Monitoring Alerts in GCP by integrating Cloud Operations with Notification Channels

An integral part of ensuring applications run smoothly on the cloud is to ensure the infrastructure runs smoothly, and one way of doing this is to anticipate problems and handle them before they escalate into a system downtime. A simple and effective way of doing this is to set up effective monitoring systems. Systems that monitor the health of the infrastructure on important low-level metrics such as CPU usage, disk usage, memory usage, etc. These metrics going out of bounds can alert us to potential problems and preventive actions can be taken.

Cloud Armor - a cloud security overview

Google Cloud Armor is meant to protect against DDoS attacks in the era of cloud-based services. However, since it’s a built-in security framework with general settings, it requires adjusting rules specific to the client's needs to provide sufficient protection. The existing solutions are either a manual change in WAF rules, using external add-ons or using the native protection from Google, which includes forming Adaptive rules for threat recognition and Managed solutions if the attack blocking fails. Together, this turns Google Cloud Armor into a more efficient form of protection without unnecessary traffic loss.
