Insight from Doug Cahill, appearing on the back book cover of Google Cloud's Approach to Security:
Businesses' path to cloud adoption relies heavily on trust; CEOs and CIOs need to feel comfortable that they are gaining significant benefit from the cloud without giving up control. With these announcements, Google Cloud is continuing to provide more control and insight to customers—and commendable visibility into administrative activity within their cloud environments through Access Transparency—while offering them the peace of mind that many of the fundamental aspects of security are taken care of and constantly evolving along with the threat landscape."
At the recent Google Next ‘18 conference, Google made several significant announcements about Google Cloud and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The new GCP services and programs were a clear sign that Google is focused on meeting the needs of enterprise cloud users. Google discussed new programs and offers to support enterprise users, and the product announcements showed that hybrid cloud is an important cloud model for GCP. Companies that are using cloud computing should carefully consider the Google offerings and move beyond the perception that GCP is focused on consumer or cloud-native-only workloads.
