PrivaSapien says that its products have applications across sectors and are being currently used in industries handling sensitive personal data like healthcare, finance, telco and connected devices where analytics or cross-border data transfer play a key role.
Shilpa Kumar, Partner, Omidyar Network India said, "Given our ongoing focus on privacy-tech as an investor, we are delighted to see the evolution of market-led models like PrivaSapien. The work that Abhilash and team are doing will help businesses to enhance the privacy and safety of their customers in the digital economy.
