The overview gives you basic information about TrustCloud® and its applications to achieve, share, and verify trust obligations with customers.

What Is It?

TrustCloud® is a Trust Assurance Platform designed for startups, SMBs, and enterprises to achieve, share, and verify their trust obligations with customers. TrustCloud consists of three applications:

  1. TrustOps: is an automated control verification and compliance adherence application to help you effortlessly and cost-effectively achieve audit-readiness for multiple infosec and data security, privacy, and governance standards simultaneously.
  2. TrustShare:  Elegant, real-time, responsive trust-sharing portal to proactively share your trust and compliance program at the start of a sales process. This avoids endless follow-ups on security assessments with customers. Machine-learning and NLP applications to auto-generate accurate answers for security questionnaires by using information directly in your TrustCloud.
  3. TrustRegister: uses a predictive intelligence tool to eliminate manual, unreliable processes and optimize your risk management program. TrustRegister helps you identify risks, streamline remediation, and assess business impact so you can maintain a proactive program—good riddance to spreadsheets.
