"[The onboarding] was really good. I enjoyed it. Pretty quick. I know all I needed - I had some expectations, and they were clearly met."

Legal-Tech Startup

"[Vanta and Drata] were more in line with a traditional sales call which included a qualifying call, understanding budget constraints, and ending with an enticing quote and a limited time offer. With TrustCloud, the onboarding felt engrained in the startup way - here's the product, here's what we are doing, take it and enjoy it."


Legal-Tech Startup

"This is easy to do. Very powerful. Look forward to getting my hands dirty in the product."

"[The onboarding] was good and pretty easy. The other competitors are doing sales calls. TrustCloud's onboarding call is unique in the way that's not a sales call."

IoT Platform

"The onboarding is good, very good. TrustCloud answered most of my questions. [SOC 2] is a daunting task and not fun, but we are very serious in achieving SOC 2. TrustCloud has been very helpful."

Why is it free? 
We’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do. We believe that security should be accessible to all startups. Security is fundamental to every business, and as an entrepreneurial organization we understand the challenges of launching your own business. We are giving access to TrustCloud for Free, so you can get the foundation you need to drive enterprise business.

How long does Onboarding take?
In 5 minutes, you will get your SOC 2 plan in place. It typically takes 6 weeks to 3 months to get audit-ready. You can cut this time in half by inviting your team to TrustCloud.

What should I prep before onboarding?
You'll need a list of your business's SaaS tools. If you don't know your tech stack, that's ok! You can invite your team to add the tools they use. TrustCloud will have only read metadata about the configuration settings for your tools like AWS, Google, or Okta so that we can validate and generate evidence for your compliance program automatically.

Do you have auditors that you recommend? 
Yes, we work with multiple audit firms and will ensure you have the best experience possible throughout your audit and after.

How will this help my team?
Many startups tried to manage their compliance manually using spreadsheets and consultants, which is painful, expensive, and time-consuming. With TrustCloud, you can automate up to 80% of tools and processes - including evidence collection and workflows - all for free.
