A Minute in the Life of Google’s Security Infrastructure
No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google.
Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every type of attack, bad software, and bad actors – multiple times a day – and we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them.
Defending the world’s largest network against persistent and constantly evolving cyber threats has driven Google to architect, automate, and develop advanced tools to help keep us ahead. This report outlines how we’ve built and evolved our defenses so you can apply the same architectural decisions to your own business.
