Active Navigation and OneTrust are pleased to announce they have entered into a global partnership, combining Active Navigation’s data mapping technology into OneTrust’s dedicated privacy management platform

“Data privacy has become a critical element of any information security program, as companies need to be prepared to meet stringent data privacy regulations such as the CCPA and GDPR." - Peter Baumann, CEO of Active Navigation

Active Navigation, a data privacy and governance software provider, and OneTrust, the largest and most widely used dedicated privacy management platform, today announced their partnership to enable OneTrust customers to create a precise data map of their unstructured data estate and corresponding digital risk.

Since data privacy plays an increasingly critical role in every aspect of business, companies are recognizing that accurate data maps are critical to GDPR, CCPA and global privacy compliance. To ensure they remain on the competitive vanguard, organizations need to understand where their data is, what it consists of, and how to delete it.

“Data privacy has become a critical element of any information security program, as companies need to be prepared to meet stringent data privacy regulations such as the CCPA and GDPR. We are proud to partner with OneTrust to help their customers automate the mapping, classifying, cleaning and deleting of sensitive, risky data,” said Peter Baumann, CEO of Active Navigation. Active Navigation’s Discovery Center creates a global data map of a customer’s unstructured information estate, which plugs into OneTrust’s privacy management platform for end to end data governance.”

“Organizations are facing increased pressure to comply with privacy regulations and OneTrust is committed to building integrated solutions that assist in the management of complex data inventory and mapping obligations,” said Blake Brannon, Vice President of OneTrust. “With the expansion of our Data Discovery Partner Program, we’re enabling our global customer base to rapidly gain the technology expertise required to accelerate and automate their privacy initiatives.”

OneTrust and Active Navigation customers can:

  • Create a comprehensive data map of their global, unstructured data estate and populate results into OneTrust
  • Defensibly delete or quarantine data to comply with data privacy regulations, such as the CCPA and GDPR
  • Reduce risky or sensitive data-under-management by more than 30%
