that information in a timely manner.

The internet juggernaut said that the tool will be visible within the admin console on Google Cloud Service by the end of this month and all details related to the usage and best practices will be made available for reference in PDF format.

The new Security Center offers to the admins the privilege to see security analytics, actionable insights and best practice recommendations from Google to empower them to protect their organization, data, and users”, said Chad Taylor, Product manager, G-Suite.

Taylor added that the new G-Suite will help users view key security metrics in a unified way through a single dashboard.
Administrators can take the help of the Security Center to get an insight on any suspicious activity displayed by user devices on a certain network and also keep a tab of cyber threat such as spam and malware targeting users.

For example, admins can now have a view of the users being targeted by phishing attacks or can be alerted with related info when a file with sensitive info is being uploaded to Google Drive.

Google’s Security Center will also provide security health checks to users using Google Drive, Hangouts, Calendar and Sites along with Gmail application. Also, the newly introduced tool will help in offering recommendations for secure management of mobile devices running on G-suite Apps.

In a bid to reach the expectations of Enterprise customers for scalability, reliability, and security and to stay in competition with Amazon and Microsoft, Google has introduced Security Center for G-Suite.

Hope, all the efforts of the search giant will help it reach the top position in Global Cloud Market Share.
