By | May 21, 2020

Recent report from major tech news sources disclose that, Google lands Defense Department deal to fight cyber threats in 2020.

The contract was landed by Google Cloud with the Defense Department  to detect and respond to cyber threats.

The deal with the Defense Innovation Unit is in the “seven figures,” as confirmed by Google on Wednesday after Axios first reported the contract.

The tech behemoth said the cloud “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.”

“Google Cloud is a pioneer in ‘zero trust’ security and in deploying innovative approaches to protecting and securing networks worldwide,” Mike Daniels, vice president of global public sector for Google Cloud, said in a statement.

Google said the multi-cloud solution will be built on Anthos and will allow the DIU to operate web services across Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

It will be managed by the Google Cloud Console.

“Multi-cloud is the future,” Daniels told Axios. “This is now coming to the federal government as well.”

The deal follows the Defense Department last October awarding a $10 billion cloud computing contract to Microsoft for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure project, which is being contested in court by Amazon.
