ATT NetBond for Cloud to connect in a very secure way to Google
"We're committed to helping businesses transform through our
edge-to-edge capabilities. This collaboration with Google Cloud
gives businesses access to a full suite of productivity tools
and a highly secure, private network connection to the Google
Cloud Platform," said Roman Pacewicz, chief product officer,
AT&T Business. "Together, Google Cloud and AT&T are
helping businesses streamline productivity and connectivity in
a simple, efficient way."
The partnership also male G suite, Google’s
cloud-based productivity suite for business including Gmail,
Docs and Drive available through ATT Collaborate, the hosted
voice and collaboration business solution.

that are located far away from a Google Cloud region or point
of presence to connect at up to 10Gbps.

solutions, and our work to bring Google Cloud's portfolio of
products, services and tools to every layer of its customers'
business helps serve this mission," said Paul Ferrand,
