The Internet was built on the monetization of data: from individual’s social media posts to the digital activities of organizations. The activities and techniques of data brokers, the failure of net-neutrality have caused massive amounts of private data to be available for purchase and download. Worse yet, this information, when aggregated, can expose sensitive commercial, governmental or research data – creating enormous business and monetary risk by opening organizations, their employees and customers to targeting or data compromise.
PASSIONATE ABOUT PRIVACY. COMMITTED TO THE COMMON GOOD.
Grey Market Labs’ Innovation Fellows are 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, Grey Market Labs brings together experts from the commercial industry, academia and government to create software and hardware products to fill this trust, privacy and security gap. 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.
A LABORATORY OF SOLUTIONS. DEVELOPED FOR AN EVER-EVOLVING DATA PROTECTION ENVIRONMENT.
We believe that data security 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. Since the birth of the public internet in the 1990s, our Fellows have been exploring the world of data collection and privacy. We’ve spent the last 19 years working with real clients and formulating real solutions. Along the way, we’ve responded to emerging threats while developing a flexible platform that evolves to respond to the way clients work and the shifting digital environment.
Through hardware, software, and advisory and tradecraft 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.
