Google Cloud has acquired Siemplify, which is a provider of security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR). According to Google Cloud, this acquisition will enable it to further its vision of offering a modern threat management stack that will empower customers to go beyond security event and information management (SIEM) and extended detection and response (XDR) to achieve better detection and response at scale. 

It plans to integrate Siemplify into its Chronicle solution, which provides security analytics.  

“We’re excited to join Google Cloud and build on the success we’ve had in the market helping companies address growing security threats,” said Amos Stern, CEO at Siemplify. “Together with Chronicle’s rich security analytics and threat intelligence, we can truly help security professionals transform the security operations center to defend against today’s threats.”

Ontic expands Real-Time Threat Detection solution 

The new capabilities will provide security teams with situational awareness and the ability to identify potential threats. Key features include high-impact weather alerts; interactive visualization of critical signals from OSINT, social media, the dark web, and news sources; and continuous gathering of real-time and historical data.

“Many solutions on the market today deliver signals from sources like OSINT, social media, and the dark web as well as weather forecasts and alerts that can result in an overflow of information limiting the context needed when physical threats may be imminent,” said Manish Mehta, chief product officer at Ontic. “Our Real-Time Threat Detection solution is the first to combine these signals, and complex critical information so security teams can detect threats early, establish situational awareness, track changing situations and proactively act on early risk indicators to mitigate business disruptions and keep their assets safe.”
