Build a solid data foundation for your enterprise while managing privacy compliance


Privacy considerations require enterprises to adhere to a new standard of transparency. Using DataGrail, enterprises can identify and map applications and personal data; operationalize privacy requests; and manage company-wide communication preferences. DataGrail's privacy management platform discovers personal data wherever it is stored, across third-party applications, data lakes, and internal systems. DataGrail uses the live information to continually refresh a comprehensive Live Data Map as new systems and fields are added.

Okta + DataGrail work together to ensure your legal and security teams have accurate and up-to-date privacy information, while eliminating manual configurations and time-consuming data inventory surveys. Through a read-only API integration with DataGrail, Okta can further enrich the Live Data Map with authentications and additional information, giving legal and security teams visibility into sensitive data across your enterprise.

The Challenge

  • Privacy laws like GDPR, CCPA and CPRA continue to evolve, yet most technology platforms were designed and deployed at a time before these regulations existed.
  • Organizations are held accountable for complying with stringent and changing privacy requirements, too often relying on disparate, manual processes to try to keep up.
  • Understanding and managing privacy requests allowed by the new regulations, requires inventorying systems that contain personal data, and understanding where and how that data is used.
  • Email consent is often siloed by departments or systems—like marketing, customer service, and sales—so customer preference changes aren’t necessarily reflected everywhere.

The Solution

• Live Data Map - DataGrail is the only privacy platform that provides continuous system detection, delivering a real-time inventory of your data assets. DataGrail’s 300+ pre-built connectors combined with database and data lake integrations support data discovery of all personal data within your organization, creating a Live Data Map.

• Request Manager - Automate data subject requests for the GDPR, CCPA, and CPRA. Eliminate human-error and manual processing to protect your company’s brand and reduce risk. Request Manager fulfills Do Not Sell (DNS), access, and deletion requests. DataGrail’s proprietary identity verification improves the consumer experience, and streamlines the internal process.

• Preference Card - Without DataGrail, systems capture preferences in isolation, and an opt-out in a marketing system leaves that contact in other systems. DataGrail allows synchronizing preferences across all systems to improve the consumer experience.

How it Works

DataGrail’s no-code integration with Okta allows shared customers to automate data subject requests (DSRs & DSARs), without involving the Okta admin owner.

Reduce risk and ensure sustained compliance with evolving privacy laws

  • Combine industry-leading identity management with a purpose-built privacy management platform to secure and simplify preference management
  • Automate the discovery and mapping of personal data from third-party apps, data lakes, and internal systems for legal team visibility
  • Centralize privacy requests from all connected sources, so teams can address them globally and propagate changes across all systems
  • Provide users with easy-to-use tools to manage their own privacy requests, taking the burden off internal teams
  • Stay continuously compliant as privacy laws evolve, generating accurate real-time logs to demonstrate compliance and reduce risk
