San Francisco, CA -- February 23, 2021 -- Today, Very Good Security (VGS), the modern standard for data security and compliance, has further cemented its commitment to securing the world’s information by empowering organizations to prepare for their first SOC 2 audits completely free with VGS Control (Control).
Achieving SOC 2 compliance has historically been a costly, time-consuming endeavor, burdened by countless checklists and spreadsheets. As a result, many organizations put off pursuing SOC 2 — leaving themselves and their partners exposed to greater risks of data breaches and hacks. VGS employs a fundamentally different approach to data security and compliance, which drastically improves an organization's ability to seek and maintain SOC 2 compliance using VGS Control. Now, any organization can build a strong security posture to achieve SOC 2 compliance, without letting price get in the way of Very Good Security.
Control solves compliance with one simple integration. Organizations easily implement, monitor, and enforce security best practices and compliance standards using Control to immediately improve their security posture and achieve compliance certification in weeks, rather than months.
“We’re committed to making security accessible, so the decision to give organizations the tools they need to implement a real security program and obtain compliance was an easy one,” said Jonathan Cordeau, Head of Product, VGS Control. “The best way to help businesses operate more securely is by democratizing access to security best practices, frameworks and guidance. Helping organizations achieve SOC 2 compliance aligns perfectly with our broader mission here at VGS.”
Control acts as the interpretation layer for organizations, between compliance frameworks such as SOC 2, PCI, HIPAA, and ISO 27001, and the auditors who review evidence and certify compliance. Organizations that use Control no longer have to worry about complex legalese, writing policies or manually running endless checks across their technology systems. This solves over 75% of their (previously manual) compliance work, so that they can focus on building their business without being encumbered by regulatory and compliance requirements.
“We made a commitment early on to our customers, who trust us with critical information, that security would be a top product priority. This led us to putting SOC 2 compliance on our roadmap, and conversations with almost everyone in the space,” shared Ross Rich, Founder of B2B sales platform Accord. “VGS Control stood out as not only the true expert, but the only platform that could automate the entire compliance process. The VGS approach helped us implement real security improvements as a part of our compliance work, making the decision a no-brainer."

SOC examinations provide an independent, entity-wide assessment of cybersecurity efforts — giving boards, investors, business partners, and other stakeholders confidence in an organization’s cybersecurity risk management program. SOC 2 engagement also provides users with insight into an organization’s cybersecurity controls. There are significant differences between the audience, subject matter, and scope of each service, each of which can be pursued with VGS Control.
