Identity and Security

Cloud Identity, Cloud IAM, Security Command Center

Security must be central and baked-in to all practices within an organisation, from software engineering to end-user behaviours on their devices.

One of the advantages of Google Cloud technologies is that they have been built for the cloud and so have none of the issues inherent in other technologies that have been migrated to the cloud. This is clearly evident in the robust approach to security.
Actionable insights are critical to security and Kasna will help you to ensure that you protect user identities and help meet your policy, regulatory, and business objectives with security solutions from Google Cloud.
