OneTrust Crosses 200 Employees, Commits to 500 More as Global Expansion Accelerates

OneTrust secures two new office spaces to support explosive employee growth, and announces a rapidly expanding customer list of top named companies using OneTrust software to prepare for Europe's new data privacy laws

May 07, 2018

OneTrust, a global leader in enterprise privacy management software, today announces accelerated global growth plans as it surpasses 1,500 platform users, many of which represent Fortune 500 and Global 2,000 enterprises.

In under two years, OneTrust has surpassed 200 employees across four global offices in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and developed a comprehensive multi-lingual privacy management software solution that supports more than 35 languages.

Backed by the founders of Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and AirWatch ($1.54B acq by VMware), OneTrust is co-headquartered in Atlanta, GA and London, UK, with a fast-growing global team of privacy and technology experts.

The company recently announced plans to expand significantly in Atlanta, including the creation of 500 new jobs in sales, consulting, marketing, and software engineering over the next several years. Additionally, OneTrust is expanding its international presence with expanded office locations in central London and Bangalore, India.

In an announcement with the State of Georgia, OneTrust Co-Chairman, Alan Dabbiere, gave the following statement:

“OneTrust plays a critical role in helping global organizations comply with international privacy regulations, and Atlanta serves as the best city for our business with its easy access to global markets. Having previously built two successful technology companies in this city, I believe Atlanta has the top technology talent pool for building a leading, successful software company to serve our global customer base.”

The accelerated global growth and international presence allow OneTrust to continue to provide industry-leading privacy management technology, privacy research, and privacy-focused user groups that help organizations comply with data privacy and regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR,) the renowned and transformative new governance coming out of the European Union (EU.)

“Europe’s new privacy law, the GDPR, is innovative in its approach, and is essentially forcing organizations to accelerate their solutions to meet the regulatory and consumer demands around privacy,” said OneTrust CEO, Kabir Barday, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, CIPM, CIPT. “As OneTrust scales rapidly to address the needs of enterprise privacy management programs, we will continue to make significant investments into the practices and people behind our innovations for the benefit of our global customer base.”

The comprehensive OneTrust platform helps organizations track the full lifecycle of their personal data flows, analyze them against global regulations to understand risks, communicate directly with customers, employees, and vendors to capture consent, handle privacy-related requests, and respond appropriately in the event of an incident.

“OneTrust’s growth is fueled by the macro trends of organizations collecting more personal data than ever before; IoT making this data even more sensitive; big data pressuring organizations to analyze and use the data in new ways; and consumer demand for additional privacy rights,” Barday continued. “All of this is putting pressure on organizations to think twice about how they protect the information they hold.”

OneTrust added significant experience to the executive team to balance its explosive growth by bringing on executives: Ian Evans, Managing Director EMEA (former Managing Director EMEA, VMware AirWatch); Blake Brannon, VP Product (former VP Product Marketing, VMware AirWatch); Kevin Kiley, VP Sales (former Sr. Director, North America Enterprise Segments, VMware EUC); David Dabbiere, Executive Legal Advisor (former COO VMware AirWatch).

“Accelerated growth must be balanced by a strong executive team,” said OneTrust Co-Chairman John Marshall, former Founder and CEO of AirWatch (acq. VMware $1.54B). “The advantage at OneTrust is that most the executive team has worked together previously and have learned the focus and commitment it takes to build a global leading software company that serves its customers and employees well.”
