Chronicle, the Google Cloud security unit that reportedly has struggled in recent months, has expanded its firepower.
Last week at the RSA cybersecurity conference in San Francisco, Google Cloud announced among other additions integration between Chronicle and Palo Alto Networks’ brand-new Cortex XSOAR, a threat intelligence management platform with playbook-driven automation.
The partnership with Palo Alto “is a vote of confidence from a highly respected security industry heavyweight,” Kenneth Hartman, security consultant and instructor at the SANS Institute, told DCK.
Chronicle came out of Google parent Alphabet’s X R&D lab, which works on moonshot ideas and operates in secret. Chronicle ran as an independent company since early 2018 until last year becoming part of Google Cloud. Its core product used to be called Backstory, but the company is now referring to it simply as Chronicle.
