Google on Wednesday announced a bevy of new security features for both the Google Cloud Platform and G Suite that Google said aim give businesses more control over their security environment. On the Google Cloud Platform side, the tech giant unveiled VPC Service Controls. Currently in alpha, the controls function like a firewall for API-based services on GCP, preventing data exfiltration in the event of a breach. "Imagine constructing an invisible border around everything in an app that prevents its data from escaping, and having the power to set up, reconfigure and tear down these virtual perimeters at will," said Google's VP for security and privacy Gerhard Eschelbeck, in a blog post. Google also is launching its Cloud Security Command Center tool that the company says gives enterprises deeper insights into the health of their data security across Google Cloud services.
