What is Google Cloud IAM
What is Google Cloud IAM? Google Cloud IAM is Google’s identity management solution for Google Cloud Platform. It enables Google administrators to authorize who can access specific Google resources, namely those in their Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform. Think of Google Cloud IAM as similar to AWS IAM – it is a web based access management console for who can access the web-based consoles for GCP and AWS, respectively.
In doing so, organizations leveraging Google Cloud IAM can utilize Google Cloud Identities which ties to a number of services like G Suite, GCP, and other Google services. Google’s concept with Cloud IAM is to have centralized control and visibility over their Google Cloud Platform resources and who can provision, modify, and deprovision access to GCP resources on an individual basis.
