Why is Scrut the go-to-solution for CTOs for their compliance needs?

Recently, we conducted a survey asking our customers about the reasons for choosing Scrut for their compliance requirements.

They told us the following reasons for their choice.

1. Scrut reduces tool fatigue

Scrut cloud diagnostic tool covers a wide gamut of resources, such as compute, databases, serverless, containers, etc. Therefore, our customers don’t require separate tools like CSPM, CIEM, SCA, etc.

Scrut cloud diagnostic tool goes deep, covering 100% of the CIS benchmarks (over 200) across popular cloud service providers. On the other hand, our peers in the space mainly check for the bare minimum SOC 2 requirements (around 50 CIS benchmarks).

This is validated by our customer base, which consists of companies with vast and complex cloud infrastructure, such as Leadsquared, Qapita, Darwinbox, etc. 

  • LeadSquared – 1400+ employees
  • Darwinbox – 1000+ employees
  • Qapita – A fintech company 

2. Scrut provides all compliance resources in one platform

With Scrut, you get everything you need to get compliant

Along with the compliance automation tool, you get access to the following:

  • Help with gaps assessment
  • Pre-built policy templates tailored to your requirements
  • Best-in-class auditors, like BSI, EY, and RiskPro
  • Penetration testers, including red-team testers

Besides this, we even manage your SLAs with the above partners and represent you during the external audit/s. This means you don’t need to take on the headache of answering the auditor’s questions.

In short, Scrut takes care of everything you need to get and stay compliant.

3. Scrut eliminates duplication of efforts and reduces standards fatigue

We help you get compliant with over 20 frameworks, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, NIST 800, GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, CMMC, PCI DSS, and FedRAMP, off the shelf. This means that when you are going for multiple standards and regulations, you don’t need to worry about duplication of efforts. Scrut automatically maps artifacts to all the standards you want to comply with. 

For example, if you create a critical policy through Scrut’s policy manager, say the Access Control Policy, it’ll automatically get mapped to relevant ISO 27001 control and SOC 2 criteria. You need not worry about creating and mapping the policy twice for both standards separately.

And we set this up very swiftly. For one of our customers that works with US federal agencies, it took us 3 business days to set up 11 frameworks

Below is a dashboard from one of our customers, which gives a clear picture of readiness across multiple standards. 

4. We hold ourselves accountable till the end 

Our customers have a 100% audit success rate. This is because, before going for the external audit, we conduct very rigorous internal audits to ensure that our customers can pass the audit in one go.

Scrut’s founding team has experience conducting 3000+ assessments across the globe over the last 15 years. Additionally, the InfoSec delivery team consists of folks from the Big Four. 

With Scrut, you get hand-holding throughout your compliance journey. We don’t just leave you with a tool. We put our skin in the game!

Our payments are performance-based, and we get paid when the audits are successful and certificates are issued. We’ll ride with you till the end of the line.

5. Scrut has the most transparent, real-time audit logs and monitoring dashboards

Scrut connects with your existing tools, like cloud service providers, identity providers, MDM, task tracking tools, code version controls, HRMS, SSOs, and more.
