Organizations large and small are realizing that digital transformation and the changing threat landscape require a grounds up effort to transform security. At Google Cloud, we continue to invest in our vision of invisible security where advanced capabilities are engineered into our platforms, operations are simplified, and stronger security outcomes can be achieved. 

We made five major security announcements yesterday at Google Cloud Next

Today at Next ‘22, we’re introducing additional new security products, partnerships, and solutions across security analytics, anti-fraud measures, device security, Zero Trust, and open source software security to help our customers around the world address their most pressing security challenges.

  1. Our Assured Open Source Software service, which we announced earlier this year, is now available in Preview. Assured OSS enables enterprise and public sector users of open source software to easily incorporate the same trusted OSS packages that Google uses into their own developer workflows. You can sign up for the Preview of Assured OSS here.

  2. Security teams must continually measure and manage risk in their cloud environments. Earlier this year we acquired Foreseeti, a startup focused on attack simulation and risk quantification. We’re excited to announce that the integration of Foreseeti’s groundbreaking technology, which can help teams understand their exposure and prioritize contextualized vulnerability findings, will be coming to Security Command Center in Preview in Q4. Security Command Center will use Forseeti’s advanced attack path simulations to help you apply targeted remediations before attackers can take advantage of high-risk vulnerabilities.

  3. To help organizations better manage risks in their online channels, reCAPTCHA Enterprise and Signifyd will partner to bring to market a joint anti-fraud and abuse solution. This solution will combine the behavioral analysis capabilities of reCAPTCHA Enterprise with the anti-fraud capabilities of Signifyd to help enterprises reduce abuse, account takeovers, and payment fraud. 

  4. We continue to invest in new initiatives with our BeyondCorp Alliance partners. Palo Alto Networks customers can now pair Prisma Access with BeyondCorp Enterprise Essentials to help secure private and SaaS app access while mitigating internet threats across managed and unmanaged devices with a secure enterprise browsing experience. 

  5. We now package best practices and implementation experience for our customers in Zero Trust Advisory solutions. Our Cybersecurity Action Team and select partners can help guide you through the Zero Trust journey with exploratory workshops, architecture reviews, customized recommendations, and implementation support. 

  6. Google Cloud Armor, which was instrumental in stopping the largest Layer 7 DDoS attack to date, was named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q3 2022. This is our debut in the WAF Wave, and it's encouraging to see the recognition for the product in this market segment.

  7. Google Workspace has received several security updates and advances. They bring data loss prevention (DLP) to Google Chat to help prevent sensitive information leaks, new Trust rules for Google Drive for more granular control of internal and external sharing, and Client-side encryption (CSE) in Gmail and Google Calendar to help address a broad range of data sovereignty and compliance requirements. You can learn more in our Workspace blog.
