Exo provides solutions to large healthcare providers requiring their vendors to comply fully with frameworks such as SOC 2, HIPAA, and ISO 27001 in international markets. Supporting multiple frameworks can cause compliance complexity and duplication of effort – which could have imposed a significant burden on Exo and potentially lead to go-to-market delays for its highly innovative, AI-enabled medical imaging solution.
Exo selected Akitra as its compliance automation partner because of its ability to support multiple compliance frameworks with standard controls. Akitra provided a customizable set of controls that allowed Exo to take advantage of policy and control commonalities across frameworks.
Akitra, as part of its platform’s integrations with several cloud services provider, integrated with Exo’s systems. Once in place, these integrations enable continuous monitoring and compliance evidence collection.
With the help of Akitra’s compliance automation solution, Exo could accelerate the time required to obtain the necessary compliance certifications.
“I am looking forward to even greater efficiency gains in the future as we take advantage of Akitra’s integrations with more of the cloud services we use,” added Patel. “This will provide a cost-effective solution to expedite our future compliance certifications.”
