Breakthrough in confidentiality
Confidential VMs are a breakthrough technology that allow customers to encrypt their most sensitive data in the cloud while it’s being processed.
Simple for everyone
Google Cloud’s approach allows customers to encrypt data in use without making any code changes to their applications or having to compromise on performance.
Enabling new possibilities
Confidential Computing can unlock scenarios which previously have not been possible. Organizations will be able to collaborate, all while preserving the confidentiality of their data.

|Real-time encryption in use||Google Cloud customers can encrypt data in use, taking advantage of security technology offered by modern CPUs (e.g., secure encrypted virtualization supported by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ CPUs) together with confidential computing cloud services. Customers can be confident that their data will stay private and encrypted even while being processed.|
|Lift and shift confidentiality||Our goal is to make Confidential Computing easy. The transition to Confidential VMs is seamless—all workloads you run today, new and existing, can run as a Confidential VM. You do not need to make any code changes to your applications to use Confidential VMs. One checkbox—it’s that simple.|
|Detection of advanced persistent attacks||Confidential Computing builds on the protections Shielded VMs offer against rootkit and bootkits. This helps ensure the integrity of the operating system you choose to run in your Confidential VM.|
|Enable innovation||Confidential Computing can unlock computing scenarios that have previously not been possible. Organizations will now be able collaborate on research in the cloud, all while preserving confidentiality.|
|High performance||Confidential VMs offer similar performance to standard N2D VMs. Explore tech docs and whitepapers.|
