An update on Chronicle: Continuing to give good the advantage


In June, we announced Chronicle was coming to Google Cloud. Since then, we've been hard at work and wanted to give you an update on our progress as well as a sneak peak of what’s to come. 

Chronicle’s mission has always been to give good the advantage. We’ve done this with our products VirusTotal and Backstory. The same mission underpins how we build and deliver Google Cloud security solutions that work on our platform and across multi-cloud deployments. As a result, we’ve consolidated our security solutions into a single group, enabling teams working on cloud-native controls, security integrations with partners and security analytics (i.e. Backstory) to collaboratively deliver next generation enterprise security services. 

In one week we’ll take the stage at Next UK, where we are sharing how we are connecting Chronicle and Google Cloud to create a comprehensive security business that will benefit all of our customers. During the opening keynote at Next UK, we’ll be announcing multiple new native capabilities, and also demonstrating upcoming features in Chronicle’s Backstory product, Google Cloud’s flagship offering for hybrid security analytics. Tune into to watch live, or feel free to catch a replay after the event. 

NCR is an example of a customer already seeing benefits with Chronicle. “We recently became a Backstory customer, and so far, we have been impressed with the innovation we are seeing from Chronicle,” says Bob Varnadoe, CISO of NCR. “With Backstory, we can do in minutes what used to take days with our previous SIEM.”

In addition to customer momentum, partners who have been previewing our new capabilities are excited about the investments in the product they are seeing since Chronicle joined Google Cloud:

"As an early strategic partner of Chronicle, we work very closely with the Backstory team and I can tell you first hand it has been full steam ahead. We're excited by the technology and the new capabilities we are building together with Chronicle and Google,"  says Gary Fish, CEO of Fishtech Group.

Security is one of the key solutions we are focused on delivering at Google Cloud, and with Chronicle, we’ll reimagine enterprise security services to keep customers safe on GCP, on premises, or on other clouds.

See you in London!
