The 31-year-old Northern Ireland international has moved to St Andrews, where he will challenge Ian Bennett for the number one jersey.
Belgian Nico Vaesen is also at the club but is sidelined with a knee injury for another few months.
"Yes, we've taken Maik on a year's loan with a view to a permanent transfer," Bruce told the Evening Mail.
"We think he's a very good signing for us.
"He's an international, around 6ft 4in and has done it at the highest level.
"I'm pleased we've managed to bring someone in of his quality as, although it was not a case of us panicking, it was getting near to the start of the season."
Bruce had considered the likes of Mark Crossley, Dragan Zilic, Frederic Roux and Nelson in the last few weeks - but he has finally secured a deal for Taylor.
