“Our goal is to help our clients become more trustworthy in the eyes of their clients” Tom Arad says. He's definite about that stance.
As CTO of Scytale, Tom is adamant about his platform’s role as a key to his clients unlocking revenue. A scytale (the company’s namesake) was one of the earliest forms of creating encoded messages between two people. It was a way of transferring trust.
Scytale (the company) is trust transfer for the modern organization. As a compliance automation product, they help their clients acquire critical security certifications with ease.
Tom knows the compliance space well, and knows what needed to change about it. “Being compliant, whether with SOC II Type 2 or ISO 27001, takes a very, very long time. It takes about six months to one year for a certification to go through, and it's not fun at all. We ease the pain and aim to reduce the time spent on compliance by 90%.”
Tom and his team also knew what their org needed to scale: integrations with major platforms across HR, ATS, and Ticketing.
Ruminating over their roadmap Tom reflects: “The spec was written. The use case was defined. … The only question was: how do we implement it?”
