SaaStr Annual 2022 – Trustero, an innovator in Compliance as a Service (CaaS) for emerging enterprises, announced a complete bundle for startups to get SOC ready and complete a SOC 2 report.

Completing a SOC 2 audit can be time-consuming and costly. Not having the internal resources to support an effective SOC 2 effort can make compliance even more challenging.

“White Glove” Service Removes All Audit Complexities
Trustero Compliance as a Service (CaaS) is cloud-based, easy-to-use compliance automation software. It is designed to simplify SOC 2 audit readiness and enable continuous compliance. The Trustero customer success team leverages the platform to support customers quickly and effectively and take them through the entire SOC 2 audit process to a final report. Auditors have trained the Trustero team to take the guesswork out of what is needed for SOC 2 compliance. In addition, the team works with our auditor partners to ensure the path to a SOC 2 report is seamless.
“We are excited to be an auditor partner of Trustero to make SOC 2 reachable and affordable for startups,” said Felipe Saboya Gomez, partner, technology risk assurance and tax for Insight Assurance. “Removing the hurdles to complete a SOC 2 will open the door to many companies without internal resources or time.”
Quicker Time to SOC 2
With this new offering, Trustero can take a company from readiness to report in as little as half the time required with other approaches. Trustero Compliance as a Service increases the efficiencies for our auditor partners. This reduces the time needed to get “audit-ready” and complete an audit. Our auditor partners are trained on our platform, which increases overall efficiencies.
The Trustero solution includes auditor-approved controls and auditor-vetted policy templates. In addition, the Trustero platform uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically map controls, policies, and evidence. The platform then makes AI-powered evidence suggestions based on what has been accepted in previous peer audits. This reduces the back and forth with an auditor required with manual evidence discovery and collection and the time spent guessing what will be accepted.
