Launch understands that IT security is a top concern for any company in any industry. Launch can put top-rated security features to work for you so your company can get the most out of using Google Cloud. We make sure your cloud environment and information is secure with endpoint, anti-virus & malware protection. Forrester Research named Google Cloud a Leader in the Forrester Wave Public Cloud Platform Native Security, Q2 2018 report.
Google owns and operates one of the largest backbone networks in the world connecting our data centers with hundreds of thousands of miles of fiber optic cable. We use advanced software-defined networking and edge caching services to deliver fast, scalable, and consistent performance. When your traffic is on our network, it no longer transits the public Internet, making it less likely to be attacked, intercepted, or manipulated.
Google data centers feature a layered security model with custom-designed electronic access cards, alarms, vehicle access barriers, perimeter fencing, metal detectors, and biometrics. The data center floor features laser beam intrusion detection. Our data centers are monitored 24/7 by high-resolution interior and exterior cameras that can detect and track intruders. Only approved employees with specific roles may enter. Fewer than one percent of Googlers will ever step foot in one of our data centers.
Trusted Infrastructure. Multi-Layered Security.
Google Cloud’s infrastructure doesn’t rely on any single technology to make it secure because the stack builds security through progressive layers that deliver true defense in depth.
Operational and Device Security
Google Cloud develops infrastructure software using rigorous security practices. Google Cloud’s operations teams detect and respond to threats to the infrastructure from both insiders and external actors, 24/7/365.
Communications over the Internet to Google Cloud’s public cloud services are encrypted in transit. The network and infrastructure have multiple layers of protection to defend our customers against Denial of Service attacks.
Identities, users, and services are strongly authenticated with multiple factors. Access to sensitive data is protected by advanced tools like phishing-resistant Security Keys.
Data stored on Google Cloud’s infrastructure is automatically encrypted at rest and distributed for availability and reliability. This helps guard against unauthorized access and service interruptions.
Any application that runs on Google Cloud’s infrastructure is deployed with security in mind, where trust between services is not assumed, and multiple mechanisms are established to maintain trust. Google Cloud’s infrastructure was designed to be multi-tenant from the start.
From the physical premises to the purpose-built servers, networking equipment, and custom security chips to the low-level software stack running on every machine, Google Cloud’s entire hardware infrastructure is Google-controlled, secured, built, and hardened.
