Data-Security & Privacy Leader Brings Award-Winning Data Classification, Governance, Discovery
& GDPR Compliance Capabilities to Over 20,000,000 Websites (GDPR)
Raleigh, N.C., July 2, 2018 (Globe Newswire) – Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc., a leading data security company, today announced it has secured the global technology, branding, and ongoing management rights to leading WordPress GDPR solution: The WordPress GDPR Framework. The WordPress GDPR Framework is an open-source plugin developed by Codelight, a leading EU-based WordPress developer, to address the EU’s recent General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).
WordPress, the world’s leading web hosting and content management ecosystem, powers roughly 50 to 60 percent of the world’s content management and e-commerce sites with over 20,000,000 sites using the open-source software for their primary corporate website and intranet, with a significant number of those sites delivering e-commerce services.
Data443’s entry into the WordPress content management system (CMS) space is a natural progression of the company’s approach to reach the millions of organizations that are subject to data privacy laws globally yet do not have a significant existing capability for compliance. The WordPress GDPR Framework is also a natural complement to Data443’s existing solution set, which includes its award-winning data classification and governance technology, ClassiDocs™.
“The CMS ecosystem is diverse and far-reaching, and touches many aspects of business operations that are subject to data privacy regulations, from corporate communications to marketing and e-commerce,” said Jason Remillard, CEO and founder of Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. “WordPress leads worldwide in the CMS space with roughly 500 new sites being built daily. Being at the top of the WordPress Plugin app store with our GDPR solution significantly extends our market reach. By fortifying The WordPress GDPR Framework with ClassiDocs and other capabilities we have in the labs, we will expand our enterprise, cloud, and on-premise capabilities and deliver a substantial benefit for the many organizations looking to fast-track GDPR compliance and data subject access request (DSAR) capabilities.”
The WordPress GDPR Framework is developer friendly and allows organizations to enable GDPR-compliant features such as allowing both site users and visitors without accounts to automatically view, export, and delete their personal data as well as track, manage, and withdrawal consent. These capabilities will bolster the already rich ClassiDocs framework and be offered through Data443’s sales and marketing channels as well as the WordPress Plugin app store.
“Data443 has the sales and marketing channels that will extend the reach and capabilities for existing and new clients of The WordPress GDPR Framework offering,” said Codelight founder Indrek Kõnnussaar. “What started as an offering to the community to help them with GDPR requirements has exploded into numerous capability and functionality requests. With over 30,000 downloads and more than 10,000 active installations to date, the project has grown beyond our expectations and we expect that to continue. The Data443 team is best positioned to carry this project forward and we are excited to work with them to bring it into the future.”
Data443’s ClassiDocs can deploy in minutes using existing infrastructures with no special ports or configuration items required to provide an accurate and up-to-date data inventory across all end points, any attached or mapped cloud storage, databases, email, structured and unstructured data, and data at rest or in flight. Upon integration with Data443’s ClassiDocs, WordPress customers can:
• Discover PII, PCI, HIPAA, and other confidential information
• Report on and remediate security access controls
• Respond to data subject access requests (DSARs) and remediation actions, with built in analytics
• Comply with 12 of the most critical GDPR articles, both for reporting and technical controls
• Integrate with DLP, CASB, SIEM, and cloud solutions to fortify security
• Extend on-premise and corporate cloud capabilities for GDPR resolution via a simplistic and existing infrastructure
