Complete Cloud Compliance

Shujinko’s approach is to bring cloud compliance know-how together with automation to make compliance and audits fast and easy for our customers. Shujinko helps its customers confidently prepare for an audit by automating the vast majority of the technical controls that are error-prone to set up in a compliant way, as well as the evidence collection and documentation that takes thousands of hours to complete.

How We Got Here

Shujinko was founded by cloud compliance experts, Scott Schwan and Matt Wells. Both have been through large scale audits at companies like Starbucks, Tommy Bahama, Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Red Lobster. They have seen how it can take thousands of hours to manually build cloud environments with proper controls as well as the time it takes to prepare for an audit. Shujinko’s mission is to help our customers get to market faster by leveraging our SaaS platform to construct secure and compliant cloud environments while at the same time automating evidence collection for our customers’ IT audits.
