Alphabet launches cyber security company, Chronicle

The venture aims to reduce threat-detection costs for organizations by capitalizing on Google’s machine learning and cloud computing tools.

Alphabet, the parent company of tech giant Google has launched a cybersecurity intelligence SBU named Chronicle. With this launch, Alphabet say that they will allow customers to reduce total time taken to identify security threats which otherwise take ages and lots of dollars to figure out. They further added that Chronicle’s cyber intelligence product will rest on Google’s trusted tenets- machine learning and cloud computing.

Alphabet say that organizations spend millions on detecting and identifying certain cyber threats that hit their cost sheet quite heavily. With Chronicle’s analytics-driven platform, they claim that organizations will not only be able to reduce detection time of threats but also cut off unnecessary costs easily. Explaining the details of the launch, Stephen Gillett, the new CEO of Chronicle, commented:

We want to 10x the speed and impact of security teams’ work by making it much easier, faster and more cost-effective for them to capture and analyze security signals that have previously been too difficult and expensive to find. We are building our intelligence and analytics platform to solve this problem.

According to Alphabet, Chronicle is poised to provide two major advantages to customers- retrieving useful information & analyzing the same in minutes, as well as visualizing multiple patterns of useful and relevant data via Google’s storage systems. Since Chronicle is still in its alpha stage, revealing business plans and pricing models are not the topmost priorities they explained.
