Strike Graph, a compliance automation startup, today announces the launch of its new Google Drive integration, the first of many integrations on its roadmap. Since most policy, process and business documentation sits within folders on a shared drive, this new integration offers a flexible means for simple audit evidence collection. Security audits, such as a SOC 2 or ISO 27001, can dramatically reduce a company’s enterprise sales. The process of compliance entails the manual collection of meeting notes, policy documents, change tickets and many other artifacts.
Strike Graph stores critical cybersecurity compliance evidence for their customers. This evidence is utilized by auditors to assess compliance. A large portion of the required evidence for SOC 2 or ISO 2700 includes a company’s policies, processes and operational documentation. This new Google Drive integration allows Strike Graph customers to connect any file in their Google Workspace to their cybersecurity evidence requirements. This integration is now available as a part of Strike Graph’s core service for all customers.
This form of broad integration allows Strike Graph users to take advantage of already effective practices and increases the efficiency and effectiveness of compliance. It has allowed CISOs, CTOs and Compliance Managers to achieve quicker and better quality compliance audits. Another added benefit of this integration is that it can keep sensitive cybersecurity information away from personal devices by directly connecting with the Strike Graph platform.
Strike Graph chose to focus its first integration on the most common document repository used by many organizations. The flexibility offered by integrating with Google Drive provides a right-sized solution as opposed to assuming that organizations have separate document repositories. Currently, Strike Graph customers are using this integration to collect 30% of evidence requirements. The solution is typically used to integrate the following types of evidence:
- HR Policies
- Cybersecurity Policies
- Vendor Contracts & NDA’s
- System Architecture Designs
- Employment onboard & offboard activity
“When we considered where the bulk of audit evidence is maintained, it was obvious that integrating with Google Drive offers a solution that is relevant to typical evidence. Unlike our competition, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all method to compliance. With this feature, our customers can develop any specific policies or procedures and the Strike Graph platform automatically retrieves that evidence over time,” said Justin Beals, CEO and co-founder of Strike Graph.
Strike Graph’s technology helps companies successfully pass their cybersecurity audit. Strike Graph customers can scope the correct size audit, dynamically adjust controls, and successfully complete and maintain security compliance with an internationally recognized auditor.
