Information security startup Scrut Automation has raised $3 Mn in seed funding from Lightspeed and Endiya Partners.
Information security startup Scrut Automation was founded by Aayush Ghosh Choudhury and Kush Kaushik in 2021.
“Managing compliance towards the latest Infosec global standards and responding to Enterprise Infosec assessments are the most painful parts of a CTO’s job. Our approach is to combine technology with human expertise to cover even the edge cases, and thus offload most of the compliance-related work from the CTO’s table, so that they can focus on building the business and not worry about compliance.” Aayush Ghosh Choudhury, co-founder and CEO, Scrut Automation said.
The company will use the freshly-infused capital to expand operations in the US, EU, and Asia markets. It will also enhance automation capabilities and aims to create a large marketplace for infosec resources including auditors, subject matter experts and penetration testers.
“We are excited to back the Scrut team given their deep combined experience of over ten years in information security and compliance management with over 3000 assessments across every imaginable compliance use case. We are confident that their full-stack compliance and security offering will help fast-growing companies globally accelerate revenue growth.” Dev Khare, partner at Lightspeed, said.
Information security startup Scrut Automation brings all Infosec compliance standards and internal SOPs into one platform, reuse evidence across multiple standards and controls, with the platform automatically mapping them to relevant clauses.
“Information Security Compliance is a must-have for enterprises as well as mid-size IT/ITeS/SaaS companies globally. A One-Stop-Shop SaaS Platform like Scrut that automates compliance-related collaboration, controls, and monitoring, is finding resonance with CTOs and compliance teams worldwide,” Sateesh Andra of Endiya Partners, said.
Information security startup Scrut Automation aims to build the largest SaaS-enabled marketplace for Infosec resources, like auditors, penetration testers and subject matter experts.
