Founder Statement

We've spent years in information governance, watching organizations trying and failing to deal with their runaway unstructured data using home-grown or re-purposed technologies. We know that unstructured data requires special attention because it has unique characteristics and is in a constant state of change. We also know that organizations who want to become good data stewards cannot, and will not, continue to ignore this important asset.

This is why we have made Zero Dark Data our North Star Mission. Every day we work towards making the discovery and control of unstructured data easier and more efficient. Whether it be for regulatory compliance, customer confidence, business efficiency or to drive new value, Zero Dark Data is a destination we believe all of our customers should be seeking.

Nick Oldham
"For one site, in terms of labor savings, it would have taken a human over 9 years to accomplish what we did in a few months. For me, it’s not even about the cost savings, it’s that an actual physical human being couldn’t do this."
