Overall Satisfaction with Google Cloud Key Management

Google Cloud's platform has been essential for our organization and is implemented in our core systems. It serves various purposes and we are using many of Google Cloud platform's services for our security and operations. Google Cloud Key Management is solving a crucial problem of our organization which is managing the client's data and encryption keys. With the help of the service [we] are able to manage, create and update with very little handling and easy integration. The security keys are spread over multiple branches and are very secure thanks to Google Cloud.
  • Option for Customer-Managed Encryption keys for Cloud which very [few] providers do.
  • Option to enhance security via Hardware Security Modules.
  • Easy control panel and CLI.
  • Unified commands to approve or deny key requests.
  • They removed the option for RSA128 bit security so yeah if it matters it a bummer.
  • Pipelines are limited and very [few] for the amount you pay.
  • General usability and Rapid CI/CD.
  • There is no Return of investment in our operations as we use it for KMS.
  • The only ROI is that we have a piece of mind while our data is handled by Google.
  • Our main objective is being fulfilled and the staff as well as customer are happy.
  • Value for money.
The UI / UX, first of all, is night and day difference. The main attraction after the services were this: It's user friendly. It welcomes new users and properly guides them on what to do and what you can expect. Honestly, I had a very bad experience with Microsoft Azure in 2018, so I think the Google Cloud Key Management service is best for me for now and I may give the new Azure a try later.

Use for most types of cloud SQL services. Excellent modern-day encryption technologies.
If a customer wants to manage their keys then Google Cloud Platform is well suited for those people if it matters. Able to divide workloads and pipelines. Customer managed encryption keys support for Data fusion, Data Proc, Cloud SQL, and GKE. We use Cloud EKM: key use operations $0.03 per 10,000 operations for our day to day operations.
