The company is already up and running with an absolutely awesome URL, “chronicle.security,” along with two introductory blog posts (1, 2), a logo, a Twitter account, and a vague sales pitch for some kind of security analysis product. The Chronicle team started in February 2016 under Alphabet’s “Moonshot factory” X group and, before now, had been in stealth mode.
According to the website, the company is building a “cybersecurity intelligence platform” that can help organizations better manage and understand their own data.
