The two companies are teaming up to provide better cybersecurity solutions for enterprises. The partnership will combine Micro Focus' security expertise with Google Cloud's leading technologies. Together, they will help organizations defend against today's most sophisticated threats. The collaboration will also enable customers to adopt cloud-native security solutions more easily. This is a big win for enterprises looking to move to the cloud but wants to ensure their data is secure.
By integrating Voltage and Google BigQuery, CyberRes Voltage customers will be enabled to protect their data while in use, in motion, and at rest. The remote functions feature will also enable customers of Google Cloud BigQuery to take advantage of Voltage's privacy-enabling features. Voltage's format-preserving encryption, tokenization, and hashing services can be used within BigQuery with Google BigQuery's native security to meet strict privacy compliance standards. In addition, due to Voltage'sonsistent data protection and cloud-agnostic, customers can use regulated data securely to perform analytics across hybrid clouds.
Google Cloud's new BigQuery is made for highly scalable, rapid, multi-cloud data warehouses, so customers can securely take in current and predictive analytics and rapidly make decisions. This partnership is Voltage SecureData's extension of its well-established analytics data lakes, warehouses, and databases.
"Emerging threats and evolving technology needs are at the forefront of challenges in cyber security. By making its Voltage SecureData solution available to Google Cloud customers from within their BigQuery data warehouse, CyberRes is enabling customers with the technologies needed to protect their sensitive data while addressing and adhering to current data privacy regulations," Said Ritika Suri, Director of Technology Partnerships, Google Cloud.
CyberRes Voltage helps organizations enable privacy and decrease risk by design by offering continuous data discovery, insight, and protection services.
