Today’s businesses face significant pressure to meet the ever-increasing privacy requirements of both regulators and the public. With the value of data increasing, the need for data protection only becomes greater – and more complex.


Hush-Hush is at the forefront of privacy protection with a PII data discovery and anonymization tool workbench that helps you comply with the requirements of GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, and more.


We stay ahead by building the technology you need to protect sensitive data such as PII and PHI based on current trends and advances in AI. Part of this involves writing sophisticated algorithms that target not only direct identifiers like social security numbers, credit cards, names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. but also indirect identifiers, for comprehensive coverage and protection, both on-premises and in the cloud.


As leaders in the data privacy space, we are proud to own several software patents, available exclusively to you.
