New York, US – July 30, 2021 – Cloudreach, the leading multi-cloud services company, has received the 2020 Google Cloud Specialization Partner of the Year for Security award. This marks the third consecutive year that Cloudreach won the award for its achievements in the Google Cloud ecosystem.

During a year of accelerated cloud migration and modernization, Cloudreach is being recognized for its work with enterprises along with federal, state, and local government organizations.

“Rapid modernization is a core focus of many businesses this year, and as a result, application and data security has never been more important,” says Chris Williams, Head of Software at Cloudreach. “We are immensely proud to receive this award for a third year running as a testament to our innovation, growth and security focus with Google Cloud.”

Carolee Gearhart, Vice President, Worldwide Channel Sales at Google Cloud, said: “Google Cloud Specializations recognize partner excellence and proven customer success in a particular product area or industry. Based on proven, repeatable customer success and strong technical capabilities, we’re delighted to recognize Cloudreach as the Specialization Partner of the Year for Security.”

Cloudreach created a next-generation, massive-scale Event Threat Detection Platform hosted on Google Cloud for a major U.S. city. The solution followed a cloud-first strategy using Google Cloud Platform (GCP), infrastructure as code, and a BeyondCorp security model that builds upon years of designing zero-trust networking. Cloudreach created a Security Event and Information Management (SIEM) data pipeline that can log and aggregate event streams from over 400,000 devices. Over time, the goal is for the system to leverage AI capabilities to detect and respond to cybersecurity threats in real-time for the city’s systems.

Over the years, Cloudreach has spearheaded numerous advancements in cloud security on Google Cloud’s platform in order to best facilitate rapid and secure adoption of the platform, including building the Minimum Viable Cloud for Financial Services, on behalf of PSO, and helping to author the Cloud Security Engineer Certification. Cloudreach have also just co-authored a Security Playbook for Private Equity, in partnership with Google Cloud.
