Portland & Austin - April 2, 2020
Osano and Exterro launched a partnership this week to pair Osano’s industry-leading cookie consent management and vendor monitoring with Exterro’s powerful suite of privacy, e-discovery and risk management tools. With this announcement, the Osano Cookie Consent & Preference Management tools have been integrated into Exterro’s comprehensive Legal GRC Platform, giving customers access to the broadest and deepest privacy, compliance and litigation solution available. This integration will allow websites to instantly comply with all major data privacy laws, including GDPR, CCPA, and all other privacy legislation worldwide.
Businesses around the world are increasingly feeling pressure to comply with myriad data privacy laws that are now in effect across more than 40 countries. In the past several days, class-action lawsuits were announced against companies for violating the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), and the state attorney general announced that there would be no delays in enforcement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Data privacy remains mission-critical for business, even as they are being asked to make other significant changes to their operations,” said Osano Co-Founder and CEO, Arlo Gilbert. “Our partnership with Exterro is especially exciting because it comes at a great time for our customers. It will allow companies to solve their privacy and risk management issues quickly so that they can invest more of their time in doing what they do best.”
“The converging priorities among Privacy, Compliance, Legal, Security, and IT teams within enterprises globally has created a new reality for leaders of these disciplines. No longer can individual technology tools solve complex business challenges. Rather, a new strategy is required,” said Bobby Balachandran, President and CEO, Exterro. “Exterro is pleased to offer the world’s most popular Cookie Consent and Preference Management solution as part of our Legal GRC Platform which unifies the different people, processes and technologies utilized to ensure compliance, reduce risk and optimize operations.”
Exterro was founded with the simple vision that applying the concepts of process optimization and data science to how companies manage digital information and respond to litigation would drive more successful outcomes at a lower cost. Exterro remains committed to this vision today, delivering a fully integrated Legal GRC platform that enables clients to address their regulatory, compliance and litigation risks more effectively and at lower costs. With software solutions that span privacy, legal operations, compliance, cybersecurity and information governance, Exterro helps some of the world’s largest organizations work smarter and more efficiently.
