Traditional HIPAA, HITRUST, and SOC 2 Compliance Pain Points
Lack of Compliance Expertise
Engineering teams don’t always have an overwhelming amount of compliance experience, nor should they necessarily be compliance experts to begin with. Datica’s platform has all the expertise built-in so your developers feel empowered to deploy compliant solutions with confidence. This keeps your main initiatives in focus, rather than having to devote resources to compliance.
Missing Information Security Infrastructure
There are so many pieces to the infrastructure puzzle when using the cloud, but Datica helps you identify compliance gaps and helps make sure your compliance stature is strong out of the gate. Implementing compliance as a baseline to your development efforts is a failsafe against having to possibly rearchitect later, creating a lot unnecessary efforts and headaches.
Certification preparation tends to be the most involved part of the compliance process because it encapsulates:
With Datica, you’re able to bypass many of the mundane, albeit critical, pieces that go into certification preparation like: writing many of your policies and procedures, updating those policies and procedures regularly, collecting screenshots for evidence and sending them to your auditor, and more.
By automating the compliance process we help our customers save between 3 and 12 “person months” of labor and accelerate time to market by at least 45 days.
Your Compliance Vendor Options In The Market
Across the compliance landscape you will see a plethora of vendors saying they'll make sure you are compliant in the cloud – mainly managed service providers and integrated compliance vendors.
Managed Service Providers
- The most hands-off, expensive, and lowest-visibility vendor approach. Your team is outsourcing your architecture, performance, and software update designs. When your designs change, your team needs to communicate those changes to your provider via a change order. Each of these change orders will be billed at prevailing rates. You are beholden to the provider and their delivery timelines.
Integrated Compliance Vendors
- The promise of these solutions is that you'll be able to hook up your current technology stack and their software will tell your team what you need to go fix and where to fix it. While generally the least expensive option and doesn't include compliance as a baseline for your organization. This options also doesn't save you time actually having to do those compliance activities or prevent you from deploying in a non-compliant manner.
- By doing compliance yourself, there are two main routes: spending a significant amount of time doing research on your desired compliance framework and going through the motions of demonstrating adherence or hiring in-house technologists specializing in security and compliance (which is going to be a long shot without forking out a serious amount of cash in the process). Plus, you're stuck updating everything with the latest compliance framework changes or technology requirements each time they happen.
Finding The "Sweet Spot" of Compliance
Instead of outsourcing the great majority of your core development work to bodies and spreadsheets or getting a fancy, integrated checklist tool that really only gives you visibility toward your compliance stature – take a different path and utilize an automated solution that enables your team to be successful with compliance anchoring your preferred development processes. In the long run, architecting with compliance (and an infrastructure design you own) will save you thousands of dollars and endless hours.
Why Automation Works With Datica
Certainty of Outcome
Our compliance conformance packs won’t allow you to deploy production solutions that are not compliant against your desired framework. The evidence and logging data you need is automatically collected for HITRUST (or the specific compliance framework in that environment, such as SOC 2 or PCI). You will get to certification or completed attestation with Datica.
Reduce Your Compliance & Security Scope
Automation provides a lot of benefits for compliance, but one of the lesser discussed items is how automation reduces your scope of compliance activities by an order of magnitude. Instead of having your development team maintain compliance configurations, our platform checks against 250+ configurations each time you make a change in your AWS account.
Reduced Certification Preparation Timeline
Instead of doing all the certification preparedness activities yourself and possibly letting the project costs blow up, you can shave months off preparing for an assessment by automating policy generation and evidence gathering.
Gets You Back to Doing What You Love
Let us handle the toughest aspects of compliance in the background while you get back to developing solutions that make a difference. Don’t waste your time with a subpar compliance solution that causes your team more headaches than benefits.
