The Internet was built on the monetization of data: from individuals’ social media posts to organizations’ digital history. The activity of data brokers and the failure of net-neutrality enables the exploitation of billions of people’s data. Worse yet, data brokers aggregate and analyze individuals’ private information, creating complex profiles that are no longer anonymous. This practice can expose sensitive information — creating enormous business and monetary risk for corporations and their customers from exploitation or data compromise.
PASSIONATE ABOUT PRIVACY. COMMITTED TO THE COMMON GOOD.
Grey Market Labs is dedicated to protecting people and organizations at every level from the risks of living life online. We believe we have a responsibility to lead in the world. Organized as a Public Benefit Corporation, our business is driven by the social mission of protecting life online for people and organizations—not simply the bottom line. In a grey world where not all data collection is bad, or even unavoidable, we give individuals the tools to navigate their way through — all while protecting their privacy.
LED BY INNOVATION FELLOWS. DEDICATED TO SOLVING EVER-EVOLVING SECURITY THREATS.
We believe that data security and preventing data compromise isn’t a problem that will be solved today. Or even tomorrow. Rather, it’s an ongoing challenge that Grey Market Labs was created to address. Our Fellows are composed of experts from the commercial industry, academia and government who are passionate about creating software and hardware products to fill the trust, privacy and security gap for people and organizations.
Since the birth of the public internet in 1990s, our Fellows have been exploring the world of data collection and privacy. We’ve spent the last 17 years working with real clients and formulating real solutions. Along the way, we’ve responded to emerging threats while developing a flexible platform that can evolve to respond to the way clients work, and the shifting digital environment.
Through hardware, software and advisory services, we have developed a robust portfolio of patented solutions to help organizations actively manage data collection from employee online behavior and prevent digital exploitation.
Grey Market Labs was founded to address the massive gaps in the protections and tools that currently exist. Our patented platform solves these problems with a unique approach, focusing on four principles.
Sophisticated digital security is no longer just a worry of governments and intelligence agencies. In recent years, our Fellows have been called on to bring their deep well of experience combating our country’s most difficult foes to augment the growing privacy data protection needs of private sector companies, IT teams, their customers and employees.
THE BROWSER IS NOT ENOUGH
Isolation is great. But focusing exclusively on the browser limits protections. Our platform supports tools, apps and multiple modalities for comprehensive protections.
REAL BEATS ANONYMOUS
Within a few years, anonymous browsing will no longer work online. Our virtural platform provides realism and protections that are easy to scale.
ENTERPRISE NEEDS AUTONOMY
Enterprise systems need automation for scaling, maintenance, security and recovery. Our system gives administrators automated tools to reduce their security workload.
HUMANS MAKE MISTAKES
People are the top cause of data breaches. We embed best-practices and security tradecraft in our products, increasing protections of corporate data and assets.
