Sqrrl unifies multiple Big Data approaches into a single platform, which can be employed in use cases such as data breach, resulting from cyber-espionage, insider misuse and other types of complex attacks. Cambridge, MA based Sqrrl’s Big Data Analytics allows an organization to detect unusual activity by uncovering hidden connections in their data. Sqrrl Enterprise, their flagship product, developed using Linked Data Analysis policy, provides a way to visually investigate these connections. Sqrrl Enterprise enables its clients to ingest, secure, connect, and analyze massive amounts of structured and unstructured data. The product features streaming, encrypting, organizing bulk data with the entities and relationships, and fine-grained access controls. The solution also includes a web-based dash boarding service helps navigate through the data and relationships in the system.
Additionally, Sqrrl ensures maximum security through techniques derived from ‘Knowledge Extraction’, and ‘Linked Data Analysis’. Data resulting from Linked Data Analysis is more useful with enriched contextual information, which includes additional details on the information itself as well as what it’s related to. Through its Enterprise approach, the company provides data-centric security to clients, enabling disparate data sources with various security and compliance requirements to be consolidated into a shared platform for processing, analytics, and application development.
A Fortune 50 customer, based in the U.S, turned to Sqrrl to resolve an internal setback in their Security Operations Centre (SOC). Sqrrl, which is built with Big Data technology, collected all the information needed for storage, processing and analysis in a unified system. This helped in reducing the time taken for the analyst team to conduct searches and investigations in support of cyber security review. The team can now retrieve secure records within minutes instead of weeks or days. The SOC now publishes self-serviced, on-demand investigations enabled by Sqrrl’s data-centric security approach, where every field of data in the system is individually protected.
