Google Cloud Security Command Center: Node.js Client

release level npm version codecov

Node.js idiomatic client for Cloud Security Command Center.

Cloud Security Command Center helps security teams gather data, identify threats, and act on them before they result in business damage or loss. It offers deep insight into application and data risk so that you can quickly mitigate threats to your cloud resources and evaluate overall health. With Cloud Security Command Center, you can view and monitor an inventory of your cloud assets, scan storage systems for sensitive data, detect common web vulnerabilities, and review access rights to your critical resources, all from a single, centralized dashboard.

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be in beta. This means it is expected to be mostly stable while we work toward a general availability release; however, complete stability is not guaranteed. We will address issues and requests against beta libraries with a high priority.
