A-LIGN is the First Organization to Provide a Complete Compliance Automation Solution and Full Audit Services

A-LIGN Disrupts the Cybersecurity Compliance Industry with new features and an optimized audit process. A-SCEND, the intuitive cybersecurity compliance automation software, provides a single-provider seamless approach from readiness to report.

A-LIGN, the leading cybersecurity compliance and audit firm, announced today the release of significant compliance automation updates to their compliance management platform, A-SCEND, making it the industry’s first end-to-end compliance software on the market resulting in the highest quality reports efficiently. A-SCEND allows teams of all sizes to gain instant visibility into their cybersecurity and compliance standing, create policies, and manage evidence, all in one centralized platform.  

A-SCEND is A-LIGN’s award-winning compliance automation platform that combines decades of auditor experience, millions of information requests reviewed for compliance, and thousands of client input with intuitive automation. The software can meet the demand of all organizational compliance audit needs, enable security year-round, and help rapidly scale an organization’s business as its compliance needs grow. As the top SOC 2 issuer in the world, and with the broadest breadth and depth of compliance services, A-LIGN can support businesses of any size across any industry with their compliance needs. 

“Existing audit readiness software providers typically cover the readiness portion of an audit but require additional vendors to conduct audits and assessments for organizations. In turn, traditional CPA firms can conduct the audit portion of compliance, but typically have a long and tedious process for collecting evidence and ensuring an organization is audit-ready,” said Scott Price, CEO of A-LIGN. “With the combination of the new A-SCEND features and our audit experience, organizations now have a complete, comprehensive solution with the most optimized audit process through a single provider. We bridge the gap between auditor experience and intuitive compliance automation software and can support the entire audit journey from readiness to report.”

  • Continuous Monitoring: Reduces potential security threats 
  • Policy Center: Provides readily available industry best practices

Organizations will benefit from a streamlined end-to-end audit journey that results in a trusted, well-respected SOC 2 report for stakeholders who require the utmost validation of their protected information. With these new feature introductions to A-SCEND and an optimized audit process, A-LIGN continues to bring its customer-first, technology-forward services approach to organizations worldwide.
