CYTRIO, a data privacy compliance company, added support for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to its all-in-one, cloud-native data privacy rights management automation solution. GDPR impacts any company, regardless of location, that collects, uses, shares, or stores personal information from European Union citizens. In November, the company released its solution to help companies of all sizes comply with the growing list of data privacy regulations in the U.S., including CCPA, CPRA, VCDPA, CPA. GDPR provides EU citizens certain rights over their personal information that a company collects or uses, including Right to Access and Right to Erasure (Delete).
CYTRIO offers out-of-the-box workflows and automated data discovery to help companies reduce the time and cost to respond to a data subject access request (DSAR). The secure consumer facing portal provides a 2-click process for the consumer to submit a DSAR. CYTRIO also provides Article 30 Record of Processing Activity (ROPA) reports to meet audit requirements.
CYTRIO helps automate GDPR and CCPA DSAR compliance management with an all-inclusive and simple usage based pricing. Companies pay based on DSARs processed by CYTRIO. First six (6) DSARs are free. Any company can sign up with no upfront cost and connect all in scope and supported data sources.
Airbyte, creators of an open-source data integration platform, made available in the U.S. its cloud service for data movement and unifying data integration pipelines. Airbyte Cloud’s pricing model is based on compute time, which can be less expensive than the industry-norm volume-based pricing which is cost prohibitive when replicating high volumes of data.
Airbyte’s open-source data integrations focused on solving two problems: First, companies have to build and maintain data connectors on their own because most less popular “long tail” data connectors are not supported by closed-source ELT technologies. Second, data teams often have to do custom work around pre-built connectors to make them work within their unique data infrastructure. In addition to providing hosting and management, Airbyte Cloud enables companies to have multiple workspaces and provides access management for their teams.
The company also announced cooperation with open-source maintainers within its user community. Airbyte will provide compensation for helping deliver new features and bug fixes for the continuously-growing list of data connectors. Contributors can earn money for work on data connectors for finding software bugs, and for bug fixes.
