Deloitte and Google Cloud Announce Plans to Collaborate on Next-Generation Security Solutions
As organizations move more of their businesses to the cloud, better control over data and activities in the cloud, as well as preventing privilege misuse, becomes critically important. Building on their existing global alliance, Deloitte and Google Cloud announced that together they will leverage the strength of their portfolios in cyber and cloud solutions to provide customers with end-to-end secure cloud transformation services and solutions in support of their digital transformation journeys and to better combat cyber threats.
