San Francisco (IANS) Google Cloud has expanded its confidential virtual machines (VMs) portfolio that will provide encrypted services where users can be confident that their data is not being exposed to cloud providers or their own insiders.

Confidential Computing makes this future possible by keeping data encrypted in memory, and elsewhere outside the CPU, while it is being processed.

The company in July announced the Beta availability of Confidential VMs, the first product in its Confidential Computing portfolio.

“Confidential GKE Nodes” are the second product in Google confidential computing portfolio and will soon be available in beta, starting with the GKE 1.18 release.
