Fideslang

Fideslang image

Fideslang is a first-of-its-kind description language for privacy engineering; built to support all the data concepts necessary for describing a system under GDPR, CCPA, or LGPD.

It's extensible, so you can add data definitions to suit any business, and it's constructed to allow a natural understanding of any label for any user.

Fidesctl

Fidesctl image

Fidesctl is a modern framework for data teams to implement data privacy requirements using existing CI/CD tools. It comprises a command-line tool and server that, in combination, are the management application for the core privacy definition language.

Fidesctl lets engineers track privacy metadata directly in Git and automate privacy checks in the CI pipeline.

Fidesops

Fidesops image

Fidesops is built for data engineers with configurable scheduling, request execution, and webhook support to trigger internal services. It ensures timely, consistent, and safe enforcement of privacy rights across systems.

When a privacy request is sent to fidesops, it uses policies written in fideslang to generate a deterministic query plan to run across all connected systems, and fulfills the request according to the exact policy configured by the developer responsible.

Orchestrate with fidesops

Save thousands of hours a year on privacy rights fulfillment

It takes 83 hours and $1,700 to manually fulfill the average Data Subject Request. With Ethyca’s open-source data privacy tools, you can complete the same request in approximately 17.2 seconds. Fides programmatically orchestrates access and erasure across distributed systems to help you save time and increase efficiency at no incremental cost.

Catch non-compliant code before it's deployed

Fides replaces the need for clumsy review processes, including manual privacy code reviews by a legal stakeholder before shipping to production. To this end, GRC teams can collaborate with engineers to approve permitted policies in Fides that are enforced on the CI pipeline to ensure privacy risk is carefully managed in development.

Rest assured data never leaves your stack

Solving privacy problems shouldn't create security problems. In contrast to cloud-hosted SaaS privacy solutions, Fides lives on-premise in your stack. This means no data egress and no need to rely on a small third-party provider for hosting your company's most precious information.

  • Ethyca presents:

    Exploring policies in fidesctl

    Here’s a short video exploring a demo policy file in fidesctl; you’ll see how each policy comprises an array of rules for datasets described by fideslang.
  • Ethyca presents:

    Annotating data with fidesctl

    Here’s a short video on how to begin annotating data in fidectl using the annotate-dataset command in the CLI, with a data hierarchy visualizer.
Build for a world where privacy is table stakes
