Cloud VPN securely connects your peer network to your Google Cloud (GCP) Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network through an IPsecVPNconnection.

Traffic traveling between the two networks is encrypted by one VPN gateway, then decrypted by the other VPN gateway. This protects your data as it travels over the internet. You can also connect two instances of Cloud VPN to each other.


To set up the OpsRamp Google integration and discover the Google service, go to Google Integration Discovery Profile and select Vpn Gateway.
