Microsoft has announced that their defender for cloud protection is now available for Google Cloud Platform environments as well. Threat detection and security warnings are ensured across all clouds because of this. Because many firms use a hybrid cloud solution, this benefits most consumers. Defender for Cloud is a Microsoft security product that discovers and alerts vulnerabilities in protected multi-cloud and hybrid settings monitor cloud services for threats and offer recommendations to improve security.

However, the group’s ability to support cloud solutions has been limited thus far. Another amazing partner is on the way in the form of the Google Cloud Platform or GCP for short. Microsoft revealed native multi-cloud compatibility for Amazon AWS at the Ignite 2021 conference just a few weeks ago.

Microsoft Partner Group Program Manager Gilad Elyashar revealed that Microsoft Defender for Cloud now supports Google Cloud Platform natively with CSPM and CWP capabilities, eliminating the need for Google 1st party tools.

With the addition of AWS and GCP support, businesses can now use Defender for Cloud to get a quick overview of the security health of their multi-cloud environment using Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), all from one place in the Defender for Cloud portal. Microsoft is now the only cloud provider that offers native multi-cloud protection for the industry’s top three platforms, thanks to GCP support.
