Google steps up Cyber Security with Chronicle
Cybersecurity sees a new upgrade as Google’s parent company Alphabet gives its new subsidiary Chronicle a standalone status. The aim of Chronicle is to support business by identifying and curbing the large-scale cyber attacks that everyone is so prone to nowadays.
In the company line-up of Alphabet, Chronicle will respond to the cyberthreats that plague every business and organisation. Chronicle is developed by lab X of Alphabet, which is known as the moonshot factory contributing to mega challenges like driverless cars and AI based projects.
The man at the helm of affairs at Astro Teller X wrote in his blog-post “Organizations deploy dozens of security tools to protect themselves, and their security teams are highly skilled and extremely dedicated, but they can’t keep up with the growing number, sophistication and ambition of attacks “Solving this problem isn’t simply a question of time and trusting that we’ll catch up eventually. We have to start fresh and look at the problem from new angles.” The blog also mentions about the objective of Chronicle that it will “help enterprises better manage and understand their own security-related data.” According to the relevant website, VirusTotal (the malware concern working under the umbrella of Alphabet), the company is building a “cybersecurity intelligence platform.”
Stephen Gillet, formerly of Symantec is heading this autonomous cyber-security company Chronicle. Chronicle refers to creating a record that “helps people make sense of something that’s happened, how it happened, and why it happened.”
Facing much competition Chronicle may aim at users providing real time security as well as solutions to it. How successful the efforts would be will be seen after the now graduated Chronicle pushes its way into the realm of competitive market arena
