Drata’s Solution on AWS

Connecting AWS to Drata offers continuous monitoring on AWS through automated daily testing and evidence collection to validate the compliance posture of an organization’s AWS footprint for frameworks, standards, and regulations such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, and several others. Additionally, Drata continuously discovers and imports all AWS virtual assets to streamline the asset collection and categorization process, helping to eliminate burdensome manual processes. This allows auditors to review in-scope assets without the need for end-user intervention.

“Using both Drata and AWS hand-in-hand has made our journey to becoming SOC 2 Type 2 compliant painless,” said Adam Ilowite, CEO at Axero Solutions. “These platforms work together and have helped our organization improve our security protocols, and add automated control monitoring. It’s taken the headache out of our continuous compliance efforts.”
