A case of Drata’s all-in-one platform serving as the perfect solution for a user-friendly compliance journey.

The Challenge

As an early-stage startup, we realized SOC 2 Type 2 was a necessity in driving larger customers and elevating our security and data privacy. It’s a key item on our customer’s checklists, and without it, you can’t have much of a conversation. And because our team is focused on growth and product build, we were looking for a solution that streamlined the compliance process for us.

Why Drata?

Drata was the perfect solution for us. The platform offered an intuitive and well-designed experience customized to our needs, with thorough documentation, a seamless ability to export reports, and a friendly support team that guided us along the way to achieve SOC 2 Type 2. Since Drata’s platform is user-friendly, anyone with any level of technical expertise can understand and navigate the process.

The Experience

As a small-but-mighty team, having everything we needed to obtain SOC 2 Type 2 in one platform was a game changer. Drata’s continuous monitoring and real-time checklists ensured we were on the right path, and the integrated dashboard allowed us to divide and conquer among our technical and non-technical team instead of having one person saddled with the entire process.

Being our first experience with a SOC 2 audit, Drata saved us ample time by creating the policy templates for us, monitoring our integrations, and creating an easily accessible channel for auditors to obtain necessary information without manually extracting it ourselves.

What’s Next for Ariglad?

Achieving SOC 2 Type 2 with Drata allows us to pursue a different and larger caliber of customers. Now, we’ll be continuously maintaining our compliance practices, policies, and architecture while still being able to constantly focus on improving our product.

I can't think of how difficult achieving SOC 2 compliance would have been without Drata. Paired with Drata's incredibly helpful team, the all-in-one platform gave us everything we needed for a successful report while still growing the business. Choosing Drata was a worthy investment for us and really allowed us to showcase our commitment to security for our ever-growing portfolio of customers.
