On Tuesday, Google unveiled its latest cybersecurity-focused product called Google Threat Intelligence. This new offering, part of the Google Cloud Security portfolio, aims to help cybersecurity professionals get a better understanding of global threats.

Leveraging the capabilities of Google’s AI model Gemini, along with insights from Mandiant and VirusTotal, two security-focused subsidiaries, the platform promises to provide valuable insights into threat intelligence.

Introduced at the RCA conference in San Francisco, Google described Threat Intelligence as incorporating Gemini, their AI-powered agent, which enables conversational search across a vast repository of threat intelligence. This, Google claims, allows customers to gain insights and protect themselves from threats more efficiently than before.

Google emphasised that the visibility of threats is a major concern for cybersecurity professionals, requiring both a comprehensive view of the landscape and significant time to collect and process data into actionable insights.

Threat Intelligence aims to address these challenges by leveraging Google’s extensive threat insight, which includes protecting billions of devices and email accounts from millions of phishing attempts daily. Additionally, Mandiant, known for incident response expertise, and VirusTotal, with its crowdsourced malware database, contribute insights to the product.

The platform will also benefit from Google’s Gemini 1.5 Pro AI model, which acts as a conversational chatbot, assisting in curating data and insights from the platform’s database.

According to Google, this enables customers to condense large data sets in seconds, quickly analyse suspicious files, and simplify manual threat intelligence tasks. The AI can even reverse engineer malware, as demonstrated by its ability to process the entire decompiled code of the WannaCry malware file and identify a killswitch in just 34 seconds.

Google Threat Intelligence is part of the Google Cloud Security portfolio, which includes offerings like Google Security Operations, Mandiant Consulting, Security Command Center Enterprise, and Chrome Enterprise. Organizations interested in adopting the platform can reach out to Google for further information.
