ARLINGTON, Va., May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WireWheel, a leading provider of data privacy management solutions, today announced a partnership with Virtru, a leading data protection platform provider that stands at the intersection of security and privacy. Their combined solutions help companies meet increasingly stringent compliance regulations and rising customer expectations for how personal data is collected, processed and shared.
Protecting personal information requires best-in-class solutions at every stage of the data supply chain. Privacy practices, enabled by WireWheel, make sure information is collected and processed legally and fairly. Security controls, provided by Virtru, reduce risk of unauthorized access and maintain confidentiality, integrity and availability of information wherever it resides.
"Virtru and WireWheel are both committed to helping companies entrusted with personal information do everything they can to protect it," said WireWheel co-founder and CEO Justin Antonipillai. "By integrating our platform with the latest, advanced security technologies, we can help protect our customers from threats so they can collaborate across functions and communicate with their customers as they need."
WireWheel enables comprehensive management of privacy operations by increasing collaboration across privacy, security, business and technical teams. Machine learning for data discovery and classification provides insight into an organization's data management architecture, along with context and control required to make privacy management decisions. WireWheel's methodology allows companies to accurately and efficiently answer four questions that are fundamental to data privacy:
- What data is collected, processed, and stored
- Where data is stored
- Where data is computed
- What third parties are doing with it
Virtru helps organizations protect their data when sharing it, both internally and externally. The data protection platform provider fosters secure collaboration with persistent encryption and access and revocation controls to ensure privacy. Its distributed architecture means organizations can host their own encryption keys, giving them total access control, rather than blindly trusting third parties.
"As part of privacy operations, any communications regarding personal data within companies or between companies and consumers demands a high degree of security," said John Ackerly, CEO of Virtru. "By joining forces, WireWheel and Virtru help companies stay productive and gain value from their data while reducing their risk. This partnership enables us to integrate more closely with WireWheel to deliver the kind of solutions our customers require."
As a central hub for privacy management operations, WireWheel partners with top privacy, security and data management solutions like Virtru to accelerate compliance and improve the end-to-end privacy experience.
