Establishing Market Leadership in Security with the SOC 2
In talking to customers and prospects and doing its own research, Sitrion discovered that going through a Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 compliance assessment and report would be the most effective way to put clients’ minds at ease.
“As we continued to try to understand how customers were making their decisions around mobility and security, we eventually came across the SOC 2, which is a clear standard that has a good heritage in the industry with auditable processes and controls, and it seemed like this was a reasonable standard that made sense for us to pursue,” Kellner said.
The next stage of research involved finding a company that could help Sitrion take right steps towards implementing the SOC 2. The company reached out to several peers, and Schellman & Company kept coming back as a standout among organizations that offer services around security certifications and reports. With so many referrals, it took Sitrion only two weeks to choose Schellman—it wasn’t long until the enterprise mobility innovator knew it had made the right decision.
“The Schellman team did a really nice job of saying, ‘Here’s what we are talking about with this assessment, here are the kinds of things we’ll be looking at, and here’s how the process works,” Kellner explained. “And it was a really efficient process from my point of view. It was straightforward and organized, so from my perspective, the fact that Schellman was willing to educate us and provide fair and reasonable expectations that were met, those were keys to success for us.”
