SADA CEO: Google-Mandiant To Best AWS, Microsoft In Security
‘This Mandiant acquisition is the largest acquisition [Google Cloud CEO] Thomas Kurian’s ever made. It’s a stake in the ground about the most important part of this cloud journey for most organizations, which is security first,’ says SADA CEO Tony Safoian in an interview with CRN.
How big of a security market impact will the new Google Cloud-Mandiant have?
If you think about larger Google, it has one of the biggest threat vectors in the world for every nation, state and bad actor to try to penetrate any part of the Google organization. You can argue that Google is the biggest target in the world.
So bringing that expertise married with now the Mandiant acquisition, and making it now as a service accessible to all of our joint customers—it’s going to be a very important part of someone’s digital transformation strategy.
As people deploy new infrastructures, as you can imagine, security is a must have. And Google just made a really bold move here by kind of putting a stake in the ground that they’re going to be the best in the world at this.
I think it’s the biggest ever acquisition for Google Cloud, certainly one of the biggest for Google.
We’ve always said that one of the superpowers of Google Cloud as an organization is, regardless of what the rest of your infrastructure looks like and the rest of your strategy looks like, security has always been in the forefront for Google Cloud as a differentiator.
