sqrrl, the company focused on security, scalability, and adaptability for Big Data, today announced that it has received funding from Atlas Venture and Matrix Partners. Chris Lynch of Atlas and Antonio Rodriguez of Matrix will join the company’s board of directors. sqrrl’s seed round will enable the company to aggressively hire to meet the rising demand for secure, scalable, and adaptable Big Data products and fuel the release of an enterprise version of Apache Accumulo that extends the core technology.
"The sqrrl team is an awesome group of people that knows Big Data and knows security," said Chris Lynch, partner at Atlas Venture. “Their impressive experience, technical strength, and the maturity of Accumulo will help solve a number of core problems in the Big Data ecosystem.
