Presenting … the TROPT Privacy Tech Database
A free, public resource listing privacy tech companies and their privacy tech product categories, for investors, prospective user-buyers, and anyone interested in finding privacy tech solutions
Originally published on The Rise of Privacy Tech website.
As some of you may know, last month, we at The Rise of Privacy Tech (TROPT) published the TROPT Defining the Privacy Tech Landscape Whitepaper 2021, the foundational whitepaper on the privacy tech landscape.
Today, as an offshoot of the work we’ve done to define and categorize the emerging privacy tech landscape, we make publicly available the TROPT Privacy Tech Database. It is a free, public resource listing privacy tech companies and their privacy tech product categories. We make it available for investors, prospective user-buyers, and anyone interested in finding privacy tech solutions.
Why the TROPT Privacy Tech Database?
The short answer: to provide a valuable but scalable resource for the TROPT privacy tech investors, prospective user-buyers, and advocates.
The TL;DR: we found ourselves fielding hundreds of inquiries about what privacy tech product(s) are available in which categories. These inquiries came from privacy tech investors, prospective user-buyers, and advocates. Investors want a better understanding of what privacy tech solutions already exist in the market. Prospective privacy tech user-buyers want to know if there are existing privacy tech solutions to their biggest technical privacy problems. And privacy tech advocates want to know what privacy tech solutions are available for them to recommend to their clients or the public in general.
Most notably, several privacy tech key players complained to us that existing lists of privacy tech vendors and their products are inaccurate, incomplete (e.g. only covering B2B enterprise privacy tech vendors), or simply don’t make sense in their categories.
