Sqrrl is the security intelligence company that enables organizations to target, hunt, and disrupt advanced cyber threats. Sqrrl's Linked Data Analysis approach uses visual, contextual and computational tools to detect and investigate hackers and malicious insiders. This enables analysts to reveal behaviors, patterns, and anomalies hidden within massive security datasets. Sqrrl finds threats that traditional detection tools miss, because it focuses on uncovering an adversary’s Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) instead of relying only on simple indicators of compromise. Sqrrl’s Big Data architecture leverages Hadoop, link analysis, machine learning, data-centric security, and advanced graph visualization technology. More at http://www.sqrrl.com.
