Third Completed Acquisition in 2018 Brings Monthly Recurring Revenue, EBIT Contribution and Blue-Chip Clientele into Data443
RALEIGH, N.C. — October 25, 2018 — InvestorsHub NewsWire — LandStar, Inc. (OTCPK: LDSR) (“LandStar” or the “Company”), the parent company of Data443™ Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy company, announced the closing of the ARALOC™ acquisition.
Jason Remillard, Chief Executive Officer of LandStar and founder of Data443, commented, “We have closed the ARALOC deal and continue to extend our lead as the top Privacy Compliance product suite in the market. The acquisition of ARALOC adds an unmatchable capability to our growing portfolio of cloud, data and security services to meet the rapidly expanding consumer privacy market. Demand for consumer privacy solutions was ignited when congressional testimony brought to light the personal privacy violations inherent within the internet customer relationship practices of Fortune 500 companies like Facebook. LandStar is in a position to dominate that demand.”
The combined operations of the ARALOC™ platform provided (unaudited) EBIT contribution of approximately $500K USD in 2017 on roughly $600K in revenue. Extending the ARALOC technology to ClassiDocs and the 10,000+ existing active users of the WordPress GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Framework greatly expands the customer opportunity base for ARALOC.
“ARALOC delivers solid recurring revenue, exceptional margins and existing blue-chip customers and a substantial customer prospect list. When combined with the DATA443 distribution partners and over 40 channel partners, we are well positioned to take advantage of the growing opportunity in data security and privacy”, continued Remillard.
The spending for the California Privacy Act (and expected US-Wide implementation) is expected to reach multiples of the $8B already spent by EU companies readying for the GDPR. Data443 is positioning to take advantage of this with an all-encompassing Privacy Management & Governance capability.
ARALOC natively supports 4 articles of the GDPR – adding to Data443’s industry-leading support of 12 of the requirements. ARALOC is an industry-leading secure digital content distribution and communications platform that protects an organization’s confidential content and intellectual property assets from leakage – malicious or accidental – while enhancing communications and collaboration between all stakeholders.
ARALOC successfully competes in the growing Board Portal Software marketplace with Diligent, NASDAQ Boardvantage, BoardPaq and others. ARALOC has been included in numerous technology analyst recommendations since inception and is recognized as one of the industry’s first products to deliver on a SaaS-based approach with full encryption and digital rights management for type of digital content. Numerous global, multi-billion-dollar companies have regularly depended on ARALOC and its capabilities for over a decade.
