cloud: GCP 4 DOD

Google's cloud division lands deal with the Department of Defense

"The new contract, which is through the DoD’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), will be focused on identifying cyber threats, according to the release. Google said the system “will provide real-time network monitoring, access control, and full audit trails, enabling DIU to maintain its strict cloud security posture without compromising speed and reliability.”

The system, which will be centrally managed from Google’s console, will allow the DIU to run web services and applications across competing cloud services like those offered by Amazon and Microsoft."
