Our Mission

THE MISSION OF PII TOOLS IS TO BRING MODERN AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY INTO THE WORLD OF DATA PRIVACY.

WE AIM TO EQUIP DATA SECURITY TEAMS, AUDITORS AND SECURITY PLATFORMS WITH SUPERIOR YET EASY-TO-USE SOFTWARE FOR DISCOVERY AND REMEDIATION OF SENSITIVE DATA.

What PII Tools brings to the game are powerful PII Analytics, powered by context-aware AI detectors that piece together PI no matter the data format, type or location.

Why do we do this?

  • Clarity and honesty. AI is quickly becoming a vacuous buzzword. As an AI-first company and world-leading experts, we think the cyber security world deserves better.
  • Focus on technology. Intelligent automation doesn't have to be a marketing after-thought. We bring over a decade of research excellence, award-winning open source software used by thousands of companies world-wide, and over a thousand peer-reviewed citations.
  • Passion for pragmatic solutions. With a strong background in IT services, we know how to listen to customers and combine quality engineering with cutting edge research.
