Pan-African technology group Liquid C2 and Google Cloud in Africa have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a strategic partnership that will further enhance Liquid C2’s tailor-made cloud and cybersecurity offerings.

Liquid C2’s rapid growth and strong regional presence position it as an ideal partner for Google Cloud, which continues to invest in expanding its presence in Africa’s cloud and security solutions market, says Liquid C2 CEO Oswald Jumira.

“Our partnership with Google will enable our enterprise, public and small and medium-sized enterprise customers to harness the power of Google Cloud to enhance their data analytics and security postures and have access to the latest AI-driven tools,” he says.

Google Cloud Strategic Pursuits VP Umesh Vemuri says that the partnership with Liquid C2 will build on Google for Africa’s aim to invest $1-billion in the region.

“This strategic partnership aims to accelerate the digital enablement of businesses and governments in Africa with Google Cloud’s leading data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions, communication and collaboration apps, generative AI and security solutions.”

The partnership focuses on three primary solution areas, such as assisting customers in integrating and leveraging their data effectively through analytics and AI, including breaking down data silos and harnessing the full potential of their data.

According to the partners, outlining the MoU in a joint statement, the application of the latest AI technologies is a key component in driving innovation, underpinned by a robust technology infrastructure.

The partnership also aims to ensure that customers are provided with the cybersecurity expertise and solutions needed to protect data and assets, extending to wherever their operations are located and enabling customers to use the same security tools and practices that Google uses, including Chronicle and Mandiant solutions.
