Osmos is in the business of data. The platform ingests millions of data points from hundreds of types of infrastructure and services.
Osmos knew they couldn’t close deals without compliance.
“Customers put all sorts of very sensitive data through our systems,” says Pandya. “Every mid- to large-size customer asks you for compliance. The truth of the matter is the market demands proof of compliance, and if you don't have it, you're not going to close deals. We wouldn’t be able to continue to grow as a business.”
Despite the importance of compliance, managing the process internally was not feasible for the organization. Pandya knew it would take too long given their complex system, which has many different and evolving points of data entry.
“Just collecting an inventory of systems would take us three days of screenshots in GCP to do it, to give it to the auditor,” he says.
So, as they set out to achieve SOC 2 Type I, Osmos began to search for the right partner.
