Automation saves time and $$$: Automated evidence collection from workstations, servers and cloud services ensures continuous monitoring and continuous gathering of evidence – far more comprehensively, efficiently and cost-effectively than trying to do so manually. Akitra achieves this through integration with all the audit-relevant services, such as the HR service, the DevOps system, and cloud services platforms such as AWS / Azure / GCP.
Support for multiple frameworks: Built to support multiple frameworks, including SOC 1, SOC 2, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, HIPAA and GDPR. Having one platform for all of them reduces learning time for customers and auditors alike. It also ensures consistent and sustainable compliance processes while saving vast amounts of time and expense – for years to come!
Ease of Use: An easy to use, well-structured and largely automated process guides you through the compliance process from initial setup all the way through to a completed audit report.
Policies and controls in a box: Includes customizable templates for policies and controls. Enables companies without such documents and processes to quickly put the necessary framework in place for audit readiness.
Collaboration: Enables easy communication between all the company team members involved in the audit, and between the auditor and the company’s compliance coordinator. Shared comments and task notifications keep everyone on the same page.
Single source of truth: Acts as a single repository of all compliance-related policies, controls, evidence, and reports. Eliminates wasted time and having to start from scratch with every new audit.
Efficient auditing: An auditor portal allows auditors to efficiently access all relevant documents and complete the audit process efficiently. Almost all of the final SOC 2 report can be generated from the Akitra service, including details of how the company is meeting the compliance criteria, what tests the auditor has performed, and what the results were. It also includes narrative explanations of the company structure, system architecture and processes. These efficiency gains mean smaller invoices from auditors!
Broadest scope and flexibility for your evolving needs: 95+ third party integrations, more than any other compliance vendor; seven compliance frameworks supported; product customizability to choose the UI color theme you prefer.
Continuous monitoring for continuous compliance: Becoming compliant with SOC 2 Type 1 at a point in time is a great first step. But, to move on to SOC 2 Type 2 requires showing continuous compliance over a period of months. Only automated monitoring and continuous evidence collection make that possible.
Expert support and guidance: Akitra provides more than just an automated compliance platform. The service also includes regular access to compliance experts to guide you through the compliance process, from onboarding through crossing the compliance finish line – and beyond. We make sure you succeed.
