Boston Meridian advises Sqrrl on its sale to Amazon

Boston Meridian is pleased to announce the sale of Sqrrl to Amazon Web Services. Sqrrl is the first and only purpose-built Threat Hunting Platform to detect cyber adversaries that have evaded detection or proper prioritization by existing cyber defenses. The Company utilizes linked data, machine learning, UEBA, risk scoring, and Big Data technologies to provide a behavior graph that reveals malicious patterns and anomalies hidden within security datasets.

Accumulo, the technology which underpins the Threat Hunting Platform, was developed by Sqrrl’s co-founders during their time at the NSA. With most companies facing a shortage of internal security skills and resources, Sqrrl helps increase analyst efficiency and reduce attacker dwell time.

This acquisition will add to the portfolio of security services already offered by AWS such as CloudTrail, GuardDuty, Inspector, and Macie. These security services help organizations transition to the Cloud while maintaining visibility and control of their IT estate.

Boston Meridian is an innovative investment bank that provides M&A and capital raising advisory services to leading technology companies.  We leverage senior partner expertise to unlock the strategic value of technology and achieve rapid and unparalleled results for our clients.
