The industry uses the "moonshot" label to describe breakthrough technologies. In the case of Alphabet's X business unit, which is all about moonshots, that means using balloons to bring the Internet to everyone in the world, building self-driving cars, delivery drones, and harnessing geothermal energy.
With Chronicle, the latest business unit launched independently from X on Wednesday, the goal is more modest (though still pretty ambitious): Building a digital "immune system" against enterprise security threats.

Just as the body's immune system finds potential threats by looking for anomalies that shouldn't be present, Chronicle wants to build a system that will guard against Internet threats by looking for digital anomalies. It's an approach also being tried by other companies, ranging from Cisco to at least one startup.
