STEALTHbits to support Active Directory Security with Google Cloud

STEALTHbits Technologies, a renowned cybersecurity software company that focuses on protection of organization's sensitive data and to prevent attackers to steal data, has reportedly announced support for Google Managed Service for Microsoft Active Directory as it has joined Partner Advantage program of Google Cloud.
Managed Service of Google for Microsoft AD is the most hardened, highly available Google Cloud service which runs on actual Microsoft AD thus enables the consumers to manage automate AD server maintenance, security configurations, cloud-based AD-dependent workloads and connect on-premises Active Directory domains to the cloud.
STEALTHbits Technologies had seen an opportunity to continue its co-innovation activities with Google Cloud and to provide security approach that is consistent across on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments.
Rod Simmons, VP of Product Strategy for AD, STEALTHbits, reportedly stated that the company is working to secure the credentials and data, considered the most valuable targets of every organization. Simmons further added that the customers could achieve the security and visibility they require with company's innovative, responsive and flexible AD security solutions by operating AD in a purely cloud-based, on-prem, or a hybrid environment.
Manvinder Singh, Director, IaaS and PaaS Partnerships, Google Cloud, reportedly stated that the customers are launching AD on Google Cloud and across hybrid as well as multi-cloud environments. While doing so they need the topmost levels of security at each point. The company is thrilled to team-up with STEALTHbits to help customers achieve this security.
Leveraging SbPAM (STEALTHbits Privileged Activity Manager) and StealthAUDIT, the customers can obtain critical potentialities around reporting, governance, auditing and access management for their Google Managed AD environment.
Martin Cannard, VP, Product Strategy at STEALTHbits Technologies, reportedly stated that the company's JIT (just-in-time) access solution, SbPAM, now focuses on the privileged action the user wishes to perform rather than privileged accounts.
Cannard further added that using STEALTHbits Privileged Activity Manager with their ZSP (zero standing privileges) approach, organizations could reduce their overall threat surface and mitigate the problem by eliminating administrative privileges when not active and removing the vast majority of privileged accounts. SbPAM gives enough privilege, irrespective of whether the environment is hosted on Google's Managed Service for AD or on-prem.
