OneTrust is a Leader in Privacy Management Software

Like anyone, we love recognition. But there is a bigger story here beyond OneTrust being named a leader in privacy management software.

Over the past two decades, the way that businesses engage with and create loyal customers has fundamentally changed. Businesses now must think about privacy and find ways to effectively manage data subject and consumer rights requests, meticulously document processing activities and data transfers, and stay on top of a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

As individuals’ awareness of their privacy rights grows, organizations must look at their privacy management program not only as a way to comply with regulations and frameworks, but also as a way to stand out from the competition. In order to turn trust into a competitive advantage, organizations need technology that helps operationalize, automate, and inform their privacy program. OneTrust provides the solution to do just that.

According to the Forrester report, “When most vendors refer to the same competitor to describe their position in the market, you know that competitor is shaping that market. In the privacy management software market, that vendor is OneTrust.”​
