The 10 Coolest Big Data Products Of 2013


Sqrrl Enterprise 1.1

Sqrrl has been getting a lot of attention this year, due, in part, to its founders, who came from the super-secret National Security Agency and helped develop that organization's massive database.

The company has been developing database software that's both scalable and secure -- the technology provides data security at the cell level -- to power big data applications. The 1.1 release in June moved the product from limited release to general availability, as well as added advanced security tools and enhanced analytic capabilities.
