Liquid C2, Anthropic and Google: AI for Africa?

Cloud service provider Liquid C2 has announced collaborations with global technology leader Google Cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) company Anthropic to deliver advanced cloud, cybersecurity solutions, and generative AI (gen AI) capabilities to African businesses across the continent.

Building on the November 2023 signature of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a collaboration with Google Cloud in Africa, Liquid C2 is set to improve cybersecurity and cloud offerings across the continent while introducing them to Google Cloud’s latest AI, data, collaboration and security solutions.

Customers of Liquid C2 can, we are told, expect heightened security measures, access to advanced cloud technologies, and a commitment to securing their digital assets.

Liquid C2 is set to be one of Google Cloud’s largest managed security service providers (MSSPs) in Africa, combining Google Cloud’s security solutions with Liquid C2's expertise and vision in offering comprehensive security consulting.

In addition, the collaboration enables Liquid C2 to bring the capabilities of both Google Cloud and Anthropic’s AI models to its customers via Google Cloud’s Vertex AI platform1, helping businesses develop and deploy solutions quickly within their cloud environments.

Liquid C2 will also deliver Google Workspace to customers across the continent. Designed to facilitate team connections in a cloud-native environment, Google Workspace features embedded generative AI tools to help employees create content and achieve greater productivity and collaboration in the workplace.

In addition, Liquid C2 is working directly with Anthropic to develop AI solutions for large enterprises that want to use it to improve productivity and revenue growth. Anthropic has a strategic partnership with Google Cloud, and Claude – Anthropic’s family of foundational AI models that excel at thoughtful dialogue, content creation, complex reasoning, creativity, and coding – is available in Google Cloud’s Vertex AI.
