“Knowing that we don’t have to worry about DDoS attacks against our API and gateway servers gives us the peace of mind to focus on improving our product.”

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.
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.
“The reason we use Cloudflare is because the security features are excellent, the CDN (Content Delivery Network) is high performing, and it’s really convenient that these solutions are packaged together. It makes managing everything easy, and allows us to focus on our core business.”

Cloudflare’s network capacity is 23x bigger than the largest DDoS attack ever recorded. With 172 Tbps of capacity, it can handle any modern distributed attack, including those targeting layers 3, 4, and 7, as well as DNS infrastructure.
Cloudflare offers unmetered mitigation of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks for Google Cloud hosted web applications and APIs, regardless of the size of attack, with no additional costs, caps, or overages.
Cloudflare prevents breaches of sensitive customer data on Google Cloud hosted Internet applications and APIs through a variety of security services, including SSL/TLS 1.3, DNSSEC, web application firewall (WAF), rate limiting, and IP reputation database.
