Osano Applies for Certified-B Status

Osano recently released its SaaS privacy solution aimed at simplifying compliance and vendor assessments. The product feels familiar, but Osano’s ethical commitment sets it apart from the crowd.

In terms of features, Osano has many things to offer: consent management, vendor risk monitoring, alerts for legal developments, and available support from privacy experts. Overall, Osano is similar to other products in the privacy space, like OneTrust or Proteus.

What sets Osano apart is that the company has applied for status as a Certified B Corporation, which is conferred upon companies that “meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.” This is something that differentiates Osano from the major players in the field.

This level of commitment shows that Osano is not just another corporation in the privacy business and supports co-founder and CEO Arlo Gilbert’s assertion that “data privacy is a fundamental human right.”

Our Take

It’s difficult to fully sign-off on the software without a full test, but Osano is definitely putting its money where its mouth is as far as committing to ethical data collection and storage practices.

Likeminded organizations would do well to pay attention to Osano, especially since the solution stands to help them get ahead of the data-privacy revolution already underway (which we should all be doing anyway).
