Chronicle, Alphabet’s Cybersecurity Moonshot, Is Coming To Google Cloud

Spun out of the secretive X division, Chronicle will merge with sister company Google, and its threat detection tools will later be directly integrated into GCP.

A “moonshot” cybersecurity company within Google parent Alphabet’s portfolio will be merged with Google and its threat-detection technology integrated into Google Cloud, the Internet giant revealed on Thursday.

Chronicle was born in and spun out from the secretive X division, another Alphabet subsidiary that’s essentially a factory for incubating next-generation technologies like Waymo self-driving cars and Loon balloons that provide Internet access in remote areas.

The startup’s technology, which takes advantage of Google cloud infrastructure and analytics, protects enterprise systems with advanced threat detection information that helps security analysts evaluate alerts and focus on the most-serious threats.

“This union will create a powerful and comprehensive security portfolio that will benefit all of our customers,” wrote Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian in a company blog.

“With the trajectories of Chronicle and Google Cloud increasingly converging in response to customer needs, we want to bring these essential capabilities together for customers,” Kurian said.
