With only six months in the market, Pridatect already has more than 200 clients that in turn have adapted the new GDPR to more than 1,500 companies in Spain.

Until recently, regulatory compliance was complex and slow due to the amount of documentation required by the new GDPR, which also requires keeping all information updated in a secure environment.
