WATCH: Google Cloud CEO Stands Tough On Data Privacy – And More Top Headlines From Next 19
Google Cloud unveils a host of security and analytics services in a push to win over more enterprises.
The conversation turned to security, privacy and AI on the second day of Google Cloud Next, Google Cloud’s sold out conference in San Francisco.
The cloud provider made 30 security announcements on Wednesday, including updates to the Google Cloud Security Command Center, a tool that lets enterprises organize and visualize all threats. Google added a new tool called Security Health Analytics to the platform, which automatically scans the infrastructure for problems.
It all comes as Google pushes to win over more enterprise customers and climb the ladder in the cloud market. Google currently holds the third largest market share, behind Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. On Wednesday, Kurian confronted what experts say is a top challenge for the company: data privacy.
“Your data is your data, no one else's. Your AI models are your AI models, no one else's. No one at Google will access you data without your permission," said Google Cloud CEO, Thomas Kurian.
Google separates itself from Azure and AWS with its powerful analytics capabilities. New announcements on Wednesday included the addition of Google’s Voice Assistant to G Suite and the launch of Cloud Data Fusion, a platform that makes it easier to move data to Google Cloud and analyze it for insights.
