About Us

Let's Engineer privacy and data Security
into every data stack

Our Purpose

We are on the mission to unlock the world’s data by making data privacy, data security, and governance rock solid and effortless  


Bringing Engineering to Data Privacy and Governance

As engineers, we are interested in finding practical solutions more than academic research. We are inventing ways to solve privacy and data protection at scale.

For us, engineering is a mindset. The engineering mindset doesn’t require a formal engineering degree or training. We define engineering mindset: Do you have the courage to tackle challenging problems? Are you excited about solving a problem elegantly and practically?

Many find challenging problems daunting, but we get excited at the adventure. At Protecto, we are tackling one of the transformational problems. Innovations in car safety, such as seatbelts, have enabled us to go fast. Likewise, solving privacy and protecting data would accelerate data-driven innovation by 100x.
