Microsoft Corp. is expanding its product for finding and monitoring security weak spots in cloud-computing to include rival Alphabet Inc.’s Google Cloud Platform.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud will include support for Google Cloud starting Wednesday, three months after adding support for Amazon’s market leading products. 

Microsoft, which sells the rival Azure, used open programming interfaces to hook into its competitors’ products, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services and provide its cybersecurity services.
