Google Cloud Unveils New SOC, IDS Solutions
Google Cloud this week announced new security offerings for its customers, including Autonomic Security Operations to improve security operations centers (SOCs) and Cloud Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for network-based threat detection.
Autonomic Security Operations, the Internet giant says, represents a “stack of products, integrations, blueprints, technical content, and an accelerator program” meant to help customers leverage Chronicle and Google technology and expertise to advance their SOC.
A collection of philosophies, practices, and tools, Autonomic Security Operations should help organizations improve their resilience against cyberattacks, with an automated approach to threat management.
The solution includes products (Chronicle, Looker, and BigQuery), integrations to supported vendors (EDR, SOAR), network forensics and telemetry blueprints, content (sample dashboards, rules, and use-cases), accelerator workshops, and preferred SOC transformation and managed security service provider (MSSP) partners.
Google says it has partnered with BT to launch Autonomic Security Operations to the managed security services market and that the solution is also backed by its long-standing relationships with Cyderes and SADA Systems, among others.
Currently available in preview, Google’s new Cloud IDS is a network security product that delivers native network-based threat detection capabilities that leverage Google Cloud integration.
The product is delivered in collaboration with Palo Alto Networks and can help organizations not only gain insights into network-based threats, but also ensure their security implementations are compliant with industry policies.
An end-to-end cloud solution, Cloud IDS monitors east-west traffic along with traffic to and from the Internet, to identify anomalies and detect threats, including malware, spyware, command and control (C&C) traffic, and more. Data generated by Cloud IDS can be used to investigate and correlate threats and respond to them.
Cloud IDS currently integrates with the Splunk cloud and enterprise platforms, Exabeam’s Advanced Analytics solution, The Devo Platform, and Palo Alto Networks’ Cortex XSOAR. Integrations with Google Cloud’s Chronicle and Security Command Center will be added in the near future.
