Compliance automation has transformed the way SaaS companies manage their information security compliance. Helping startups get SOC 2 and ISO 27001 compliant simply and efficiently through compliance automation is our mission and what we love to do!
However, we are never putting our feet up when it comes to the continuous improvement of our tool and its functionalities, as well as the development of more innovative features. Sometimes it is the finer details that make all the difference!
Below are some of our awesome product updates and enhancements to date. Keep an eye out for our regular product updates going forward!
More integrations mean more compliance automation!
Integrating with our customers’ entire technology stack is a huge priority for us, as the more they can integrate, the more automated processes they will enjoy. You can check out all our integrations to date, as well as those you can expect to see soon (and there are plenty!) so keep your eye out for new ones!
A few of the latest integrations that have been added to the pool are:
MongoDB: our customers use MongoDB as an external database management program.
GitLab: our customers use GitLab as their version control tool that combines the ability to develop, secure, and operate software in a single application.
GCP IAM: Google’s identity management enables Google administrators to authorize who can access specific Google Cloud resources.
Update on Slack integration: additions have been made to our existing Slack integration. When customers add comments in a task, control or policy, the relevant team member will get a comment notification with a direct link to the item. This update keeps all project members on track and alerted of important comments immediately.
Who said policy creation was that bad?
New policy editor
Implementing organizational policies is known to be quite the lengthy, administrative and tedious process. Our custom policy generator allows our customers to align their policies and procedures with our auditor-approved policy templates. We improved our existing policy editor with small improvements that make a big difference. This includes auto numbering and bullets, as well as the ability to add new or existing tables while working on your policy document. It may sound simple, however the new editor allows our customers to have a more simple and enjoyable experience when creating and implementing policies.
Policies connected to evidence
So your organization’s policies are created and implemented and all employees have signed the relevant policies. Now how do you collect this evidence for your audit? Policies are directly connected to evidence collection in the tool. This runs on a daily basis, so as soon as a user has signed a policy, the policy evidence will be automatically collected within 24 hours. This reduces our customers’ manual involvement when connecting internal modules to evidence creation.
Awesome new views!
We really want our customers to have clear insights and easy access to track and organize their evidence collection. With our improved view, customers’ evidence will now be split into relevant specific, smaller groups and displayed accordingly. Additionally, each evidence item also displays an evidence table and failed evidence chart. This allows our customers to gain a clear and improved overview, regarding tasks, evidence collected, and failed evidence.
Our customers love checking their dashboard! This is because it provides them with insightful, but clear results of their SOC 2 or ISO 27001 readiness status and a summary of their completed and outstanding tasks. In a nutshell, it tells customers where they currently stand. Our new and improved dashboard screen now allows users to gain an even better overview with all critical information being displayed graphically to the customer in the form of charts, tables, etc.
Customers need to understand the nitty gritty details of each control being audited and what evidence is required for each. The audit view explains all this kind of information for users. Furthermore, the new audit screen of each control criteria simplifies all necessary requirements and workflow for each control.
It is very important to us that our customers can integrate with their relevant tools fast and effortlessly. Improvements to our integration functionality allows for a significantly smoother connection flow to integrate each tool from start to finish, making the onboarding process for our customers a lot faster.
Security Awareness Training, anyone?
Our customers enjoy that all requirements for SOC 2 or ISO 27001 compliance, including Security Awareness Training, are all in one place within our tool. Enhancements to this feature offers a preview of the training and an easy connection to the relevant training of the SOC 2 and ISO 27001 frameworks. Additionally, a new table of results displays completion of the training for each employee. Importantly, the evidence file is automatically collected. After 12 months, the training expires, alerting our customers.
