Privacy solution Nymity expands its product offering with the introduction of Next Generation Research & Alerts.
Nymity, an established privacy software provider, has launched three new solutions aimed at easing the effort of regulatory compliance. The solutions were launched in late April 2019:
Next Generation Research & Alerts are layered on top of Nymity’s leading privacy research platform. Now, privacy professionals no longer need to search for topics, regions, or regulations and instead receive sophisticated alerts and push reporting. This is a welcome change as the previous solution required manual searching, investigation, and synthetization. Additionally, existing features such as The Breach Index, GDPR Monitor, and CCPA Monitor have been strengthened.
Following this announcement, many competitors in the GDPR compliance and privacy software categories will be interested in refining their service offerings.
