Alphabet, Google’s parent company, recently announced the launch of Chronicle – Google X’s new venture into cybersecurity, providing the digital world with an “immune system.” Google X, founded by Google in January 2010, is known for their semi-secret research and bold technology projects including self-driving cars and Wi-Fi balloons. Their new cybersecurity system will be no different when it comes to progressive technology. Chronicle’s strategy is one of trying to predict and deflect cyberattacks before they happen, breaking the current reactive cycle that exists with cybersecurity. Doing so can address issues of alerts and threats that are continuing to grow faster than IT security teams and their budgets can handle.
Since the announcement, several details are unknown including Chronicle’s analytics platform, service offerings, and early adopters (however, we do know several Fortune 500 companies are currently testing it). What we do know is that Chronicle will offer VirusTotal anti-malware intelligence service and a cybersecurity intelligence and analytics platform.
Google X is still expanding their team as they continue to test and refine Chronicle in hopes of producing solutions that will proactively combat cyberattacks shortly.
