Seamless Integration with Cloud Security Command Center

Google Cloud’s Cloud Security Command Center (CSCC) is the canonical security and data risk database for Google Cloud Platform.

CSCC Unifies: Assets, resources, policies, IAM policies, findings, security and risk specific annotations all in one place, enabling security and data risk insights, management and recommendations.

Cloudflare is one of the first security providers incorporated into CSCC. Though the CSCC dashboard, insights into top threats, threat types, and firewall events from Cloudflare are displayed alongside other security application metrics, for a holistic view into web application security posture.

Google Cloud Security Command Center integration is available for Cloudflare customers with the Enterprise plan. Before enabling Cloudflare with CSCC, you'll need to request access.

Google Cloud CDN Interconnect Program

Cloudflare customers with Internet properties hosted in Google Cloud Platform can benefit from reductions in bandwidth and up to 75% savings on egress pricing, while establishing faster connections between Cloudflare and Google Cloud origin server(s). While Cloudflare’s CDN already ensures minimal latency by caching content as close to your users as possible, Google Cloud CDN Interconnect optimizes connectivity between Google’s network and Cloudflare connection used for cache misses.

Cloudflare’s additional performance services include Argo Smart Routing, load balancing with geo-steeringing, and website optimizations, which improve web and mobile experiences, while ensuring availability of Google Cloud hosted website and applications.
