A wave of cloud news includes new tools for identity and access management and policies for stronger controls on cloud resources.
Google this week announced tools and updates related to cloud security and identity access management (IAM), most of which aim to make identity management simpler and more secure.
“How do we rethink security? How do we rethink identity in this cloud-based world?” asked Karthik Lakshminarayanan, director of product management, in a press briefing. Google’s latest updates build on Cloud Identity, which it released in March, and context-aware access announced in July.
