How to automate your security compliance

How to automate your security compliance | Meiran Galis - Scytale AI

In this compelling episode of the Tekpon SaaS Podcast, host Cristian Dina converses with Meiran Galis, the CEO and co-founder of Scytale AI, a company specializing in security compliance automation. The discussion revolves around the significance of compliance for businesses, especially regarding legal requirements, marketplace entry, fundraising, and building trust with customers.

Scytale’s primary mission is to help companies, particularly startups and mid-sized businesses, achieve and maintain compliance with various security, privacy, and AI regulations.
Meiran highlights the challenges those companies face when attempting to comply with frameworks like SOC 2, ISO 27001, and GDPR for the first time.

The need for extensive resources, expertise, and time can be daunting for many companies, especially startups that are under pressure to move quickly. Scytale addresses these challenges by automating evidence collection, monitoring continuous compliance, and offering expert advisory services. This approach allows companies to identify and remediate gaps more efficiently and stay compliant over the long term.

The discussion then moves to the typical timeline for achieving compliance with Scytale’s solution versus traditional methods. Meiran explains that the onboarding process with Scytale can take one day and a week. Preparation for frameworks like SOC 2 may take a few weeks, and a three-month observation period is standard. In total, the process might take between four to eight months, depending on the company’s size, complexity, and specific needs.

The episode includes Meiran’s journey and the inception of Scytale, which began with his experiences conducting security audits at Ernst & Young (EY). His firsthand exposure to the pains and inefficiencies of traditional compliance processes inspired him to create a better solution. Scytale started in stealth mode three years ago and has rapidly grown to a nearly 70-strong team with global operations.

I found early customers involved in leveraging personal networks and referrals, quickly expanding through word-of-mouth and outstanding client service. For new founders, Meiran advises focusing on a niche with a real pain point and delivering maximum value in a minimum time, even if initial solutions are not scalable.
