The latest addition to the Alphabet family, which already has giants like Google, Waymo and Nest and several other big names under it, is Chronicle. This company has been created to cater to the usual Google tenets of machine learning and cloud computing to cybersecurity.

And now, the company is building a cybersecurity intelligence platform which will enable organisations manage and understand their own data better.
Stephen Gillett, the CEO of Chronicle, explained the existence and functionality of the company on their official blog. It read:

Gillett added, "It should be able to help teams search and retrieve useful information and run analysis in minutes, rather than the hours or days it currently takes."
