Google's security team has been busy.

The cloud provider debuted a broad range of services, including Cloud Armor protection against distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, as well as better controls for cloud security admins, for both Google Cloud Platform and G Suite.

Cloud Armor uses the technologies and infrastructure with which Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) protects Search, Gmail and YouTube to provide DDoS defenses to its Google Cloud Platform customers. Cloud Security Command Center provides a control panel to give users visibility into cloud assets across Google Cloud Platform, and how vulnerable those assets might be to attack. And Google also provided better controls for the perimeters of Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) services from Google.

You're invited to attend Light Reading’s Big Communications Event  -- the one event that delivers fresh perspective on the rapid transformation of the telecom industry and the road ahead. We'll see you May 14-16 in Austin -- communications service providers get in free!

G Suite users get enhanced anti-phishing protection, mobile device management for both Android and iOS and improvements to the security center for G Suite, which is a control panel for G Suite security.
