Every brand you interact with on a daily basis is pushing out software updates that rely on your data. Are they keeping your privacy safe while creating your apps?

An industry is emerging to allow developers to create all the functionality we appreciate in our apps while keeping our data safe. That solution is fake data.

Imagine a generator that creates datasets so convincingly an experienced developer can’t tell the difference — a platform that performs the work of a team of engineers for brands with datasets as large as 8 PB. Does your brand have the safe data it needs? If you don’t know, come find out how you too can fake your data.
