CRN reports the launch of the Predictive Analytics for Cyber in Enterprises tool, a cloud-native cybersecurity solution jointly developed by Google Cloud and Deloitte. Employing the risk management and cyber risk quantification frameworks by Deloitte and Google's Chronicle, Looker and BigQuery technologies, PACE provides close-to-real-time threat visibility while being able to scale for hybrid- and multi-cloud environments, and aggregates security data to generate metrics that allow enterprises to address threats based on priority. The new solution comes as more organizations migrate their workforce to remote use and is the result of Google's string of major technology acquisitions in the last few years, including Google Cloud's absorption in 2019 of cybersecurity company Chronicle – which also produced the Chronicle Detect threat-detection product that allows organizations to transition to modern security solutions from existing legacy tools. Google closed on its $2.6 billion purchase of Looker in 2020, and Google Looker later that year won a 2020 Tech Innovator Award from CRN.
