Securing data in transit

Data is vulnerable to unauthorized access as it travels across the Internet or within networks.

The Google Front End (GFE) servers mentioned previously support strong encryption protocols such as TLS to secure the connections between customer devices and Google's web services and APIs. Cloud customers can take advantage of this encryption for their services running on Google Cloud Platform by using the Google Cloud Load Balancer. The Cloud Platform also offers customers additional transport encryption options, including Google Cloud VPN for establishing IPSec virtual private networks.
