Shujinko Launches Industry's First Automated Evidence Collection for Enterprise Cloud Compliance Audits

The new software automation engine automatically crawls and collects vital evidence for security and compliance audits directly from AWS and Azure cloud infrastructure.

FREMONT, CA : Shujinko is the pioneer in automated audit preparation, today introduced the industry’s first Automated Evidence Collection engine, providing organizations with the automatic push of a button collection of the evidence from their AWS and Azure cloud infrastructure. The engine helps organizations to rapidly gather technical evidence, including encryption of data at rest, encryption key management, network segmentation and configuration, and customers’ results in a formatted .pdf report. Automated Evidence Collection is available in the advanced version of the company’s new AuditX platform; it not only saves engineering time and speeds audit preparation and readiness, but it also gathers the critical metadata and timestamps to enhance audit completeness and accuracy at any point in time.

“It’s tremendously complex, time-consuming and painful to orchestrate evidence collection in parallel for globally distributed public cloud and hybrid infrastructures,” says Scott Schwan, Shujinko CEO and co-founder. With our new Automated Evidence Collection engine, this entire process can use automation to collect, aggregate, and organize evidence much more quickly. It’s a massive win for organizations struggling through multiple audits, conflicting priorities, and juggling limited resources.”

“The fact that theres a divorce between execution of best practices and collecting evidence to show adherence seems ridiculous in a modern cloud deployment,” states Errin Coburn, director of cybersecurity at Delta Dental of Washington. “What I want is a compliance easy button that just automates that whole process.”

Shujinkos Automated Evidence Collection architecture is designed to be extensible across services, clouds, and regions; scalable to handle even massive compliance audits, and robust enough to manage large complex enterprise environments seamlessly. Moreover, it frees enterprises from the need to chase changes as cloud operating systems and services evolve continually. 

Shujinkos Automated Evidence Collection is designed to save organizations thousands of valuable engineering and devops hours, freeing them up to work on top priorities that grow the business, instead of spending their time manually capturing hundreds of screenshots from complex cloud infrastructures to prepare for an audit. Additionally, automating evidence collection, audit preparation scales and evolves in lock-step with rapidly changing applications and underlying cloud infrastructure. The evidence can be collected at any point in time, only by pressing a button, and the collection process is tamper-proof, stamped as automated, and requires zero manual labor by your organization’s most skilled technical staff.
