Piioneering PII Privacy

We could only tolerate so many headlines about breaches and stolen records. If sharing our data is necessary and inevitable, the safety of our sensitive information should be, too. This is at the core of our mission to help companies reestablish trust and drive a new culture of privacy for the cloud era.

Our Philosophy

We want to fundamentally redefine how personal information and user privacy are managed and secured. Piiano helps companies, at any size or stage, easily apply privacy by design for working with sensitive data. Embracing the shift left paradigm, we designed a dev-first product that also empowers CISOs and CPOs with the governance they need to keep sensitive data safe.

Security controls only partially protect our data. In practice, augmenting data with many security layers doesn’t solve the problem of data theft, security incidents and other threats. Establishing real consumer trust requires:

Shift Privacy Left

Make developers a key part of the privacy program by building in privacy requirements and discovering related issues pre-production.

Data Pseudonymization

Reduce the privacy risk of data-sets to zero by moving personal identifiers (PII) to our secure PII Vault.

We bring 40 years of combined practical and leadership experience in the security industry and have worked closely together for the last ten years. Our last company, NorthBit, was acquired by MagicLeap and became its product security division. We then found ourselves leading MagicLeap’s software security lifecycle globally, overseeing 700 engineers.

This experience gave us first-hand insight into how hard it is to practically shift security and privacy left when developers are already at capacity meeting other business needs. In building Piiano, we’re looking to bridge privacy capabilities organization-wide to ease the lives of developers, enable governance for CISOs and CPOs and finally keep our sensitive data secure.
