Duet AI for Developers Partner Ecosystem

Supercharge threat detection, response, and prevention with Duet AI in Security Operations

With Duet AI in Security Operations we are the first major cloud provider in the market to make generative AI generally available to defenders in a unified SecOps platform. This incorporates our leading security intelligence (i.e., Mandiant’s frontline intelligence on vulnerabilities, malware, and threat indicators) to help defenders protect their organizations. Now, security teams can elevate their skills and boost productivity by accelerating threat detection, investigation, and response using the power of generative AI. With Duet AI in Security Operations, we are offering AI assistance first in Chronicle, where users can:

  • Search vast amounts of data in seconds with custom queries generated from natural language.
  • Reduce time-consuming manual reviews and quickly surface critical context by leveraging automatic summaries of case data and alerts.
  • Improve response time using recommendations for next steps to support incident remediation.

Security operations can now be supercharged with Duet AI across multiple dimensions - from streamlining threat detection and response to allowing a broader set of technology professionals, such as developers, to more easily comprehend and respond to threats giving the security experts time to focus on higher order issue resolution. With Duet AI in Security Operations, defenders can search event data and query across many log types without needing to know specialized syntax, saving valuable time.


Detect and respond to threats seamlessly with Duet AI in Security Operations

Early user feedback showed that Duet AI in Security Operations reduces the time security analysts spend writing, running, and refining searches and triaging complex cases by approximately 7X. Industry analysts from organizations like Enterprise Strategy Group recognize the benefits of Duet AI in Security Operations in improving Security Operation Center (SOC) efficiency and staff productivity:

"Enterprise Strategy Group research indicates security teams are getting buried by the scope, scale, pace, and complexity of day-to-day security operations tasks. With Duet AI in Security Operations, Google Cloud is making security more accessible, helping analysts investigate incidents more efficiently, automate many manual processes, and free up time to focus on higher priority needs. In this way, Google can help organizations bolster SOC efficiency and staff productivity." - Jon Oltsik, Distinguished Analyst and Fellow, Enterprise Strategy Group

Duet AI in Security Operations launched in preview earlier this year with over 150 customers. Feedback has been positive with less than 1% of requests receiving a “negative” rating by users. Customers like Pfizer are touting the benefits:

“Chronicle has unlocked the value of cybersecurity data at a massive scale. Data sources that used to take days to aggregate can now be analyzed in seconds. As we enter the next phase of our partnership, we are excited about Duet AI’s potential to dramatically increase the effectiveness of our team. The ability to use natural language queries to perform complex analysis will help new analysts on-board faster and let seasoned analysts rapidly pursue advanced threats across our complex environment." - Guy Delp, Vice President, Global Information Security, Pfizer
