WireWheel Named a 2019 Cool Vendor in Privacy Management by Gartner


ARLINGTON, VA – April 22, 2018 – WireWheel, a leading privacy, and data protection platform, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner April 2019 Cool Vendors in Privacy Management report. The Cool Vendors report by Bart Willemsen, Alan Dayley, and Nader Henein warns that “by 2021, organizations that bypass privacy requirements and are caught lacking in privacy protection will pay double the compliance costs than best-practice-adhering competitors.”

Gartner also recommends organizations “increase customer trust by creating a smooth and direct privacy user experience by prioritizing automation and self-service capabilities over manual processes and reducing manual workforce pressure.”

“We believe recognition as a Gartner Cool Vendor confirms that our strategy is addressing the top challenges privacy and IT teams struggle with every day,” said Justin Antonipillai, CEO and co-founder of WireWheel. “We help companies accelerate compliance with GDPR, CCPA and other regulations by making sure they know what personal data they have, where it resides, where it’s processed, and who has access to it. As a result, they build trust with consumers, who expect their vendors to communicate openly and respond to data requests rapidly.”

WireWheel’s unique combination of functions increases transparency and efficient 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 the context and control required to make privacy management decisions.

WireWheel addresses the following key requirements for:

  • Data inventory and process mapping
  • Collaboration and sharing
  • Processor and sub-processor risk management, due diligence, and compliance scoring
  • Individual’s privacy rights request ingestion and execution, including deletion of the data
  • Physical and logical data location insights, including the compute location
  • Records of processing activities
