Google has introduced the Chronicle to detect enterprise-level cyber threats to businesses that are vying for quick digital detection & response. The web search giant is offering the product which can use machine learning tools to analyze huge volumes of data to detect any anomalies.
Factually speaking, the Chronicle is functional in Google Cloud since Oct’19 as it helps the internet juggernaut with advanced threat detection capabilities. Now, the same tool will be implemented to help businesses in investigating cyber threats launched on business networks and that too with the help of new programming language YARA-L.
Technically, YARA-L is a product of VirusTotal which was acquired by Google in 2012 and is a malware detection solution that can be applied to security logs n telemetry aspects.
Now, the Chronicle is enhanced by adding intelligent data fusion to analyze huge data sets to develop comprehensive threat responses to Google Cloud customers.
Note- According to the inside sources, Chronicle technology was meant to leverage the Alphabet’s huge computing power to build threat awareness to make Cybersecurity easy, automatic and proactive. But as soon as it got integrated into Google Cloud, it lost its sheen and is now being treated as a dead technology. Now, with the new announcement, Google wants to revive the technology and help enterprises mitigate cyber threats in a proactive and automated way.
Hope it succeeds well in doing so!
