Learn how Vendict successfully helped SimilarWeb complete security questionnaires faster and more accurately by leveraging their entire knowledge base.
SecuriThings is one of the world’s first IoTOPs solution providers to support educational institutions, airports, municipalities, and private enterprises managing their large-scale IoT devices.
Deep into the world of IoT security, SecuriThings Director of Customer Solutions, Ido Jaffe was challenged by the day-to-day requirements of receiving and completing routine security questionnaires.
Knowing that potential clients had to meet and confirm strict compliance and regulatory requirements before adopting new software, the supporting role that Ido and his team played in the sales cycle was paramount–but inefficient, investment-heavy, and mundane.
When looking for a solution to the problem, Ido considered the security needs of his own company–and those of his clients. Trusting that Vendict’s AI would be able to meet their strict safety standards and help automate an entirely inefficient task, SecuriThings invested in the Vendict solution to help get the job done.
Now well versed in and using the software in their day-to-day activities, this is Ido’s recount of recognizing where the challenges l ay within his own team and choosing a product that would help speed up their response.
SecuriThings is no stranger to receiving and completing security questionnaires given their high-growth pace. On the contrary, it’s an expectation with the CISO and sales teams that most, if not all, end customers will require routine compliance questions to be answered before they can adopt a new product, service, or device.
Recognizing that his team was undertaking a lot of manual data entry and having to go back and forth within the company to get the simple questionnaire task done, Ido considered what products on the market could help automate and streamline this day-to-day routine.
Another expectation that needed to be met? In Ido’s words: “We’re currently investing a lot of resources in meeting several standards of compliance, including SOC2. We expected that [the product provider] would play a role in helping us prepare to meet SOC2 compliance.
After considering several vendors on the market, SecuriThings decided to go with Vendict. Why? After only a few months of implementation, Ido confirms that Vendict both saves his team a lot of time and—equally as important—the software is helping the company achieve their ISO and SOC2 processes.
When considering the unique needs of ICT and CISO teams in the industry, Ido reflects on Vendict’s highly useful solution for his colleagues in similar situations.
“Vendict is useful for CISOs, Sales Engineers, and Solution teams that are responsible for the onboarding of new clients.”
He confirms: “The onboarding process was very short and easy. We didn’t really need to do much. Vendict took care of everything.”
For potential clients out there looking to maximize efficiency, productivity, and free up hands to get their teams’ focus back to other matters at hand, we think that Vendict will be able to get the job done.
