Google Cloud obtains Secure Cloud Framework Agreement from Canada

Google Cloud has reportedly acquired a Secure Cloud Framework Agreement from the federal government of Canada. The agreement will allow Google Cloud to go for direct sale of collaboration technologies and innovative cloud platform to federal agencies, supporting their digital transformation and better serving their constituents and communities.

According to Mike Daniels, the Vice President of Global Public Sector at Google Cloud, obtaining a framework agreement for secure cloud services conveys that the company can now back initiatives that need high data protection levels for government workloads. He has further stated that this new agreement is a representation of the company’s consistent investment and support for clients in the public sector in Canada. The announcement of Google Cloud’s second data center region in Toronto is another instance of momentum that is being witnessed as government agencies shift to the cloud, added Daniels.

For the uninitiated, Google Cloud specializes in offering leading industry solutions, infrastructure, and platform capabilities to organizations at the global level. The company provides business-grade cloud solutions that deploy Google’s cutting-edge technology, in turn helping businesses to operate in an efficient manner, adaptable to the changing clientele requirements of a foundation for the future. As per reports, clients in over 150 nations turn to Google Cloud as their trusted associate for resolving their most condemning business problems.

Given that citizens have become accustomed to digital, convenient, and easy-to-use services in their day-to-day lives, government enterprises are facing enhanced pressure for delivering similar convenience as customer experiences, often via legacy systems and under financial limitations.

Reports state that the Canadian federal government assessed Google Cloud government against all relevant usability, security, and privacy standards for the purpose of securing this framework agreement. This agreement will allow governments to secure cloud services and eventually help in closing the gap between consumer and government services, state sources.
