Alphabet Inc on Tuesday unveiled Chronicle, a cyber security business founded in its X incubation unit in early 2016 that is focusing on developing digital “immune systems” for customers.

“The reality for most companies today when it comes to cyber security is reactive: find and clean up the damage,” Astro Teller, head of Alphabet’s X, also called “captain of moonshots,” said in a blog post. “The real moonshot, which is still several years away, is predicting and deflecting cyber attacks before they infiltrate an organization’s network.”
