The Pentagon’s emerging technologies office has tapped Google [GOOG] to provide a secure cloud management solution designed to detect and respond to cyber threats, the company said Wednesday.

Google Cloud said its solution will be built on its Anthos platform and will allow the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) to run the company’s security services across the major cloud computing offerings, including Microsoft’s [MSFT] Azure and Amazon Web Services [AMZN].

“Google Cloud is a pioneer in ‘zero trust’ security and in deploying innovative approaches to protecting and securing networks worldwide,” Mike Daniels, Google Cloud’s vice president for the global public sector, said in a statement. “We’re honored to partner with DIU on this critical initiative to protect its network from bad actors that pose threats to our national security.”

The value of Google Cloud’s deal with DIU was not disclosed.

The security gate is designed to provide virtual firewalls at scale, real-time network monitoring, audit trailing and application access control.

The company said the service will reduce cost by “eliminating excess hardware and servers; applications and services can now be scaled up or down in the cloud based on demand.”
