Alphabet launches new company focused on cybersecurity

Google has a new sister: Parent company Alphabet Inc. announced today the formation of a new subsidiary company, called Chronicle, focused on cybersecurity.

Chronicle was formed in 2016 inside of X, Alphabet’s experimental lab that has produced its driverless car effort, Waymo, and projects on drones, internet connectivity and the Google Glass headset.

Stephen Gillet, chief executive officer of Chronicle, wrote in a blog post that Chronicle’s advantage would come from Alphabet’s gigantic computer infrastructure and machine learning, a popular type of artificial intelligence. “We’ll be able to help organizations see their full security picture in much higher fidelity than they currently can,” he wrote.

Gillet formerly served as chief operating officer of security software company Symantec Corp. He joined X in early 2016, according to his LinkedIn profile.
