Annual list highlights the privacy company's DoNotTrackMe solution, which has blocked over 1 trillion attempts to track users' browsing worldwide and protected millions of users' personal information
BOSTON, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Abine, Inc., a Boston-based privacy company, today announced it has been named to Gartner, Inc.'s 2014 list of "Cool Vendors in Privacy Management, 2014" in recognition of its DoNotTrackMe product.
Each year, the list identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas Gartner sees as vital to the competitive landscape.
Abine's DoNotTrackMe product enables web users to block ad networks, social networks, and data collection companies from collecting and storing users' data, which many of these companies go on to either share or sell. What separates DoNotTrackMe from its competitors is its additional features that protect personal information like email address and credit card that is often compromised.
"We are extremely proud to be included in the Cool Vendor list and of the contribution our team is making to online privacy," says Rob Shavell, co-founder and CEO at Abine. "Online tracking tactics and technologies are rapidly changing, so tools like DoNotTrackMe are vital for users to control their privacy and protect their personal info on the web."
Garter selected its list of Cool Vendors in Privacy Management based on their ability to overcome challenges to good privacy protection, such as management of multijurisdictional compliance, awareness of consumer concerns, and efficient responses to breaches. Abine's DoNotTrackMe is a freemium product, and all of its revenue comes from consumers that choose to upgrade for premium features.
