SAN FRANCISCO – Google Next 2018 – Security and convenience are opposites in computing, but Google is looking to change that with new cloud access controls, including a hardware key for end users.
Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) is also rolling out new security tools for virtualized and containerized apps, as well as G Suite, in news announced Wednesday at its annual cloud conference.
Start with end-user access controls: The Titan Security Key, available now, is a physical key that end users carry with them, providing a second authentication factor for high-value users, such as Google Cloud admins.
Additionally, Context-Aware Access defines and enforces access policies based on a user's device, location and other attributes.
