Every company can accelerate compliance and streamline data collection for SOC 2, improving security for a cloud-first world
Seattle, Wash – May 5, 2021 – Shujinko, the pioneer in automated enterprise compliance, today announced that it is offering its SOC 2 compliance automation solution for free. Companies of all sizes can save potentially hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars by using Shujinko’s AuditX platform to automate data collection and streamline workflow for SOC 2 compliance audits at no cost. This free solution includes the full capabilities of AuditX for SOC 2, including all currently available automated evidence collectors across AWS, Azure and GCP, along with collectors for critical SaaS data repositories and applications such as Splunk, DataDog, Jira, Tenable, GitHub and many more, as well as offering full compliance audit management, evidence mapping and a centralized evidence repository.
SOC 2 has become table-stakes for showing security and compliance best practices for every company moving to the cloud, and Shujinko wants to do its part to make an increasingly cloud-first world more secure. Companies tasked with managing enterprise compliance across multiple audits and multiple frameworks beyond SOC 2 can also opt for a free 14-day trial to extend this same automated evidence collection and compliance workflow to cover the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), ISO 27001, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), NIST 800-53, IT General Control sets common to SOC 1 and SOX, and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Moreover, AuditX automatically maps and crosswalks evidence across frameworks, so companies that complete one audit can be 50-70% of the way to completing the next compliance framework no matter which compliance certification they tackled first.
“SOC 2 compliance is vital for every company active in the cloud; but by the same token preparation shouldn’t be so consuming as to take organizations off-mission, nor should certification be a pre-ordained rubber stamp,” said Shujinko CEO Scott Schwan. “For many companies – startups in particular – SOC 2 can become the stepping stone to more compliance and better security, and we think that’s an important thing to foster.”
SOC 2 is a compliance framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and specifically designed for service providers storing customer data in the cloud. That means it applies to nearly every SaaS company, as well as most other organizations active in the cloud. Unfortunately, cloud growth has caused security telemetry data to explode, making preparation for a SOC 2 compliance audit a huge undertaking that can easily take hundreds of person-hours away from enterprise security and DevOps teams, or derail a startup’s growth trajectory. Nearly all modern tech startups must achieve SOC 2 compliance to satisfy their customer’s requirements for data security, but startups often lack the time and compliance expertise to manage a SOC 2 audit. Shujinko’s AuditX platform fills this gap.
Both the free SOC 2 framework and the free 14-day trial for other frameworks are available now one the Shujinko.io home page.
