If you’re building applications or deploying infrastructure in the cloud, you need a central place to help understand your security posture, put it in a business context, and act on changes. In March, we announced Cloud Security Command Center in alpha, becoming the first major cloud provider to offer organization-level visibility into assets, vulnerabilities, and threats. Starting today, this security service is available to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers in beta.
This beta release comes with a number of new features, including:Expanded coverage across GCP services including Cloud Datastore, Cloud DNS, Cloud Load Balancing, Cloud Spanner, Container Registry, Kubernetes Engine, and Virtual Private Cloud 13 IAM roles added for fine grained access control across Cloud SCC New examples of how to generate notifications when changes occur, or to trigger Cloud Functions from a Cloud SCC query Ability to view and search for new, deleted, and total assets over a specified time period Expanded client libraries including Java, Node, and Go Expanded capabilities to manage asset discovery Self-serve onboarding via GCP Marketplace Self-serve partner security sources, such asCavirin, Chef, and Redlock, via GCP Marketplace
Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC) provides security teams with insight into infrastructure, configuration, application and data risk so that you can quickly address vulnerabilities, mitigate threats to your cloud resources and evaluate your overall security posture. With Cloud SCC, you can view and monitor an inventory of your cloud assets, be alerted to security anomalies, scan cloud storage to discover where you are storing sensitive data, detect common web vulnerabilities, and review access rights to your critical resources, all from a single, centralized data platform and dashboard.
