Chronicle is a subsidiary of Alphabet, the parent company of Google. In Backstory, Chronicle’s global cloud service, companies can store their internal security telemetry so they can be analyzed for potential attacks and threats.

The goal is to stay one step ahead of the attackers.
“Our partnership with Chronicle will enable simpler, faster and easier disposal of advanced persistent cyber threats,” said Tony Anscombe, ESET Global Security Specialist. “With our help, customers will be able to understand events in greater detail, take appropriate actions, and stay one step ahead of attackers,” Anscombe said.

A global platform for analyzing enterprise security telemetry, Backstory offers customers greater value when integrated with other key technologies in their networks. “We believe our collaboration with ESET gives our customers a broader and more accurate view of the threats on their networks.”
