SAN FRANCISCO, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TrustArc, the leader in data privacy management and automation, and BigID, the leader in data discovery and intelligence for privacy, protection and perspective, today announced a partnership to help organizations uncover, classify, understand, and protect personal and sensitive data for ongoing privacy compliance.

"Data is a company's most vital asset. Maintaining data privacy reduces the risk businesses incur while simultaneously unlocking the business value of that data," said Michael Lin, SVP product and engineering of TrustArc. "Our partnership with BigID combines its excellence in data discovery, an essential element of a strong privacy program, with a simplified, automated view of privacy compliance that only TrustArc can offer."

The TrustArc/BigID partnership enables organizations to optimally define, build, and maintain flexible, responsive, and automated data privacy-management programs. As regulations and business requirements shift, privacy managers can leverage TrustArc's Privacy Management Platform and knowledge to adjust their processes accordingly, modify operational frameworks, and automate fulfillment based on up-to-date accurate and comprehensive data intelligence.

Through the partnership, customers can also:

  • Take action on privacy insights generated from continuous analysis of all data platforms and types, including cloud software, files, big data, and traditional data stores;
  • Automate discovery, classification, and inventorying of personal and sensitive data based on how data is related to individuals across the enterprise;
  • Automate the management of consumer and data subject access requests (DSRs) at scale using data inventories;
  • Seamlessly populate the TrustArc Data Inventory Hub and update it based on new discovery findings.

"This partnership highlights TrustArc and BigID's approach to bring clarity and intelligence to the complex data privacy regulatory environments," said Nimrod Vax, co-founder and chief product officer of BigID. "With this partnership, we aim to ensure that customers can automate and manage privacy compliance for the long haul, beyond the initial manual controls many organizations have started with to address regulatory compliance."
