Ground Labs expands program, invites more partners into ecosystem
Ground Labs has unveiled the Ground Labs Data Discovery Network, its expanded program to further welcome distributors, resellers, integrators, consultants and alliance partners into its partner ecosystem.
Launched today, the Ground Labs Data Discovery Network enables partners to add data discovery and remediation to their existing solutions portfolios to build new revenue streams while helping their customers comply with national and regional privacy laws and data handling regulations, the company states.
Data discovery technology that locates sensitive or regulated data types to protect or securely remove the information is a critical tool for security teams compliance-readiness programs.
In 2021, cumulative regulatory fines from GDPR breaches alone topped 1.3 billion (approx. US$1.5 billion) prompting rapid growth in demand for data discovery, a market expected to double by 2025 as organisations are challenged to keep pace with a litany of compliance regulations.
Recognising this, Ground Labs aims to help organisations reduce potential liability and risk across regulatory and industry-specific frameworks including the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Ground Labs co-founder and chief evangelist Stephen Cavey, “Partnerships are a key foundation that Ground Labs was built on since the launch of our first product nearly 15 years ago.

Todd Moore, vice president of encryption products at Thales, a Ground Labs partner since 2019 says, “As the cloud and increased mobility have further expanded the boundaries of technology operations, organisations of all sizes need to quickly find and secure all the sensitive data within their systems, no matter where it resides within a data center or in a public or private cloud.
