Continuous monitoring and assessment

Not only can you export a snapshot of your entire inventory at any point of time, you can also get real-time notifications on asset config changes through Cloud Pub/Sub. You can then initiate different operations based on the change to achieve continuous monitoring and assessment at one place.

With the export to BigQuery feature, you can easily locate assets, run analysis on your inventory, and complete compliance checks on your Google Cloud and Anthos environments.


Fully managed inventory service

Fully managed and scalable inventory service; so you don’t have to worry about the scalability and storage of your inventory data.

Export all your assets at a point of time

Export your inventory by organizations, folders, or projects to a Cloud Storage bucket or a BigQuery table, then run analysis and data processing from there.

Export asset change history

See full change history of assets, so you can easily answer questions such as, “What are the changes made to this firewall rule in the past 30 days?”

Real-time notification on asset config change

Set up Cloud Pub/Sub channels to get real-time updates on any asset config change, reduce the frequency of exports, and easily achieve continuous monitoring.

Fine-grained IAM permission control

You can control the access to Cloud Asset Inventory data down to each resource and policy type, so you can benefit from the power of a centralized inventory, and also achieve least privilege when needed.

Powerful data analysis through BigQuery

Cloud Asset Inventory directly integrates with BigQuery, so that you can run complex queries using BigQuery once you export asset data from Cloud Asset Inventory.

Search through your resources and IAM policies

Sift through millions of assets using a simple command to identify the resource or IAM policy you need. For example, quickly look up VMs with a certain label or find the right IAM policies containing a certain role or outside domain. With the search functionality, you can quickly and easily perform asset management and risk analysis.
