Google Chronicle

What is Google Chronicle?

Chronicle is a cloud service, built as a specialized layer on top of core Google infrastructure, designed for enterprises to privately retain, analyze, and search the massive amounts of security and network telemetry they generate.

Chronicle SIEM normalizes, indexes, correlates, and analyzes the data to provide instant analysis and context on risky activity.

Chronicle SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation and Response) enables security teams to automate response to threats.

Why Should You Use the Google Chronicle Connector?

The Google Chronicle connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Google Chronicle REST API and ingests only meta-data about Google Chronicle devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
