Google Cloud resources can now be protected by Microsoft Defender for Cloud
Microsoft announced that Microsoft Defender for Cloud, formerly known as Azure Security Center and Azure Defender, now also comes with native protection for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environments, providing security recommendations and threat detection across clouds.
Defender for Cloud's GCP support comes with out-of-the-box suggestions that make it simple to configure GCP environments following security standards such as Center for Internet Security benchmarks, protection for critical workloads running on GCP, and others.
Gilad Elyashar, Microsoft Partner Group Program Manager, said, “Today we're excited to announce that Microsoft Defender for Cloud now supports Google Cloud Platform with its native CSPM and CWP capabilities, without any dependencies on Google 1st party tools. The support for GCP comes with a simplified onboarding experience, more than 80 out-of-the-box recommendations to harden your environment, and more.”
Last year, Microsoft also announced native multi-cloud CSPM support for AWS during the Ignite 2021 conference, with easy onboarding by connecting the AWS master account.
Vasu Jakkal, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity, said, “With GCP support, Microsoft is now the only cloud provider with native multicloud protection for the industry’s top three platforms – Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) (announced at Ignite last year), and now GCP.”
Defender for Cloud is a security solution that monitors cloud services for threats, makes recommendations to harden security posture, and detects and warns of vulnerabilities in protected multi-cloud and hybrid environments.
