Valtix vs. GCP Network Security
GCP FIREWALL MISSES
ON ENTERPRISE NEEDS
When it comes to cloud network security, cloud specific does NOT mean simple, pre-integrated, or advanced. GCP network security (GCP WAF, GCP Firewall, GCP Cloud IDS, etc.) provides a single-cloud solution that requires significant integration work and fails to meet enterprise security needs.
GCP Network Security Lacks
Advanced Capabilities, Fragments Multi-Cloud
Like other CSPs, GCP only provides a number of basic building blocks. GCP Firewall is like a security group – with only foundational firewall features. No content inspection or prevention, port and IP based egress control, and weak segmentation that doesn’t meet enterprise needs.
When it comes to network security, GCP requires multiple services to meet enterprise needs (WAF, Firewall, IDS). To integrate these services as a holistic solution means up-front effort and ongoing maintenance that falls completely on your shoulders.
With 90%+ of enterprises using more than one public cloud, building a security stack just for GCP makes little sense – and the cloud providers never provide best-in-class. Invest strategically in platforms that enable your organization’s journey to diversify supplier risk and serve the needs of the business.
