The Irish AI security company, Getvisibility, has developed an AI-powered platform for data discovery, classification, security, and governance. The company is planning for global expansion as it announces the opening of a new San Francisco office.
Founded by Mark Brosnan and Ronan Murphy, Getvisibility works with several Fortune 500 companies and governments across Europe and the US. Getvisibility uses state-of-the-art AI to classify and secure documents and emails in real-time. Getvisibility’s dual approach to data classification allows staff to manually classify documents as they are created with suggestions and automated checking, while the machine learning algorithms scan, categorize, and classify legacy data.
Getvisibility allows security, governance, risk, and compliance teams to define protected surfaces, create concise and accurate data security and compliance reports, and automate GDPR SAR requests which require a response within one month. This approach significantly reduces the complexity of data loss prevention and the rate of false-positive alerts.
In total, Getvisibility has raised over $13 million to date, including a successful $10 million Series A funding round in March 2022. The funding has been primarily used to grow the Getvisibility workforce by 400% in the past 18 months, including the recruitment of an expert team of engineers and data scientists.
“When you consider that IBM reports the average cost of a data breach in the US as being $9.44 million, action is clearly needed. To meet this growing demand in the US and across the other markets in which we operate – including Ireland and the UK – we are investing in our team, offering, and presence,” commented Jacinta Tobin, chief operating officer (COO), Getvisibility.
Getvisibility has established a customer foundation in the US by securing major contracts with large enterprises across highly regulated industries such as finance, defense, pharma, biotech, automotive, and manufacturing. To support these customers and enable its growing global network of vendor and reseller partners, the company is also planning to further expand its teams in both the US and Europe, Middle East, and Africa region (EMEA). Adding to an existing presence in Ireland and the UK, Getvisibility’s new facility is conveniently located in the central San Francisco area where operations will be led by recently appointed COO, Jacinta Tobin.
“Underpinned by the right expertise through our personnel and partnerships with industry leaders, we will be at the heart of a new era in data management and security. Not only does this help our customers to successfully manage unstructured data, it enables us to drive our own success as a business,” said Tobin.
To continue its mission for growth, over the next 12 months, Getvisibility plans to hire Data Security Architects, Support Engineers, Data Quality Assurance Managers, Data Scientists, Software Engineers, Sales Engineers, and Project Managers at all experience levels. Open roles currently include a Senior Product Marketing Manager and a Senior Sales Engineer.
“Enterprise Ireland is delighted to see Getvisibility further expand its presence with a US office. Getvisibility’s advanced AI solution for data security and compliance is uniquely suited to meet the requirements of US businesses. Enterprise Ireland is proud to support the company’s growth in the region,” added Killian McMahon, Head of US West Coast at Enterprise Ireland.
Getvisibility’s technology is transforming the data security industry and setting a new standard for innovation. Enterprise Ireland’s support will continue to contribute to the expansion as they grow in the US.
