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.

  • CLI tools for privacy request orchestration as code
  • Open-source Privacy Center for request intake
  • Management UIs for E2E open-source subject rights

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 in the CI pipeline to ensure privacy risk is carefully managed in development.

  • Define privacy policies as code in Fides language
  • Evaluate privacy risk as part of CI workflows
  • Remove privacy siloes between legal & eng teams
Engineer with confidence

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.

  • Self-hosted open-source privacy platform
  • Eliminate risk of data egress
  • Avoid new privacy risk in pursuit of compliance
