Google Cloud Security Summit was on July 20. Did you have time to attend it? If not, you can watch the video on demand.
The big announcement at the event was a new service called Google IDS (Intrusion Detection Service), which requires security operation skills to set up and maintain.
IDS is a threat detection analyzer that works by mirroring packets of network traffic both within and within a VPC. Such a service is already available by enabling packet mirroring on a third-party service, such as that provided by ExtraHop, Cisco, Netscout or Check Point.
If we compare the diagram in the image above with the network security diagram in Google Cloud before the introduction of IDS (image below) we can identify the differences, right?
Let me know your opinion on this. Is there anything else you liked about the Security Summit?
