New tools and services will help make it easier for enterprises to manage security with Google products as well as in rival Amazon Web Services and in their own private clouds and applications.
“The mission here is to build the most trusted cloud,” Michael Aiello, product management director for Google Cloud, told Data Center Knowledge.
In 2018, he said, Google launched more than 70 new security products or enhancements. “Today, we’re announcing 30 new things. There’s a huge volume of stuff coming through, and we’re continuing to invest heavily here.”
For example, Google Cloud will now have context-aware access at no additional charge. In addition, some G Suite customers will have access to a beta version of this feature.
The feature was previously only available in beta on the Google Cloud Platform, he said.
Google is also working on making its products easier to set up and configure in a secure way.
