We’re excited to share that Gartner has recognized Google as a Visionary in the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Participating for the first time in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM, we have been positioned as a Visionary because of our powerful search capabilities that help drive threat hunting and rapid investigation, as well as our fully integrated SOAR platform and integrated threat intelligence from Mandiant and VirusTotal.

“Google’s product enhancements for more classic SIEM functions have opened up Google Security Operations as a viable SIEM competitor,” 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for SIEM.


The journey to reimagining security operations

Google Security Operations reimagines SecOps with a cloud-born,  intelligence-driven, and AI-powered security operations platform built to accelerate the ability to detect, defend against, and respond to threats. In recent months, we have continued to advance this vision with innovative capabilities, including:

  • A unified platform: ​​With our new consolidated experience for SIEM and SOAR functionality, security teams can benefit from rich context and easy pivoting between alerts, cases, investigations, and playbooks in a single console, for a more streamlined and integrated threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) experience. Last week at RSA, we launched Google Security Operations, continuing our investment in an intelligence- and AI-driven security operations platform. 

  • An AI-powered platform: With Gemini in Security Operations, we were the first major cloud provider to make generative AI generally available to defenders in a unified SecOps platform. Gemini in Security Operations can enable defenders to search vast amounts of data in seconds using natural language and make faster decisions by answering questions, summarizing events, hunting for threats, creating rules, and delivering recommended actions based on the context of investigations. Security teams can also use Gemini in Security Operations to easily build response playbooks, customize configurations, and incorporate best practices — helping simplify time-consuming tasks that require deep expertise.

  • An intelligence-driven platform: Our release of Applied Threat Intelligence unlocks deeper threat hunting and investigation workflows by providing high-quality insights about threats. This can enable users to spend less time on monitoring activities and uses deep insights from Mandiant experts and the breadth of crowd-sourced insights from VirusTotal users.

  • Expert help when you need it: Mandiant Hunt provides threat hunting by Mandiant experts, who use your cloud and Google Security Operations data to potentially expose previously undetected attacker activity.

  • Strengthening nationwide cyber defense: Our Google SecOps CyberShield solution can help enable governments to enhance threat and situational awareness, build cybersecurity skills and capabilities, and facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration to raise the bar for security at a national level.

Building for our customers first

We are committed to working closely with our customers, and to ensure that our accelerated pace of innovation helps them better defend against the latest cyberthreats. In the words of the CISO of a multi-billion dollar automotive company, “Our cybersecurity teams deal with issues faster with Google Security Operations, but they also identify more issues. The real question is, ‘how much safer do I feel as a CISO with Google Security Operations versus my old platform?’ and I would say 100 times safer.
