Is that google exploring cybersecurity space? yes !!

Alphabet, the parent company of Google, announced that it would launch its first cybersecurity company, which it is calling Chronicle.
Chronicle will be a subsidiary of Alphabet.  Likewise Google is under the umbrella of one.
Chronicle will initially offer two services:

1. An malware intelligence service which was acquired by google over years (2012).
2. Cybersecurity intelligence and analytics platform that will help enterprises better manage and understand their own information-security-related data.

As we all know virustotal which is an online service which we can utilize to analyze the code or file which is malicious or not. All you need to do is upload and it compares with the almost available antivirus signatures and provide the results. It will continue to provide the services as is.

Security threats are growing faster than security teams and budgets can keep up, and there’s already a huge talent shortage. The proliferation of data from the dozens of security products that a typical large organization deploys is paradoxically making it harder, not easier, for teams to detect and investigate threats.

       Thousands of potential clues about hacking activity are overlooked or thrown away each day.As a result, it’s pretty common for hackers to go undetected for months, or for it to take a team months to fully understand what’s going on once they’ve detected an issue. All this adds up to more data breaches, more damage, and higher security costs.

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.

Hope the analytics platform which will emerge will help the large organizations to manage the information security in an ease, likewise we use the google analytics to review the data.

World-class experts in machine learning and cloud computing  are working on this project and expect that it will come up in good shape.
