Compliance Frameworks


GCP MemoryStore is a service that allows you to construct your apps by using open source caching engines: Memcached or Redis. Memorystore is protocol compliant and supports both caching engines. It was detected that GCP Redis instance {GcpRedisInstance} is not in-transit encrypted. In-transit encryption using HTTPS (TLS) protocol helps to prevent potential attackers from eavesdropping or manipulating network traffic using attacks such as man-in-the-middle. However, take into account that in-transit encrypting data might have an impact on performance.
