WireWheel Recognized in Two 2022 HypeCycle™ Reports by Gartner® for Third Consecutive Year

Arlington, VA, September 13, 2022 – WireWheel, a leader in privacy technology, today announced it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Privacy, 2022. WireWheel was named under Subject Rights Requests (at the peak) and Privacy Management Tools category (climbing the slope).

“To us, being recognized again by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in privacy software, is a reflection of our commitment to our continued investment in building technology that enables the world’s leading brands to deliver privacy at scale,” said Justin Antonipillai, CEO of WireWheel. “Working closely with our customers, we will continue to innovate to meet the needs of the market.”

Gartner estimates that “by 2024, government regulations requiring organizations to provide free and accessible consumer privacy rights will grow to cover five billion citizens and more than 70% of global GDP”.

“Privacy remains a top priority in managing cyber and IT risk as modern regulations continue to impact the processing of personal data,’” according to the report. “Privacy as a legally mandated right continues to be enshrined through regulatory changes worldwide. In parallel, consumers insist on engaging with and buying from trusted brands – with privacy being one of nine characteristics of a trusted organization.”

In our opinion, the world’s leading companies rely on the WireWheel platform to deliver on these requirements at scale through embedded expertise, robust automation and seamless integration with existing systems.
