Understanding CloudZone’s Landing Zone and its 4 main business benefits
When companies want to set up a multi-project environment, they often lack the time or skills to implement and maintain a security and network configuration of multiple projects and services. That’s where CloudZone’s Landing Zone for Google Cloud comes in – offering an expert understanding of Google Cloud services.
Let’s unpack what Landing Zone is, and how it could benefit your business.
What is the Landing Zone?
A Landing Zone is a modular and scalable configuration that enables organizations to adopt Google Cloud Platform for their business needs. Often, a landing zone is a prerequisite to deploying enterprise workloads in a Cloud environment. This is a starting point from which your organizations can quickly launch and deploy workloads and applications with confidence in their security and infrastructure environment.
The Landing Zone focuses on the following pillars:
- Organization Hierarchy
- Logging & Monitoring
- Identity and Access Management
- Security and Compliance
Who is it aimed to serve?
Israeli customers have, for a long time, been waiting for the launch of a local Google Cloud Datacenter – and usually have high demands when it comes to latency, security, and governance that allows them to build their workloads only in the Israel region. While Google Cloud Platform brings the Datacenter closer to the customer, CloudZone offers automation and best practices for building a secure Landing Zone and Cloud redlines for Israeli customers.
Here are 4 reasons why Landing Zone is the ideal route to the automation and setup of a secure and reliable multi-project Google Cloud Platform environment:

The Landing Zone is not an off the shelf product, but rather a live one that changes over time. In addition to the Landing Zone solution, CloudZone provides product updates to the Landing Zone. This includes customization to the changes and adoption of new Cloud services and best practices. CloudZone also offers additional layers of expertise to the Cloud journey through services like; FinOps, DevOps, MSP, and architecture review.
