As an organization, you want to be able to control how your users access Google’s products and other services online. Millions of G Suite customers already rely on Google Cloud’s identity services to secure their online identities, perform single sign on and enforce multi-factor authentication. We’re excited to announce that the same identity management features used for years in G Suite will be made available for free to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers to manage their developers online with Cloud Identity.
Starting today, we’re rolling out native support for Cloud Identity right into GCP. Cloud Identity makes it easy to provision and manage users and groups directly from the Google Admin Console. Once you sign up for Cloud Identity, you’ll also get access to the Cloud Resource Manager to administer your new GCP organization. Cloud Resource Manager allows you to centrally manage all of your organization’s GCP projects and IAM roles. With Cloud Identity and Cloud Resource Manager, you now have full control over how your organization uses Google Cloud.
To start using Cloud Identity, head to the Cloud Console to find the new “Identity” section under Cloud IAM. Here you’ll be able to find the Cloud Identity sign up flow, where you’ll create your new Cloud Identity admin account and Cloud Identity organization.
