Netease Technologies News March 5, CNBC reported that Chronicle, a network security subsidiary of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, just released its first commercial product, a data security platform called Backstory.
By using Googles vast infrastructure and analysis capabilities, Backstory enables security analysts to analyze potential threats from a large number of alerts and help them identify real vulnerabilities more quickly. In the U.S. market where network security vendors are clustered, security teams currently have little way to integrate all data from different products into a unified system.
Chronicle did not provide pricing details, but its CEO, Stephen Gillett, said it would not charge on a volume basis because it would bring unexpected bills to customers. According to Chronicle, licensing fees will be based on the size of the company, not the amount of customer data.
Some network security companies have begun to integrate backstories into their products. Carbon Black participated in the Backstory test and added the products processing, storage and analysis capabilities through its endpoint security data.
Michael Viscuso, co-founder and Chief Strategic Officer of the company, said: The existing security analysis models are too decentralized, too slow, and with the current tools, the security team has a huge workload and an alarming cost. (small)
