Speed and time savings was a priority for Akooda when getting ready for SOC 2. Given they’re a small team, they couldn’t afford to have their engineers and teammates spending more time than necessary on SOC 2. Secureframe allowed them to halve the time they were initially spending with another vendor on getting SOC 2 ready.
“Our product tracks company-wide share of attention across different applications and communication channels. Secureframe literally gave us more than half our time back when it came to getting SOC 2 ready versus other vendors. That’s huge in terms of allowing our team to focus on building our company."
"Plus, you can clearly see the massive difference Secureframe made in terms of streamlining the process. They allowed us to get ready in just 2 weeks with a significant reduction in effort required by our team.”
Getting SOC 2 ready can often take months for many companies, but with Secureframe’s help, Akooda was ready in just a couple of weeks. They went into their audit confident that Secureframe set them up for success and are standing by them for any additional support they need.
Another huge benefit for Akooda was accelerating deal cycles and being able to approach larger companies.
“We can approach larger companies and move a lot quicker. And, we don’t need to do a bunch of security questionnaires anymore. We can simply show our SOC 2 report and keep the process moving.”
Finally, getting SOC 2 ready allowed Akooda to improve their overall compliance posture. They have right controls, onboarding, and offboarding processes in place.
With their SOC 2 report in hand and Secureframe’s software continuously monitoring and maintaining Akooda’s SOC 2 compliance, Akooda can focus on building their product, growing their business, and not worry about falling out of compliance.
“If you’re considering SOC 2, go with Secureframe. It’s the personal care they provide. They try harder. They’re on our side. And they were with us every step of the way to make sure we got our SOC 2 report. Not once did I feel like we were left hanging.” Yuval Gonczarowski, Founder and CEO, Akooda
