About Us


We are a security software company dedicated to making sensitive data discovery products that help organisations prevent sensitive data loss. Our flagship products, Card Recon, Data Recon and Enterprise Recon, have helped more than 2,500 organisations in 80 countries discover sensitive PII and cardholder data in documents, databases, emails, log files and many other locations.

  • We are an international company with offices in Austin, Dublin and Singapore.
  • We focus on what we do best: sensitive data discovery and nothing else.
  • We were founded in 2007 and launched our first product in 2008 during the GFC, which never held us back.
  • We have positive cash flow, no debt, and no external venture capital - we fund all our growth organically from sales revenues.
  • We are 100% privately owned by the founders, who form a core part of the company management team.


Developing products to discover sensitive data requires a special kind of expertise. At Ground Labs, we won't write a single line of code until a product has been designed and architected to meet our demanding standards for efficiency, functionality and security.

Our experienced team emphasises solid technical design and engineering to produce products that:

  • Deliver accuracy that is unmatched by any of our competitors.
  • Utilise computer resources, including CPU and memory, in the most efficient way.
  • Ensure our products are free from unnecessary bloat or unreasonable dependencies.
  • Work out of the box every time, without the need for customisation.


The Ground Labs team is made up of security software professionals spanning three continents, each a professional of his/her craft. Our demanding recruitment process pushes the technical boundaries and problem-solving capabilities of even the most experienced candidates, giving us a highly capable team with specialities in:

  • High Performance Antivirus Pattern Matching.
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention.
  • Electronic Payment Processing.
