Traditional Audit vs. Auditmation™

Today’s broken audit structure has driven organizational risk and compliance data integrity to the brink.

Human-driven audit

AICPA and framework requirements like SOC 2 set a LOW BAR!
Today's 10% - 15% population sampling standard and manual evidence collection practices yield compromised data validity and assurance.

  • Self-attested, human compliance verification
  • 10% population sampling on an annual basis
  • Low to no scalability
  • No competitive differentiation
  • “Validation” by spreadsheets
  • No vendor InfoSec assurance 

Zero Trust Audit

Regardless of the framework, Auditmation™ leverages RPA Bots to
drive zero trust assurance and delivery throughout every audit stream,
and population and control coverages up to 100% - DAILY.

  • Independent, 3rd party assessment structure
  • 100% population coverage – every single day
  • Risk mitigation at the highest scale
  • Competitive distinction
  • Truth by real time machine-driven source data
  • Manage vendor InfoSec SLAs

Absence of
third party
zero trust

The days of trusting vendor self-attested compliance verifications are over,
and actions like these come with consequences.

Our Visionaries Are Talking

The biggest challenges we face as an audit firm, are the perversely counterintuitive standards set by the AICPA.  It’s no wonder 3rd party audits have become as valuable as the paper they are written on.  As a result and through Auditmation™, we’re making a strategic shift by working with our Vendor Risk Management team to bring a continuous auditing structure that will actually embrace meaningful findings and control deficiencies that can impact risk mitigation for enterprise organizations, and their entire ecosystems.
