By CIOReview | Friday, May 20, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Sqrrl, a security analytics company and Anomali, a provider of threat intelligence has recently signed an agreement to work together in helping organizations counter advanced cyber threats. Sqrrl’s unique platform 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. On the other hand, Anomali delivers innovative and effective technologies and solutions to achieve a secure world.

Mark Terenzoni, CEO, Sqrrl comments, “Siloes across security tools must be broken down, and the Sqrrl/Anomali partnership enables our customers to easily unite threat intelligence with their own data stored in the Sqrrl threat hunting platform.”

With techniques derived from ‘Knowledge Extraction’ and ‘Linked Data Analysis’ data models, Sqrrl ensures maximum security. Through its enterprise approach, the company provides data-centric security to clients, offering disparate data sources with various security and compliance requirements to be consolidated into a shared platform for processing, analytics, and application development.

The features of the Sqrrl and Anomali joint solution include the matching of threat intelligence data to internal network and endpoint datasets. It also has provision for contextual investigation of threat intelligence matches using Sqrrl's linked data and behavior graph approaches along with machine learning analytics. The integrated solution would be available to customers for demonstrations, proofs of concept, and production deployments.

Mark Seward, VP of Security Solutions at Anomali states, “Sqrrl's security platform and Anomali's Threatstream 6 threat intelligence platform create a solution that scales to meet the challenge posed by the exponential growth in indicators of compromise (IOCs) while supporting an intelligence driven SOC.”
