248

Google Security Summit witnessed the release of a new set of features that should protect the data and applications being stored and accessed from the cloud. The newly developed and integrated features into Google Cloud include innovative intrusion detection system, multiple integrations, autonomic security operations stack, and extension of its native Risk Protection Program.

The Alphabet Inc’s subsidiary states that the solutions were framed out with a larger vision for “invisible security” that is expected by the users of the cloud.

What’s big about the newly integrated security features announcement is that Google’s Cloud Native Security Analytics platform ‘Chronicle’ will work in sync with other analytical platforms such as Looker and BigQuery, a new product that came out of another cloud product Datastream.

Therefore, those using Chronicle will be able to gain more meaningful insights about reporting, compliance, data exploration, visual security workflow, security driven data science and much more.

In the end, the plan is to simplify things and not to complicate while using Chronicle. So, that any person having the basic cloud knowledge can make use of the solution that has been customized with dashboards based on the parameters that depend upon the requirements figured out in corporate environments.

Google Cloud IDS was also unveiled by the web search giant that solely depends on the Palo Alto Networks threat detection technology that helps detect malware, spyware, command-and-control software attacks, and other network based threats hitting the cloud platform.

Perhaps Google wants the companies across the world to immerse in cloud more and more and so is offering security solutions that not only protect the cloud environment, but can also induce trust into the customers that their applications and data will be cent percent safe from all variants of cyber threats.
