In force from May 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens protections for people submitting personal data. Companies and public authorities that receive such information had to meet new data processing, storage and security requirements. Swedish entrepreneur Anders Jonsson of Secure Appbox quickly realized that new tools would be necessary to meet the requirements, and began work on the GDPR Organizer platform, and started thinking about the product back in 2010. They started developing the platform in 2012. The platform enables small and medium-sized organizations to use one simple process to authenticate and protect the digital communications of employees, customers and partners, as well as handling personal data using secure e-services and apps, and managing consent from data subjects. This creates a basis for compliance with the regulation.
Secure Appbox received €300,000 in May 2015 from the EU’s InnovFin innovation financing instrument and a further €300,000 the following year. The company is now a European leader in its field and the platform was the first cloud service to receive GDPR specialist Privasee’s SEAL distinction for complying with the new EU data protection laws. It helps hundreds of organizations in more than 160 countries to communicate securely, regardless of time and location.
