2023 Year in Review: How Secureframe Is Empowering More Customers to Build Trust
At Secureframe, we’re dedicated to helping our customers save time and reduce risk while growing their business. That’s why we’re continuously finding ways to help customers automate tasks related to security, risk, and compliance.
As 2023 draws to a close, we want to reflect on some of the many milestones Secureframe has achieved as we advance this mission — all thanks to our employees, customers, partners, and investors.
This year, we continued to:
- Build AI-powered capabilities and other innovative solutions to reduce the effort and costs associated with maintaining a strong security compliance posture
- Collaborate with partners to share insights and best practices for simplifying risk and compliance management
- Be recognized as a leader in the GRC space for our efforts to empower businesses to build trust
Below are some of this year’s highlights.
Product launches and announcements
Our mission at Secureframe is to empower businesses to build trust by simplifying information security and compliance through AI and automation. This year, we expanded our AI capabilities and suite of modern governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions to enable our customers’ success. You can find a full list of product updates here or read the highlights below.
Comply AI for Remediation
Using infrastructure as code, Comply AI for Remediation provides precise and tailored remediation guidance so organizations can:
- Remediate cloud risk
- Improve their security and compliance posture
- Fix failing controls
By leveraging Comply AI, our customers can speed up time-to-compliance, differentiate themselves from competitors, and accelerate their growth.
Enterprise-grade Risk Management
As your business grows, so does your attack surface and risk exposure. Manually tracking risks in static spreadsheets and other traditional risk management processes are not enough to keep your business safe as it scales or to meet the risk management criteria for compliance frameworks such as SOC 2® and ISO 27001.
That’s why we introduced an enterprise-grade risk management tool that includes an AI-powered risk assessment workflow and an Enhanced Risk module that includes quantitative risk assessment, dashboards, and custom scoring.
Customers can now use the Secureframe API to integrate with any tool or service in their existing tech stack beyond our 200+ native integrations. This empowers them to:
- Create custom tools & scripts
- Save time
- Reduce human error
Custom controls, frameworks, and tests
Growing companies can now create and customize a compliance program to meet evolving security requirements with Secureframe's custom frameworks, custom controls, and test library. These changes, along with Secureframe’s intuitive compliance architecture, reduce the amount of manual work required for organizations to achieve compliance across one or multiple frameworks with ease, so they can focus on growing the business.
Today's customers and prospects want to know what measures your organization is taking to protect their data. That's why we built Secureframe Trust, a powerful solution that helps companies build confidence around security and privacy. Secureframe Trust can help you showcase your organization’s security posture, maintain a single source of truth on security information, and streamline the questionnaire response process.
Secureframe for MSPs
Secureframe for MSPs equips service providers, who are often already providing 24x7 monitoring and management of their customers’ network infrastructure, to help customers achieve and maintain security and privacy compliance to the most rigorous global standards, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, NIST CSF, and others.
European data center
European organizations are challenged with ensuring the data privacy of their customers and meeting evolving privacy standards like GDPR. To help address these challenges, Secureframe now offers data residency for European customers so they can choose where their data is stored and processed. This flexibility provides an easier way for UK customers to meet data privacy laws.
Our customers look to Secureframe as the most comprehensive automated security and compliance platform. Secureframe provides more than 200 native integrations to tools our customers use every day. Throughout the year, we’ve made several enhancements to existing integrations, including Office365, Azure Active Directory, JamfPro, and Amazon Inspector. We also announced integrations with AWS GovCloud to help meet the unique compliance requirements of government agencies and regulated industries and KnowBe4 to provide our customers with flexibility in their employee training solutions.
Customers looking to integrate with and pull evidence from a tool or service beyond our native integrations can use the Secureframe API.
Improved task tracking and notifications
To manage compliance, organizations must be able to track outstanding tasks, respond to issues, and collaborate efficiently. With our latest integrations, customers can now create tasks and send notifications via email, Slack, or Jira within the platform.
Improved policy management
To simplify policy management, we introduced AI-powered revisions and other updates to the Secureframe policy editor, including:
- Comprehensive and collaborative editing tools
- The ability to comment and upload one or more PDFs
- Read-only policies
Building policies for your organization is now easier than ever.
In addition to improving our product, here are some highlights of how we demonstrated our commitment to providing customers with the best experiences and resources in 2023.
