Glooko, a prominent provider of cloud-based software for remote patient management, is pivotal in improving the care of individuals diagnosed with type one or type two diabetes. The sensitive nature of the patient data they handle, safeguarding security, and ensuring compliance have
always been a paramount concern.
Having already achieved SOC 2 Type 2 and I certifications the previous years through in-house mechanisms, Benjamin Chang, as Glooko’s VP of Security and IT Operations, recognized the need to efficiently manage the adherence and operational control evidence through a software compliance platform.
For Glooko, the key features and benefits of Akitra’s Andromeda platform include:
Application Integrations: Andromeda’s seamless integration with various applications allows evidence collection automation, eliminating manual data uploads.
Task Assignments: Andromeda facilitated the assignment of compliance tasks to specific team members, simplifying progress tracking and alerting.
Centralized Repository: Andromeda serves as a centralized repository for compliance-related evidence, obviating the need for Glooko to create and manage its storage. This streamlined the auditing process and improved accessibility for auditors.
Having done a bakeoff amongst competitive technologies, Glooko chose Akitra’s Andromeda platform to achieve these goals of efficiency and automation. Achieving SOC 2 compliance not only reinforced their commitment to data security and privacy but also positioned them as a trusted partner for their customers, bolstering their reputation in the industry.
