Trustero, a Palo Alto, California-based startup offering Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) for enterprises, has emerged from stealth mode with $8 million in seed funding.

The investment round was led by Zetta Venture Partners, with participation from Engineering Capital and Vertex Ventures.

Founded in 2020, Trustero claims its CaaS platform can streamline the audit process, leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to help organizations establish and manage regulatory compliance, including vulnerability assessment and security risk analysis.

Trustero automatically checks for SOC 2 compliance and alerts organizations if they become non-compliant, while also providing remediation suggestions and information on what others did to meet compliance.

The company can import existing SOC-compliant controls and policies and also offers access to pre-packaged, auditor-vetted policies and to customizable policy templates, so that enterprises can become “audit-ready” faster.

“Trustero is designed and built to help businesses create trust amongst their customer and partner ecosystem,” Trustero CEO and founder Phillip Liu said. “We understand the challenges fast-growing companies face, including the investment in time and effort needed to maintain strong security and compliance postures.”
