The story

Our customer developed multiple SaaS Fintech platforms being used by financial institutions around the United States. As their business scaled over the years, they were approved by larger financial institutions that required compliance certifications from them in order to conduct business. Our customer needed to achieve SOC 2 Type 2 compliance in order to close larger deals and expand into more markets.  

Due to growth of people, technology, and processes as they grew, there were even more challenges in preparing them for a SOC 2 Type 2 audit.

  • Implementing corporate security policies when none previously existed 
  • Aligning the entire organization to a different method of operation 
  • Training all employees
  • Increasing security for cloud infrastructure environments which consisted of over 400 components 
  • Increasing security of applications 
  • Increasing security of mobile devices and remote worker technology 
  • Implementing compliance automation and related integrations 

Many new processes needed to be introduced for managing product infrastructure, personnel, vendors, data storage, digital security, product changes, and software codebase maintenance and operation. 

Varyence led the entire certification effort, engaging all necessary internal and external resources.

Our client successfully passed their SOC 2 Type 2 Audit in 2023 and we continue helping them maintain audit readiness for annual audit reviews.
