Database startup sqrrl aims to set 'big data' free, for biz & society

Cambridge database startup sqrrl is seeking to serve two types of businesses: Ones that have a “big data” problem, and ones that would like to.

"Many folks have just been throwing their data away because they haven’t had a way to manage it," said CEO and co-founder Oren Falkowitz. "They know that there’s a richness in that information, so they want to have a big data problem — or a big data opportunity, if you would."

Launched this past summer, sqrrl is commercializing a new type of database initially conceived and developed within the National Security Agency.

The database aims to enable businesses to apply controls to sensitive pieces of data, so that the rest of the data doesn’t have to be locked up — and can thus be used for business purposes.
