In this fast-paced era, enterprises are quickly migrating to the cloud, leveraging its power to drive growth. Our success stories demonstrate how cloud adoption fuels innovation and unprecedented growth across industries.
Managing the cloud can be an intimidating task. The implementation and continuous maintenance of a cloud ecosystem demands familiarity with all the services and technologies that a cloud provider offers. Though you can rely on consultants, they’re not always the most effective paths. It is beneficial to have an experienced partner that can ensure everything goes perfectly as planned. That’s where a certified Google Cloud Partner can help if you’re planning your transformation journey on Google Cloud. In this blog, we enumerate the advantages of working with a Google Cloud Partner.
Why Do You Need a Google Cloud Partner?
Integrated Third-party Security Solutions
While Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers in-built data protection features, an organization can opt for third-party data management solutions too for example. The benefit of a Google Cloud Partner is that they can leverage their robust partner ecosystem to help you strengthen your data management posture and data security in critical areas such as endpoint protection and data leakage prevention. In addition, a partner also enables you to integrate third-party apps with Cloud Audit Logs, Security Command Center Alerts, and Automated implementation of security regulations.
Incident Detection & Response
With various security and privacy measures in place, enterprises need a centralized location to analyze, identify, respond and prevent the ever-growing avalanche of cyberattacks. The Security Command Center (SCC) is an integrated feature which provides customers built-in security analytics which help evaluate their entire security posture. You can go a step further with a Google Cloud Partner. They have expertise in a variety of tools to detect and respond to security incidents such as malware, crypto-mining, unauthorized access, DDoS attacks and more. This is especially true when it comes to Google’s Autonomic Security Operation solution. A partner empowers businesses with a highly automated, agile threat management approach.
Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR)
A Google Cloud Partner offers robust, and cost-effective services that help businesses leverage the best possible solutions. These span the entire gamut of network, redundancy, scalability, security, and compliance. A partner can help you integrate Virtual Private Cloud, Google Cloud Firewalls, and Cloud Storage to build reliable DR patterns that are RTOs/RPOs compliant.
A partner allows you to provide a consistent customer experience regardless of potential risks such as hardware failure, human error, and cybercrime. With Disaster Recovery Plans (DRPs) in place, you can leverage features such as data archives, Big Query's long terms storage and Cloud SQL’s automated backup and recovery.
Interoperability and Portability
The right Google Cloud Partner helps businesses configure the best solution that spans on-premise and multiple cloud platforms, without vendor lock-in. They have a variety of tools to help customers combine distinct systems.
Google’s Anthos, a hybrid cloud management platform, allows businesses to deploy apps across a multi-cloud ecosystem without modifying the underlying code. By working with an experienced Google Cloud Partner, businesses can leverage Anthos for migrating and modernizing Virtual Machines to a preferred cloud provider in a very simplified manner.
Privacy regulations such as GDPR, PCI DSS and CCPA are focused on how data is processed, its access, and how security breaches are handled. An experienced Google Cloud Partner has a dedicated team of experts and compliance specialists to assist you in managing your privacy related risks and compliances.
By collaborating with a partner, you get someone who can navigate your unique regulatory needs by implementing integrated control and governance architecture. In the long run, this can enable you to perform audits to confirm with Google's security and compliance controls.
