AristaMD saves 30% of time spent preparing for its SOC 2 Type 2, while enhancing the quality of the company’s audits
AristaMD reduced their SOC 2 preparation time significantly with the use of Ostendio.
Now that AristaMD can easily collaborate with A-LIGN within the platform and reduce the need to manually compile and demonstrate evidence, Nathlich attributes at least a 30% savings of time and related costs to prepare for a SOC 2 audit.
A process that once required hours to prepare and assign evidence is now streamlined, and has made subsequent decisions more predictable and stress-free. As a result, Nathlich can now devote more time to DevOps while maintaining confidence in the audit results.
“My team is responsible for security and infrastructure, as well as compliance. For us to be able to handle the breadth of all those disciplines wouldn’t be possible without the kind of efficiencies we get out of Ostendio,” Nathlich said.
Beyond completing the SOC 2, AristaMD also works with Ostendio Professional Services to complete other risk exercises and framework preparation, including completing a Business Continuity Plan and HITRUST readiness. Ostendio's Crosswalk functionality and Ostendio’s engagement in these processes have further increased efficiencies and created less redundant tasks for the organization.
While Ostendio has significantly helped speed up AristaMD’s SOC 2 and other compliance audits, Nathlich says he’s confident that the integrity of its reports remains intact.
“When you have a hosted collaborative process, you learn more about it, you have a better idea of what’s going on, you understand what controls are there and what they’re there for,” Nathlich said.
Ostendio has also brought certainty and confidence to AristaMD’s SOC 2 completion and recommends the platform to any organization that wants to justify its SOC 2 or regulatory compliance.
According to Nathlich, Ostendio’s platform just adds a unique level of care to compliance and security.
