2018 Tech Vendor Report

Updated: October 2019

The privacy tech vendor market continues to mature as more organizations around the world adopt products and services that help automate and streamline necessary functions for the privacy office and enterprise as a whole. Since the last iteration of the IAPP "Privacy Tech Vendor Report" at the end of 2018, dozens of new vendors have entered the marketplace. Many of these vendors are startups backed by angel or venture capital funding. Other more established organizations are also getting into the privacy space, as comprehensive laws, like the EU General Data Protection Regulation and California Consumer Privacy Act, become an operational reality and catch the attention of corporate leadership.
