Google Cloud Firewall
Fully distributed, cloud-native, firewall service delivers granular control, including micro-segmentation without network re-architecting.
Now introducing new tiers: Cloud Firewall Essentials and Cloud Firewall Standard.
Protect your Google Cloud resources with a global and flexible firewall service
Distributed, cloud-native firewall service
Cloud Firewall’s fully distributed, stateful inspection firewall engine is built natively into our software defined networking fabric, and enforced at each workload.
Simplified configuration and deployment
Network firewall policies are global by default, and apply to all regions. Define policies at the organization, folder, and project levels with hierarchical firewall policies.
Granular control and micro-segmentation
Leverage IAM-governed tags to define granular control for both north-south and east-west traffic, down to a single VM, across VPCs and organizations.
Expanded policy capabilities for granular protection at scale
Cloud Firewall tiers
Cloud Firewall is offered in two tiers: Cloud Firewall Essentials and Cloud Firewall Standard. Cloud Firewall Standard offers expanded policies via objects for firewall rules that simplify configuration and micro-segmentation. Cloud Firewall Essentials is the foundational tier that includes Network Firewall Policies, IAM-governed Tags, and more
Network firewall policies and hierarchical firewall policies
Network firewall policies let you group multiple firewall rules, apply batch updates, and control access to these rules with Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles. Hierarchical Firewall Policies can be applied at the organization and folder level, and Global and Regional Network Firewall Policies can be applied at the VPC level.

Cloud Firewall pricing
Pricing details for Cloud Firewall tiers.
Global and regional network firewall policies
Control traffic to and from your cloud workloads.
Hierarchical firewall policies
Create granular firewall policies at the organization and folder level.
Understand and view the usage of your VPC firewall rules within the Network Intelligence Center.
Simultaneously achieve scalability, micro-segmentation, and fine-grain control, using workload identity contexts, independent of IP addresses.
Google Cloud Threat Intelligence
Block traffic based on several categories of threat intelligence data, like known malicious IPs and domains. Allow public IPs that your service uses.
Domain Name (FQDN) objects
Enable advanced protection with FQDN objects, which allow for dynamic policies that adjust even as the underlying IP addresses change.
Simplify the process of managing traffic to designated countries without the need to specify individual IP addresses.
