Google has completed its $5.4 billion acquisition of cybersecurity firm Mandiant to boost the security of its cloud services.

"Combining Google Cloud's existing security portfolio with Mandiant's leading cyberthreat intelligence will allow us to deliver a security operations suite to help enterprises globally stay protected at every stage of the security lifecycle," Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian wrote in a Sept. 12 company blog post.

Google Cloud is adding Mandiant's threat intelligence, attack surface management and security validation features. Google provides cloud services to a variety of health systems.

"With the scale of Google's data processing, novel analytics approaches with [artificial intelligence] and machine learning, and a focus on eliminating entire classes of threats, Google Cloud and Mandiant will help organizations reinvent security to meet the requirements of our rapidly changing world," Mr. Kurian wrote.
