Armanino LLP, one of the 25 largest accounting and business consulting firms in the U.S., has announced it supports Tugboat Logic’s Security Assurance Platform to provide an integrated security audit process. Companies rely on compliance audits like SOC 2 to demonstrate their security and compliance posture to give customers peace of mind.

This new integration helps organizations, which must gather evidence independently of their auditor, automate the process, monitor controls in real-time and provide automated policy & procedures generation that save time and reduce human errors. Armanino and Tugboat Logic create a coordinated process to supply companies with expert guidance and automated measures to produce a SOC 2 report in an efficient, yet independent manner.

“This new integration streamlines the SOC 2 process by deploying our experts to examine and interpret audit evidence collected by Tugboat Logic’s automated platform on behalf of clients,” said Liam Collins, partner and RAAS practice leader at Armanino. “Leveraging automation with Tugboat means that clients can greatly expedite their path to compliance, reduce cost and gain greater transparency into the audit process.”

Companies often need more than a SOC 2 report, which normally means starting the evidence collection process from scratch. With Tugboat Logic’s Readiness Dashboard, gathered evidence can be repurposed for other critical certifications supported by Armanino, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), ISO 27001 and more.

“Tugboat Logic’s Security Assurance Platform is a natural fit with an award-winning firm like Armanino because of the capabilities they have to help clients,” said Ray Kruck, CEO and founder of Tugboat Logic Inc. “Businesses benefit from our Continuous Compliance Dashboard combined with guidance from Armanino’s experienced team of auditors.”

Armanino’s integration with Tugboat Logic aligns with its vision to seek out and deploy innovative solutions for clients, developed both internally and through outside relationships, to ensure access to best-in-breed tools. The firm continues to invest in automation, data and analytics and AI to optimize performance and client outcomes.
