How Deel Took Their Information Security Compliance To The Next Level With Scytale

Deel is the leader in payroll and compliance automation for international teams, helping thousands of companies across the globe streamline hiring, contracts, compliance and payments. Established in 2019, Deel entered unicorn territory in 2021.


Deel wanted to double down on ensuring customer data protection by complying with the globally-recognized information security standard, SOC 2. Getting SOC 2 compliant was a way to elevate trust with their customers and prospects, as well as advance their security across all areas, including HR, operations and systems. Deel knew that SOC 2 would demand an enormous amount of preparation, dedication and time from their team, and so, in order to ensure that day-to-day work process could continue running as usual and that company growth would not be negatively affected, they turned to Scytale to help them streamline the SOC 2 compliance process.

Preparing for our SOC 2 audit was smooth sailing with Scytale. They helped us streamline the entire SOC 2 process by providing us with expert knowledge and technology to maintain indestructible security systems and protocols. They shared valuable insights about our current security posture as well as best ongoing practices for our data security systems to help us better protect our customers’ confidential data and keep our systems performing properly.
