Google Cloud Security Blitz Attacks Email Phishing, Improves Visibility
March 22, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle
The latest Google cloud security blitz unleashed more than 20 updates. It’s a push to get companies to move their workloads to Google’s cloud — and off of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. The new security capabilities cover Google Cloud Platform (GCP), G Suite, and Chrome Enterprise. They include features like better visibility across cloud services and potential threats and beefed up security against email phishing attacks. Google also partnered with four additional enterprise mobility management providers (it announced a partnership with VMware AirWatch last year) in a move that allows IT admins to manage security policies across devices from a single place. The new partners are Cisco Meraki, Citrix XenMobile, IBM MaaS360, and ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus, a division of Zoho Corp.
